Austin FC will get a taste at MLS action and Texan rivalry in one as it kicks off the preseason La Copita tournament this weekend, and it's free to watch for all.

Although the matches are closed to the media and public, fans can live stream the Houston Dynamo and FC Dallas matches on the new Austin FC and Q2 Stadium app, which is available on the Apple iTunes Store and the Google Play store. Later on, the app will live stream all regionally broadcast matches for free.
