The Crew broke ground on Lower.com Field on October 10, 2019, and held its ribbon-cutting ceremony on June 29, 2021. In 2021, the state-of-the-art venue was named the winner of the 2021 James B. Recchie Design Award by Columbus Landmarks and the 2021 Harrison W. Smith Award by the Columbus Downtown Commission.

Lower.com Field is located at the center of the mixed-use Astor Park development downtown in the Arena District. The stadium seats 20,585 spectators and includes 35 suites and 2,492 club seats. Features also include 3,362 safe-standing seats in the Nordecke, the team’s supporters’ section; 220,000-square foot canopy that covers every seat in the stadium and is designed to keep noise in; a sunken field; an outdoor beer garden, officially named the Tipico Sportsbook Biergarten; high-definition scoreboards; a frictionless matchday experience; and two sensory rooms and mothers rooms. The Chase Plaza at the southeast corner establishes the connection to the downtown area, while a new pedestrian bridge connects the area to the Olentangy bike path.

In addition to hosting the Crew’s Major League Soccer matches, Lower.com Field has also hosted the 2021 Campeones Cup (September 29, 2021), as well as two United States Men’s National Team’s 2022 FIFA World Cup Qualifiers and a United States Women’s National Team friendly.
