The Nordecke Code of Conduct exists to ensure and maximize the enjoyment of Columbus Crew SC matches for everyone in attendance.
The Nordecke is a supporters section. We pay attention to the match,
wave flags, and participate in chants and songs, and we do this while
standing for the entirety of the match. We want our stadium to be the
most difficult place for opposing clubs to play in all of Major League
Soccer, and this is how we can all make that happen.
There is no place for hate in our soccer stadium. We will not
tolerate unnecessary negativity or bigotry toward fans, players, staff
members, or referees in any capacity.
Respect The Staff
Ushers, ticket takers, and security staff members aren’t our enemies;
they simply want us to have fun while staying safe. We respect requests
when it comes to stadium policies and rules. If you feel that you’ve
been treated unfairly, report the incident to a section leader or
directly to Dan Lolli – the situation will absolutely, positively be
addressed as quickly as possible.
We actively welcome new supporters of Columbus Crew SC, and we are
passionate about sharing our supporter’s mentality in a positive manner.
We encourage those around us to become involved, we share our flags and
banners, and we help others learn our chants and songs.
Do Not Interfere With The Match
No matter how you feel during the match, it is never
acceptable to throw anything onto the field. This is true of entering
the field of play as well. This is not how we show our support for Crew
Our sole purpose is to support Columbus Crew SC. Creating or
participating in a physical or verbal altercation will never be
tolerated. If you start or participate in a fight, you will be removed
from the Nordecke.
Those who fail to abide by the Nordecke Code of Conduct, as
determined by stadium management, may be ejected from the facility,
subject to arrest, and/or banned from further events. Group disobedience
will result in a loss of privileges and rights for the entire Nordecke
