For those that are curious.
Is the hsh pub open?
Unfortunately not. After the 2011 season the financial burden and terms of the mandated renovations were, at the time, too intrusive to keep the bar open and it was closed for the foreseeable future. There are plans in the works for a second coming of Hooligans Pub, but for the time being we host our parties at Hendoc’s Pub.
How do i become a member?
Simple! Either signup at an HSH event, including the pre-game tailgate, or through our online store. You do not have to be above 21 to join, however Hendoc's is a 21+ establishment.
WHERE DID THE NAME "HUDSON STREET HOOLIGANS" COME FROM?
HSH was formed in 2006 by a group of soccer-loving friends who used to walk down Hudson Street to get to Crew Stadium. Contrary to popular opinion, it’s got nothing to do with that Elijah Wood movie.
WHAT IS HSH'S MATCHDAY ROUTINE?
For home matches, the Hooligans host a tailgate party in the Crew Stadium parking lot. About 30 minutes before kickoff, HSH marches – as a group – into the Stadium with the other Supporters groups.
For away matches, the Hooligans gather at Hendoc’s Pub (2387 N. High St). There’s no way to describe what it’s like to watch an away match with HSH, so you’ll just have to come experience it for yourself.
While there is no mandate that says everyone must stand and bring the noise for the entire 90 minutes of each Crew game, it is strongly recommended. As a matter of fact, if you are sitting down in the Hooligan section, don’t be surprised if someone nearby tries to get you pumped up. And besides, if you’re sitting down you probably won’t be able to see the game!
do i have to stand and sing the whole 90+?
what is with all the flags and banners?
That, in soccer speak, is called Tifo. We do it to show support for the team and sometimes to send a message as a group. Often, the entire Nordecke collaborates on a Tifo project, but individuals and smaller groups are encouraged to make their own as well. If you have questions about how to get started, we’re here to help.
Nordecke (Nor-Deck-Uh) is German for North Corner. It’s German because of Columbus’ rich German history, and it’s North Corner because that’s where the Crew’s supporters groups are. You’ll find HSH members all over Crew Stadium, but our official home is Section 141, in the heart of the Nordecke.
