Where are Eagles home matches played?

The Eagles play the majority of their home matches at Otterbein University’s Memorial Stadium in Westerville, Ohio. There, the parking is free and the scenery is beautiful.

How many matches do the Eagles normally play in a season? How many at home?

For the past two seasons, the Eagles have scheduled 14 total matches. Eight of them have been designated home matches. In 2017, we earned points in six out of our eight home matches.

How do season memberships work?

Our season members (or season ticket holders, to look at it another way) get access to every Eagles home match in that calendar year. A 2018 Eagles membership is good for any event listed as a “home event” by the team, including preseason friendlies, indoor matches, and league matches, too. 

There are three membership tiers: At the individual level, your membership is good for you (and only you, you soccer-supporter you). At the friend level, you can bring a friend to each Eagles home event for no extra charge (it can be a different friend each time!). At the family level, you and your entire immediate family get access to every Eagles home event. We’re flexible with what “immediate family” means, but we tend to limit the number of family members, including the membership holder, to six.

If the club hosts a Marquee event (such as a match at MAPFRE Stadium, for example), your membership will not cover the full fee. Members will however receive a discounted ticket price. In 2017, members got $10 off each ticket to our match at the home of Columbus Crew SC. That ticket was good for entrance to our match and the Crew’s match later that night. Pretty good deal, huh?

Season memberships are on sale now!

In what league to the Eagles play?

Columbus is a part of the Women’s Premier Soccer League, the largest and longest-running women’s soccer league in the country. There are over 100 teams in the WPSL, ranging from California to New England. The Eagles are entering their fifth WPSL season in 2018. 

How much were single-match tickets in 2017?

A ticket to any one home match in 2017 was $10. Our indoor friendlies at Resolute Athletic Complex in December were $5. All of these matches are included if you become a season member!

Are my single-match tickets good for any match?

For the most part, yes! Your ticket is good for entrance to any of our home matches, except those designated as “Marquee”. Our match at MAPFRE Stadium, for example, was a Marquee Event and a Marquee Win.

How about young children? Do they need a ticket?

Anyone six years old and younger can get into any Eagles home match for free, provided they come with a parent or guardian, of course!

Do you offer a discount if I bring a group?

Oh, absolutely! Get in touch with us by emailing groupsales@columbuseaglesfc.com. Our sales team will take care of your group or organization.

Can my youth team be matchday ball kids or walk out with the team for intros?

We’re happy you asked! Yes! We are looking now for groups of future soccer stars who want to volunteer as ball retrievers on matchday, see the game up close, and walk out with the Eagles during introductions. Get in touch with us at info@columbuseaglesfc.com.
