After a week off, Austin FC is looking to win their first-ever rematch as they play Sporting Kansas City for their last match of an eight-game road stretch.

After losing to Kansas City 2-1 in early May following a catastrophic red card call, Austin is looking for vengeance against the No. 2 team in the West.


Austin FC will be at Q2 Stadium for their home opener June 19, but sit tight: there's still one more watch party to go before the club comes home.

Here's where to watch the Austin vs. Kansas City match at 2 p.m. on Saturday, June 12th:

Austin Anthem takes on Dreamland, 2770 W Hwy 290

Austin Anthem, Austin FC's first supporters' group, is back at Dreamland in Dripping Springs to watch Austin take on their head coach's former club. Expect more than just soccer—the facility comes with over 90-self pour beer taps, pickleball and mini-golf facilities, and a stage perfect for watching the big game.

Los Verdes' watch party and after party, Hopsquad Brewing Co. 2307 Kramer Lane

From noon till well past Austin FC's 2 p.m. match, head to Hopsquad Brewing for live music, local eats and signature beers. Four bands will hit the stage for an after party following the match. Bring your own lawn chair and find parking early.
