Austin FC is one seat closer to opening the doors to its new stadium for the 2021 Major League Soccer season.


On Tuesday, the organization posted to Facebook that the club installed the first stadium seat of the Austin FC Stadium at McKalla Place. The stadium, located near the Domain, will reportedly hold 20,000 plus fans when it opens for the team's next season.

Austin FC also launched their "Verde Listos" campaign, highlighting local Austinites in an effort to better connect with the Austin community. The campaign includes Austin musician Shakey Graves, Valentina's pitmaster Eliana Gutierrez and muralist Chris Rogers among others.

The Austin FC season starts in the spring. Season tickets went on sale in August and sold out, however, fans can add themselves to the waitlist for when tickets become available again.
