Columbus Crew Announces Plans To Honor Urso

Aug 9, 2012

The Columbus Crew will honor the late midfielder Kirk Urso before Saturday's home match. A floral wreath bearing his image will be on the plaza in front of the stadium, and a video tribute will play on the scoreboard before the match. Players and coaches will wear an armband with Urso's number during the match, and a commemorative patch for the remainder of the season. The Franklin County Coroner is awaiting toxicology test results before determining the official cause of death. Urso died early Sunday after collapsing at a downtown bar.
