What's the surrounding area like?

MAPFRE Stadium is located on the grounds of the Ohio Expo Center and State Fairgrounds. It is a 5 to 10 minute drive from the Ohio State University and a 10 to 15-minute drive from downtown. That means that while there's not a ton to do in the immediate surrounding area, there are plenty of activities just a short drive away.

How can I spend the day in Columbus before heading to a match?

Franklin Park Conservatory and Botanical Gardens

Stroll past the flowers, world famous Chihuly sculptures, greenery to beat all greenery, and a diversity of rotating exhibitions. Located just a short drive from downtown, this is the perfect place to breathe in a bit of fresh air and stretch those legs.

COSI - Center of Science and Industry

As one of the most famed and storied science museums in the country, COSI is not to be missed. Featuring over 300 interactive exhibits, you can journey to space, learn about atoms, or dive into the deep sea.

German Village

Get a little shopping and dining done while you wander the quaint historic streets of German Village. Stop into the Book Loft while you're there to browse a few titles, followed by a slice of pizza at Artisan Pizza and Cocktails at Harvest/Curio for delicious bites and reads.

Where are the best places to eat and drink near MAPFRE Stadium?

Hounddog's Three Degree Pizza

It just so happens that one of the best pizza shops in Columbus is located smack between The Ohio State University and MAPFRE Stadium. Grab yourself a slice to power up or power down before or after the game, and make sure to ask for one of their more creative toppings. Hot Mama Cajun links, here we come.

The Crest Gastropub

For more upscale fare, head to the Crest Gastropub, just a mile and a half away from MAPFRE Stadium. With plates for one and plates to share, you'll taste your way from the Mediterranean to Mexico. An excellent pre- or post-game option.

Diaspora

Want a taste of Korea, but with an American twist? That's exactly what you'll find at Diaspora. Tuna deep-fried with cream cheese, dumplings, and pizza in seaweed wrap are just a few of the creative twists you'll find here either before or after the game.

What's the best way to get to MAPFRE Stadium?

The Central Ohio Transit Authority runs buses such as the 1, 4, 8 and 12 to the area of the stadium. However, most will require a 15 to almost 30 minute walk at some point throughout your journey, so driving or taking a rideshare is recommended.

Is there any parking?

$15 general parking is available for Crew SC matches. Prices vary for all other events.

What kind of food and drink can visitors expect in MAPFRE Stadium? What are prices like?

The food available at MAPFRE Stadium is surprisingly diverse. You'll find ramen here as well as fried chicken and other American fare and craft beer. Make sure to check out the gyro station as well as the "Beer From Ohio" station. Prices vary widely, but are consistent with stadiums elsewhere…so make sure to stuff your wallet.

What time do doors normally open?

You can head down to the stadium early to enjoy the pre-match atmosphere as the gates open 90 minutes before kickoff.

Put up a second big stage on the other end of the stadium. It will allow for quicker change of bands and less moving to different areas to see the bands.

Liked: Great for a concert venue.
Disliked: Needed a cut through area on the main floor from each side of the stadium. It's a long walk from stage to stage and it makes it hard to get to each stage on time to see the bands.
