The stadium, which will be built in the city’s McKalla Place neighborhood, has entertainment spaces that are said to reflect Austin’s culture and “love of indoor/outdoor spaces”. It features a number of outdoor supports’ bars, which will also be able to put on live music during gamedays.

Elsewhere, its premium West Terrace Porch is an open-sided bar that has views over the field from its penthouse-level position.

The stadium is being designed by Gensler, who also delivered other MLS venues such as LAFC’s Banc of California Stadium and Minnesota United’s Allianz Field. Austin FC’s venue will be open-air and feature a canopy roof to protect fans from the sun, as well as a tight footprint with a steep seating bowl, and a single-tier supporters’ section to accommodate approximately 3,400 fans.

The stadium is expected to break ground in September this year.
