In February 2020, Crew SC announced that it had partnered with Nationwide Children’s Hospital to feature a special Nationwide Children’s jersey for all competitions, with Nationwide becoming the Official Jersey and Insurance Partner of the Crew in 2021. The Black & Gold will continue to work with Nationwide Children’s Hospital, dedicating a month each year to champion “On Our Sleeves,” the movement to transform children’s mental health.
