The Crew hadn't made the playoffs for the past 3 seasons, however they were the best team in the MLS the whole season.
Crew coach Sigi Schmid said, "You go through a lot of emotions when you win a game like this. I'm happy for our team and the city of Columbus. We stuck together all year, we're a team. The group was tremendous and worked hard every day. That's what got us here and that's how we did it."
