Austin FC, the soccer team that will be the city's first major league sports franchise, announced an update to the design of its $260 million stadium that includes a beer hall and expanded merchandise area. From a release sent by the team:
"The North Building design has been updated to prominently feature a new Beer Hall available to all ticketed guests before, during, and after stadium events. The newly created interior-space will feature 18 taps, 20 TV screens, a large video wall, and air-conditioning in the 400-person capacity space. The Beer Hall will be located on the second floor of the building and will also feature a limited set of food options accompanying the wide selection of beers and other drink options."
Austin FC just signed its first player. The stadium is scheduled to open next spring.
