Austin FC joined Major League Soccer (MLS) as the League’s 27th club in January 2019. In June 2021, Austin FC began play in the new, 100% privately financed, $260 million state-of-the-art Q2 Stadium. 


In its inaugural year, the Club saw every home match sold-out, while the Club’s season ticket waitlist grew to over 28K seat deposits. The Club also garnered the highest content engagement rate in professional sports thanks to a rabid fan base ready to support the Verde and Black.
