ICYMI: Here are some of the major talking points from Today's Austin FC announcement.
-Austin FC reitterated it’s intent to work with and partner with Capital Metro in order to provide safe, efficient transport for supporters to and from the stadium.
-The stadium grounds will be built as a ‘soccer park’ instead of just a stadium. (recreational park features such as walking paths, an open green, bike trails, and space for community events)
-There will be 835 onsite parking spots. Seemed low in our opinion but many local businesses will be able to profit from use of their parking spaces, the additional incentive to utilize public transport is an added bonus as well.
-Groundbreaking on the site is scheduled for September 5th, and will begin an 18 month ‘aggresive’ construction campaign in order to have the stadium operational for the 2021 MLS season. (MLS Commissioner Garber will be in attendance)
