Here are seven essential items for your next Austin FC watch party or tailgate.

1. Let the (Cornhole) Games Begin

As we previously mentioned, soccer is about community and family. Whether you’re staying at home or tailgating, having a portable Austin FC Cornhole Set will get the fun started with a little friendly competition before the big game begins. The set is made of 100% wood with convenient carrying handles and foldable legs for travel. Need a refresher on the rules — we got you.

2. Good Times For All With a uKeg

Whether you’re serving fresh juice or enough beer for your family and friends, every great tailgate needs a drinks keg. The Austin FC edition of the GrowlerWerks 64oz keg is a fantastic option for those in need of practicality and functionality. Featuring a helpful sight gauge, which enables you to see how much drink is left, and an easy-to-read pressure gauge.

If you’re opting for beer, the keg comes with a VPR cap which automatically regulates pressure to ensure your beer is optimally carbonated. Finally, the uKeg allows you to store fresh beer for up to two weeks, minimizing wastage while retaining all the goodness.

3. Keep a Grip on Austin FC

On those hot summer days in Austin, you want to make sure your drinks stay fresh as long as possible. Not only can you retain the freshness of a cold beer or soft drink, but you can also represent Austin FC while doing so. The WinCraft 12oz Stadium Can Cooler is a practical, affordable item that makes all the difference at your home or tailgate pre-game party. It’s easy to store, carry, and most importantly, it lets everyone know you’re representing Austin FC at all times.

4. It’s Grilling Season (Every Day in Texas)

The Texas birthright of charcoal grilling meets an Austin FC tailgate. The spring green Weber 22″ Master-Touch Charcoal Grill may not be exactly bright verde, but when your friends taste the brats and burgers off this grill there will be no complaints about this shade of green. This beauty holds up to 13 burgers made with a Weber burger press.

5. Let Your Green Flag Fly

What better way to demonstrate your pride in Austin than getting flags to put up at home on game days and in your section during tailgate parties. A WinCraft Single-Sided Flag lets your neighbors and community know that you are behind Austin FC all the way.

6. Sip in Style into Stoppage Time

A beautiful partnership was born when Austin FC partnered with YETI. Perfect for the outdoorsy ATX lifestyle, fans of both worlds benefit from drinkware and coolers featuring the intertwining oaks crest. This Verde Rambler 20 oz. tumbler is right at home in any tailgate or party, keeping your beverages hot or cold right through stoppage time.

7. Brave the Elements in Verde
