Tickets for all at-home games will be sold through Austin FC’s website.
The stadium will also host two important games this summer. Q2 Stadium’s first ever game will be June 16, featuring the reigning World Cup Champions U.S. Women’s National Team vs. Nigeria. This will be the first ever visit to Austin by a U.S. Soccer National Team.
Later this summer, the arena will be the site for one of two semifinal matches for the 2021 CONCACAF Gold Cup July 29. So get ready Austin, because soccer is finally here!
