There’s not many things Austin is missing, but it’s never had a proper soccer stadium. That is till now, with the new stadium scheduled to open in March.

Today, we’re joined by President of the Los Verdes Club Gaby Navarro and Co-Founder Andrew Urban, to discuss what the future for soccer in Austin looks like. 

With any great soccer team, you need a great club behind them to cheer them on. Los Verdes ATX is an independent supporters group of Austin FC with the aim to make the games as fun as possible. 

We talk about how they set up the club and the stadium, the different projects the club is involved with, and the benefits there are to being a member of the club.

I’m already a member, and as soon as this pandemic calms down I can’t wait to be at the stadium with all the other fans…

“I like tacos on game day because you have to save room for beer.” – Andrew Urban
