Austin Loses Heart Breaker to Seattle, July 22, 2021

The Austin FC had not played an MLS match since July 7th.  The result was a re-energized, but equally as in effective, team.  The Verde & Black fell to the Seattle Sounders FC before a capacity crowd and a nationally televised audience by a score of 1-0.  The only score of the match came of a miraculous chip shot from Seattle substitute Raul Ruidiaz from 43  yards out.

Austin FC Drops First Home Match, July 7, 2021

The wrong kind of history was made as the Austin FC lost their first match at Q2 Stadium to the LAFC by a score of 2-0.  It was Austin’s fourth match with home field advantage. The Verde & Black controlled most of the match, but LA capitalized on the Austin’s mistakes and led in the only statistic that count: goals.  

Historic Night for Austin FC, July 1, 2021

The Austin FC (3-4-5) behaved just like a Central Texas summer: a long dry spell quenched by a hurricane.  The dry spell included six shutouts over the last seven matches.  And the hurricane came by way of a massive 4-1 victory over the Portland Timbers (4-1-6).  The match included the first home-pitch goal and the first home win for the Verde & Black.

Los Verdes, La Murga Know How to Put on a Show, June 19, 2021

It wouldn’t be a soccer match without a rally.  And the leaders of the Austin FC Major League Soccer rally are Los Verdes ATX and La Murga de Austin. The groups work collaboratively and could easily be confused.  To keep it simple, consider Los Verdes to be the broader booster club and La Murga to be the musical band for the club. 

Matthew McConaughey Preps Austin FC, June 16, 2021

After years of preparation, and eight long weeks on the road, Austin is ready.  Ready, that is for the first home match of the Austin FC.  The team brings a 2-win, 4-loss, 2-draw record to the inaugural opener of Q2 Stadium in a match against the San Jose Earthquakes.  The match will be played before a sold-out crowd that has been aching for professional soccer since rumors of a team first circulated in 2018. 

Austin FC: Privacy is Job 1, May 12, 2021

A recent Austin FC media event taught me an important lesson on Major League Soccer.  Teams protect their privacy like a reluctant celebrity. Don’t get me wrong.  The team’s public relations team was top notch.  The most professional and courteous group of professionals that you will meet.  But they tightly managed the messaging by limiting access.
