We’ve created a list of Austin FC supporters groups (SGs).
Even before a single match has been played, there are already multiple SGs for the club.
If you purchased seats (memberships) in the Supporters Section of the stadium, then you’ll definitely want to join one, or several, of the groups described below.
There’s no limit to the number of SGs you can join.
Each supporter group has its own identity and mission, so it’s up to you to find one that fits best. Check out the links below to explore the individual groups, visit their social media, and hang out with them in-person (or virtually) at their next event.
Make note that a single supporters group may encompass affiliate or subgroups, each centered around its own specific interests or geographic location. An example is LAFC’s 3252, which is a union of eight independent groups.
What about Match Day?
On game days, SGs come alive for 90+ minutes. It’s one of the most unique fan experiences in all of sports.
Austin FC gives you a taste of what to expect in the Supporters Section at the stadium as a Supporter Member.
Supporters will stand, chant, and sing throughout each match.
Supporters will enhance the matchday experience with TIFO, flags, smoke, and other matchday elements.
The club’s description of this AWESOME experience is a little dry, but you get the point.
Beyond match day, these groups do much, much more to be involved in the community. Another good reason to check out their website or social media is to see what these SGs do to support your community.
In addition, official supporters groups typically have representatives that collaborate with the club regularly to provide fan input, arrange ticket and seat allocations, and resolve issues. Austin FC may create a formal council or board of fans that involves the leaders of the various independent supporters groups.
Supporters Section in the Stadium
Austin FC encourages anyone in this section to join a supporters group.
The South end of Austin FC stadium is the designated supporters section (101-105 below). Here fans stand shoulder-to-shoulder in safe standing areas, with fold-up seats and safety railing—likely to be similar to LAFC’s supporter section (a prior project of Austin FC’s architecture firm Gensler).
Don’t worry, if you want to join an SG it doesn’t obligate you to sit in the Supporters Section.
Already Austin FC boasts many passionate and creative independent supporter groups. To our knowledge, the club hasn’t yet named official supporter groups (usually listed as such on the club’s website).
Descriptions of the following groups were obtained from the SG’s websites, social media, or press releases.
Austin Anthem is the independent supporters group for Austin FC, Austin’s Major League Soccer franchise, and a member of the Independent Supporters Council.
