Austin FC Stadium Preview Center in the Works

To showcase its upcoming new stadium, Austin FC is planning to open an experience center this summer.

Set to begin play in 2021 as MLS’s 27th club, Austin FC is working to open a new stadium to coincide with its inaugural season. The $240 million, privately financed soccer-specific stadium will be constructed at the city-owned McKalla Place in North Austin.

As a way to showcase the facility and provide more information about the club, Austin FC is slated to open an experience center. Austin FC has been teasing the space on social media, and club officials are now offering more information about what it will feature. More from the Austin American-Statesman:

The Austin FC experience center will have a physical model of the stadium, team president Andy Loughnane said. The plan is to have it open this summer, likely at the team offices near the intersection of Kramer Lane and Metric Boulevard.

Visits will be by appointment only, and won’t require a season ticket deposit beforehand.

“It’s something that we want everybody and anybody who’s interested in Austin FC to have the opportunity to do,” Loughnane said.

The club is currently working to gain city zoning approvals for the stadium project, with hopes of breaking ground in September.
