Agreement reached for Haslam, Edwards families to operate Columbus Crew SC

Major League Soccer announced on Friday that an agreement in principle has been reached with the Haslam and Edwards families to become MLS owners and take over operating rights of Columbus Crew SC beginning in January 2019.

The Haslam family, owners of the NFL's Cleveland Browns, and the Columbus-based Edwards family first emerged as prospective MLS owners in October. Precourt Sports Ventures held Crew SC's operating rights after acquiring them in July 2013 from the Hunt family, who launched the club in 1996.
