New Austin MLS soccer stadium?

Recommended Posts

MLS’ Columbus Crew seem intent on moving to Austin in time for 2019 season. While it was stated move would occur “if a stadium deal couldn’t be reached in Columbus,” owner Anthony Precourt has already conducted negotiations with Austin officials, surveyed the market, trademarked names (Austin FC & Austin Athletic), hired PR firms locally and begun a social media campaign aimed at the Austin market (mls2atx.com). Simply put, these moves don’t sound like he wants to stay in Columbus.

Stadium location options being looked at (doubtful these happen)

Even though these plans are for a USL (Division 2) franchise, Circuit of the Américas could be a potential site for a soccer stadium.

Wouldn’t be the first time a soccer stadium is located next to a race track (Sporting Kansas City).
