Precourt, whose Precourt Sports Ventures has owned the Major League Soccer club since 2013, said last week the team will make the move unless a new, privately-financed stadium is built in downtown Columbus. The team also previously announced they would not give refunds.

Precourt says the team will stay in Columbus for 2018, but a future beyond that is unknown. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
