New MLS team start building new stadium

Austin FC break ground on new stadium

Thursday 12th September 2019

Austin FC have broken ground on their new stadium. The team will officially join the MLS Western Conference in 2021 as the 27th expansion team and hope to have their new $250m stadium open in time.

The 20,500 seat venue is being built with cooling in mind - high canopy roofs and open corners will allow air to circulate whilst breathable mesh seating will stay cool on hot days. With the average temperature above 80 degrees for 7 months of the season, keeping fans cool is a high priority.

Austin FC will be come the third MLS team from the state of Texas, joining neighbours Houston Dynamo and FC Dallas. The city is home to almost a million people and the club have received over 35,000 deposits for season tickets with unsuccessful applicants being placed onto a waiting list.
