Austin FC advances to MLS Cup Conference Final vs LAFC

We keep going.

Sorry doubters, but Austin FC is in the Western Conference Final against Los Angeles FC.

The spotlight will shine on the Verde & Black once again when they visit the Banc in a nationally broadcast match on ABC (KVUE Austin) — 2 pm kick-off on Sunday, Oct. 30.

The game will also be televised in Spanish on ESPN3. A local radio broadcast can be found on KASE-FM (ALT 97.5) in English, as well as on TUDN Radio Austin (104.3-HD2, KLQB) in Spanish.

Austin is ONE WIN away from advancing to the MLS Cup Final.

The team flys to Los Angeles on Friday, Oct. 28. On Saturday, they’ll train in LA in preparation for the match on Sunday.

What if Austin FC wins the Conference Final?

Austin FC certainly has it in them to beat LAFC for a third time this season. El Tree easily trounced the Black & Gold by a score of 4-1 when the two teams last played during the regular season.

Diego Fagundez knows this team is LISTOS!

“We left with three points out of there. Then they came here, and we left with three points again. So, we want to do the same thing. We’re going to go there. Everybody’s going to be hungry. We know it’s going to be a tough game. They have big names, but we have the MVP.”

Diego Fagundez, Austin FC Midfielder

If ATX is victorious on Sunday, they face the winner of Philadelphia vs. New York City. A win by the Pigeons would put the MLS Cup final match at Q2 Stadium on Saturday, November 5.

Our brain is about to frigging explode just thinking about it.
