Pack your poncho—rain or shine, the Verde crew will have watch parties all Saturday as Austin FC takes on Minnesota United FC at 7 p.m.

The match will show on the CW Austin, UniMás Austin and the Austin FC app/website, but for those looking for a more immersive matchday experience, here's a list of Austin-area watch parties scheduled for this weekend.


Hopsquad Brewing Co., 2307 Kramer Ln

Rain can't stop the party at Hopsquad Brewing. The site for Los Verdes watch parties has equipped itself with a brand-new waterproof LED screen. Doors open at 12 p.m. and live music will go all day starting at 1 p.m. as a crowd gathers to watch the game. Bring a poncho, a lawn chair and an empty stomach—there's plenty of beer and local food trucks onsite.

Celis Brewing, 10001 Metric Blvd

Austin Anthem, the fan club that brought over 1,000 viewers to a watch party for Austin FC's season opener, is back with a watch party planned at Celis Brewing. Starting at 5 p.m., expect more beers and food trucks at this location, and make sure to bring your Verde gear. RSVP here.

Austin FC Pub Club

If you're looking to enjoy the game at your neighborhood bar, check out the 30+ Pub Club partners that will be streaming the match around town, including Black Sheep Lodge, The Far Out Lounge and Jack and Gingers, to name a few. From Round Rock to San Marcos, there's plenty of places along the I-35 strip that will stream the big match come Saturday.
