The hottest ticket in town: Austin FC MLS Cup Playoffs

Austin FC achieved the near impossible in 2022. In its second year of existence, the club clinched an MLS Cup Playoff spot. An impressive feat from Wolff and Co. considering Verde & Black ended last season at the bottom of the table.

The accolades don’t stop there. To the delight of fans, Austin secured Round 1 of the Playoffs at the fortress, Q2 Stadium, thanks to a tie against Nashville on Sept. 17.

When will Austin FC host its first Playoff game?

We won’t know the exact date and time of ATXFC’s first playoff game until the regular season ends on October 9.

But, it will occur on one of three days set aside for the first round of MLS Cup Playoffs: Saturday, Oct. 15; Sunday, Oct. 16; and Monday, Oct. 17. There will be two games each day.

How do I get Austin FC Playoff tickets?

Tickets will be released to fans in three waves.

Season ticket holders get the first shot. This group holds about 15,000 seats and are automatically opted in to purchase their same regular season seats for home playoff matches (through the conference finals).

That means season ticket holders don’t need to do anything and they’ll automatically get charged on Sept. 26 for the seats in SeatGeek.

Oak Collective Waitlist Members are up next. For a $50 enrollment fee, they get a crack at pre-sale tickets on Thursday, Sept. 29 at noon (CT). Members will need to login to their SeatGeek account and click the offers tab to purchase their seats.

With 20,000 waitlist members, we expect it to be a madhouse, just like that glorious, chaotic day inaugural season tickets were released.

Finally, remaining tickets go on sale to the general public at 10am (CT) on Sept. 30.

Last but not least, tickets are for sale in SeatGeek—just be prepared to pay. More season ticket holders and waitlist members will end up selling the tickets they purchased leading up to the game.

When will tickets be in my SeatGeek account?

Once you’ve made the purchase, the first round playoff tickets will show up in your Austin FC SeatGeek account as soon as Oct. 1⁠. It’s before the regular season has ended so we still won’t know the opponent, day, or time of the game.

YETI Playoff Match Giveaway

At the club’s historic first-ever playoff match, Austin FC founding partner YETI will give away 10,000 special edition YETI RAMBLER 10oz tumblers. Gates will open two hours prior to kickoff (30 minutes earlier than for regular season matches) to encourage fans to be in their seats by kickoff.

The YETI tumbler will have the Austin FC badge along with the 2022 MLS Cup Playoffs emblem.
