Hmm. That kind of sucks if true. Let Columbus do their thing.

Somebody needs to knock one of these guys out. At the match.

If columbus asked for this for their non-ao sections I'm 100% for this.If it's being forced on them or these capos are over local AOs then hell no

A sure-fire way to increase the game's popularity in America is to turn USMNT games into events where you get to be yelled at by a Seattle hipster "chant-leader" who travels all over the country and refers to himself as a capo (mafia captain, to most people who have heard it).

Jesus. I hope I don't have to watch these skirts swinging their handbags at each other from my seats.

Watch the fricking game and scream at anyone that looks like they might be Mexican.

How hard is that?

Looks like a lot of the Chapter Leaders are pissed off about this from what I'm seeing.

Why would these Seattle dudes agree to this? I would feel like such a douche bag going to a different city and forcing them to chant "the right way".

That's bogus. Some people just want to go to the game and watch and yell at the ref etc, they may not want to stand up the whole game or chant the whole game. And there is nothing wrong with that.

What's so stupid about it (if true), is that Columbus has been a damn good home field advantage for us in terms of fan support a lot longer than Seattle.

AO response

The American Outlaws statement on the USA vs Mexico World Cup Qualifier in Columbus


info@theamericanoutlaws.com August 28, 2013



Reports published at a handful of soccer websites on The American Outlaws plans for the USA vs Mexico World Cup Qualifer in Columbus are incorrect.

Neither the American Outlaws or the US Soccer Federation are paying for any capo to fly to this game or any future game. The tifo at this crucial qualifier will be organized and run by AO Columbus and local supporters.

AO Seattle is not being tasked to take over the in-stadium experience for this or any future USMNT games outside Seattle. A Seattle takeover of tifo and singing at all USMNT games has never been the plan or intention and any reports of such are false.

This USMNT game is unprecedented with the size and scope of the supporter section. There will be 20-plus supporters sections packed into Columbus Crew Stadium and the majority of those people will be from somewhere other than Columbus. We believe, and our members agree, that we need to have a more organized and unified supporters’ section at all USMNT games. This game has created unique challenges with how to do this.

We have talked and discussed a plan for this game with various members and chapter leaders across the country, including AO Columbus. We even reached out this month looking for capos for the Mexico game. We had several AO members step up and answer the call, offering to organize the supporters sections for this very important game. One of the members stepping up happened to be from Seattle. We have been looking for local and nationwide capos that can represent our nationally diverse section for years now. The need for experienced capos grows as supporters sections at USMNT games, particularly qualifiers and Gold Cup matches, increase in size.

We are always looking for help from our members across this great country. We have asked capos locally and from all over the country to volunteer for this unique experience. We look to have an estimated 14 capos spread across the 20-plus sections. Part of our thinking in addressing the ongoing issue of dueling chants at games is having “main” capos at games.

We are always looking for new people to step up and lead in stadium coordination. As the leading supporters group for the United States National Team we have an obligation, as fans, to be there at every game loud and proud for our boys on the field. We need to live up to this and we will do everything we can to support their efforts on the pitch.

Our goal has always been, and will always be, to Unite and Strengthen fans outside and inside the stadium. We will never rest in our efforts to grow and improve the support for our Yanks.

So somebody is lying. Either AO national or the AO Columbus chapter leader.
