The Columbus Crew are looking forward to host the Chicago Fire on Thursday in the Eastern Conference Championship.

“It’s huge,” Crew general manager Mark McCullers said. “It’s what we’ve been working for, for me, 10 years now. I’m coming up on my 10-year anniversary on Dec. 1. We’ve put ourselves in the position we’ve never been in the club’s history.”

Crew boss Sigi Schmid want to see a packed Columbus Crew Stadium on Thursday.

“I would like to see us fill this place on Thursday night. I’d really like to see it packed,” Schmid said. “As far as I know, there’s not a lot of pro sports in Columbus. I know Ohio State is probably close to pro football. I don’t think there’s a lot of pro sports here and it’s been a long time since there’s been a (Columbus) professional team on the verge of a winning title.

“There’s absolutely no reason to me why we can’t pack this place with all the people in Columbus who say they like soccer. That’s my marketing pitch. If we sell out I expect to get a bonus from McCullers.”
