At nearly every Austin FC Meet & Greet a fan asks about merchandise.
So, we’re here to tell you where you can find Austin FC gear in the ATX and online, what merch is available, and speculate about jerseys. Seeing as we’ve purchased many Austin FC items already, we consider ourselves experts 😉
Get Austin FC Gear Locally
Your best bet for buying official Austin FC t-shirts, hoodies, and other merch around town are at these stores:
- Academy Sports+Outdoors
- Dick’s Sporting Goods
- The Soccer Corner
- Soccer90 (Frisco, TX)
- YETI flagship store
Selection at local stores can be hit or miss depending on the time of year, so be sure to call or order online first before heading there.
If you don’t mind a wait (and shipping charges), then MLSStore.com by far has the largest selection of sizes and variety of merchandise available. Online you’ll find:
- Accessories (decals, magnets, koozies, lanyards)
- Cups & Mugs
- Kitchen & Bar
- Pandemic masks
- Training Jersey
In February 2020, the inaugural training jersey became available in the MLS online store. Early that month the training top actually showed up first in the Adidas store—under the wrong club name (Nashville SC)—but was quietly removed after a few days. (A “Jersey” section was added to the Online store for future jersey roll-outs.)
Also in February 2020, YETI was named official jersey partner of Austin FC. Right away the company released 20oz & 30oz Austin FC logo tumblers online and at its downtown flagship store. No other YETI logo Austin FC gear, but we expect more items in time for the holidays in 2020. The cool part about a partnership with the lifestyle brand is it could bring unique merchandise that other MLS teams don’t offer.
In October 2019, a wide range of new Austin FC apparel dropped in the MLS online store including polos, dress shirts, jackets, and pullovers. The following month Austin FC hats by New Era Cap were released for the first time.
After the August 2019 announcement of new club owners, the team offered two new t-shirts, with the slogans VERDE and LISTO—catchphrases made popular by Matthew McConaughey at the event.
Pro tip: keep an eye out for FREE swag from Austin FC as they ramp up operations and build excitement for the club in our community. They’ve done quick pop-up shop t-shirt and decal giveaways as well as booths at various events around town.
Austin FC Team Store Coming Soon
Once the stadium opens in 2021, there will be a team shop located on the North end with a wonderland of Austin FC gear. Some MLS clubs have multiple stores, so Austin FC could potentially have a shop downtown or other locations.
How About an Austin FC Jersey?
We’ll likely see our first of two Austin FC jerseys by late 2020. The odds of a jersey release this year increased greatly when YETI was announced as the official jersey sponsor.
In the meantime, fans are having fun designing concept kits for the club.
While we don’t know what the Austin FC jersey will look like, we do know they’ll be made by Adidas, the MLS jersey partner, and there will be two kits—home and away. MLS teams don’t have a third kit like clubs in Europe.
