Austin FC season opener pushed back two weeks

(Q2 Stadium/Twitter)

Major League Soccer has moved back the start of the 2021 season for the entire league to April 17 due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.


Although the official date was set for April 3, Austin FC was not expected to play in its new Q2 Stadium until early June, so the move may not affect home gameplay.

The move comes after the MLS narrowly avoided a league lockout and finalized a compromise with the MLS Player's Association on Monday. Before Friday, Feb. 5, the league had threatened to halt the season entirely due to issues with the collective bargaining agreement.

Austin FC and the MLS have yet to announce their official schedule, and the league has not disclosed training camp start dates.
