If you’re like us, you can’t have too much Austin FC in your life.
Luckily, we’ve found a few spots around town that can fill the void in-between matchdays. Consider this your personal guide to sightseeing all things Austin FC—from the obvious to the odd. Make a weekend of it to see them all or swing by one if you happen to be in the neighborhood.
Here’s five places every passionate Verde fan must visit in Austin.
1. Q2 stadium
10414 McKalla Place, Q2 Stadium
You don’t have to wait for an Austin FC game to visit Q2 Stadium.
Start by going on a stadium tour with Tours 4ATX at Q2—an all-access look inside the beautiful soccer venue (proceeds from your visit benefit the 4ATX Foundation). You can also shop in the two-story flagship Verde Store, check out the latest artist mural—a rotating piece of original artwork featured at the Northeast Zebra entrance, take a selfie with a 3-D Austin FC crest, walk the trail around the stadium, and hang out at Live Oak Park. Plenty of parking is available at the stadium when it’s not matchday.
Have more time on your hands? Visit one of the local breweries within walking distance or have a bite at The Domain across the street.
2. St. David’s Performance Center / The Pitch
700 Performance Dr., St. David’s Performance Center
Check out the future of Austin FC.
St. David’s Performance Center is the training home for the senior team and where Austin FC Academy practices and plays. While the first team’s practices are closed to the public, spectators can watch youth academy games open to the public at Parmer Field, a 1,200-seat stadium adjoining St. David’s Performance Center. In 2023, this venue will also be home to Austin FC’s new MLS NEXT Pro team—a lower-division squad that’s a bridge between the youth players in the Academy and the first team.
Food, fun, and fútbol. The Pitch Austin, a sports, dining, and entertainment district, is also located onsite. Bright verde-colored shipping containers offer food and beverage fare, including Ranger Burger, Taco Flats, Corner Kick Bar, Ga Roti Vietnamese, and Smoke Show BBQ. Fans can also watch soccer on its outdoor TV screens in the beer garden—check out their calendar for a full list of events.
3. OneTaco Taqueria’s altar to Austin FC
12233 Ranch Rd 620. Bldg C, OneTaco Anderson Mill
Pay homage to Austin FC at the Verde altar.
This is where you can find us before a big game. The two guys that started OneTaco are huge fans of Austin FC. So much so, they became an official partner of the club from the get-go.
In the same shopping center, you’ll also find Slacker Brewing Co. and a Texas Monthly Top 25 barbecue joint Interstellar BBQ, if you want another excuse to go.
4. Mural at 4th St. & I-35
807 E. 4th St. & I-35, Native Bar Wall
Gaze at the Austin FC mural.
Everything we love about the Verdes is depicted on this wall at 4th and I-35. Unveiled in 2022, fan favorites Djitte, Fagundez, and Driussi adorn the facade, along with Austin FC icons and sayings, including the “keep doubting us” phrase that went viral during the club’s 2022 season.
5. Verde Store on Congress Ave.
506 Congress Ave., Suite 101, Verde Store Downtown
Take a stroll downtown in your Verde.
The club’s second Verde Store is located on Congress Avenue, just blocks from the Texas State Capitol. A mini-version of its two-story flagship location at Q2 Stadium, this shop still has the jerseys, apparel, hats, and novelty items you’d expect, plus a rooftop deck open for community and events space.
