For the eighth time in club history, the Columbus Crew SC will play in Major League Soccer Eastern Conference Final.

The Crew will host the New England Revolution Sunday.

The Crew said a significantly reduced number of ticketed individuals, in addition to friends and family of the team will be allowed to be in attendance.

Columbus has been dominant this season at MAPFRE Stadium going 9-1-0 and outscoring opponents 20-6.

This will be the first meeting between the Crew and Revolution this season. Last season, the Crew was undefeated in two matchups with New England.

Columbus advanced to the Eastern Conference Final with a 2-0 win in extra time over Nashville SC.

Since the semifinal victory, the Crew has announced that a player has tested positive for COVID-19.

The team says since the positive test, no other positive cases were returned for players or staff. As a precaution, training will not take place on Wednesday and the facility will undergo sanitization. Crew SC officials said they will continue to administer COVID-19 testing each day this week.

The last time the Crew hosted an Eastern Conference Final was in 2008 when Columbus defeated the Chicago Fire before going on to win its first MLS Cup.

Columbus and New England are set to kickoff at 3 p.m. Sunday on ABC 6.
