MLS Commissioner Don Garber gave an interview to Sports Business Daily today where he confirmed that the Columbus Crew are up for sale.

We are committed to finding a local partner in Columbus, Ohio, for the Columbus Crew. The Hunts still own two MLS teams. They have made a commitment to get out, and we are encouraging them to do so, but we will only do so with the right owners. So we are spending a lot of time on that.

The Crew have been looking for local investors for a while. I believe this is the first time anyone from the league’s front office has commented on it though.
