Austin FC has their captain back, and they'll need him as they go against fellow expansion team Nashville SC

In DenVERDE fashion, when hundreds of Austin FC supporters marched in Denver before their club played the Colorado Rapids, the crew is on the road again this week for a NashVERDE event.


For those sticking to Texas, here's some watch parties for you to watch the nationally-televised match at 8 p.m. Sunday.

Austin Anthem watch party, Celis Brewing 10001 Metric Blvd.

Fan club Austin Anthem has set their roots in Celis Brewing, the Verde-clad brewery decked out with "LISTOS" posters and merch that sits just feet away from Q2 Stadium.

This week, the club is back at their home base to watch their club play. The match begins at 8 p.m., but be there early if you want prime seating and parking.

Official Austin FC watch party, 11500B Rock Rose Ave.

Looking to start the party 9 hours before the match? Austin FC is launching another official watch party with live music, raffle awards and the Verde Van, this time at Jack and Ginger's. Test your luck in the raffle for a team-signed jersey and enjoy drink specials by Heineken.

Los Verdes watch party, Hopsquad Brewing 2307 Kramer Ln

Just feet from the party at Celis, Los Verdes is hosting a watch party for those not making it to Nashville. Austin FC fan band La Murga de Austin will be there, and incomers can enjoy $1 off their first beer is they come by Cap Metro or ridesharing. Come early for this one as well if you want good parking.

San Antonio watch party, The Lion and the Rose 17627 La Cantera Pkwy

The Austin FC hype has trickled down to San Antonio. For those a little south on I-35, join San Antonio Austin FC fan club 210 Verdes at The Lion and the Rose just before kickoff, at 7:30 p.m. Beware of the wrath from San Antonio FC fans.

40 Pub Partners

From Round Rock to San Marcos, these 40 pubs are set to show the match as official pub partners of Austin FC. They could get packed, so make sure to be there before kickoff at 8 p.m. Sunday.
