The Columbus Crew of Major League Soccer will take on UNC Chapel Hill in the inaugural Kirk Urso Memorial Match on Sunday February 24th. Kick-off is slated for 1:00p.m. at Macpherson Stadium.  Urso a UNC Chapel Hill alum and former Dynamo and Crew player passed away last August from a congenital heart defect. The Urso Fund was launched in late 2012 to support heart health research and programming in memory of the Crew midfielder. All proceeds from the match will benefit the Kirk Urso Memorial Fund, which is an arm of the Crew Soccer Foundation.  


"When we announced the Kirk Urso Memorial Fund it was intended to honor Kirk's legacy by funding research initiatives focused on congenital heart defects and sudden cardiac death in youth," said Crew President and General Manager Mark McCullers. "The inaugural Urso Memorial Match provides a valuable opportunity to once again draw attention to these goals and garner support through the sport of soccer. The Crew, University of North Carolina and the Dynamo are humbled to be involved with the match, and we look forward to raising awareness and driving proceeds for the Urso Fund."

Urso was originally selected by the Crew in the first round (No.10 overall) in the 2012 Supplemental Draft, and appeared in six games (five starts) with one assist last season before being sidelined by injury. He was a graduate of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where he made four consecutive NCAA Men's College Cup Final Four appearances and captained the team to the 2011 NCAA National Championship. Urso appeared in 25 games scoring four goals with six assists while playing for the Dynamo during the 2008 & 2009 seasons. Urso was admired for his unwavering work ethic and steadfast character both on and off the field.


The match pits the Crew against Urso's college alma mater at Macpherson Stadium in Browns Summit, N.C. Tickets are $10 in advance and $15 on game day (the student price on game day will remain $10) and can be purchased by calling (336) 669-0841 or visiting TheCrew.com/UrsoFund, with donations for the Urso Fund accepted via the same URL.
