AUSTIN, Texas — Austin FC broke an MLS record on Wednesday for the most season ticket membership deposits in a single day, according to the organization.
Austin FC opened up their season ticket membership deposits on Wednesday and saw the numbers take off. On Thursday, the club said it has secured deposits totaling over 30,000 seats
“This evening we celebrate the thousands upon thousands of Austin supporters who stepped forward with season ticket membership deposits for Austin FC’s inaugural season in 2021,” said Andy Loughnane, president of Austin FC. “Today’s record-setting deposit results reinforce the strength of the market, the community’s love for the sport, and the pent-up demand for major league sports in Austin. We are incredibly grateful for those who placed deposits on this historic day.”
Austin FC's website apparently crashed Wednesday morning due to high volumes of web traffic as people rushed to place their membership deposits.
If you haven't placed a membership deposit for season tickets and would like to, you can still do so by calling their number at 512-572-8932, visiting their office near The Domain or going to their website at www.AustinFC.com.
“With the overwhelming demand today for Season Ticket Membership Deposits, we encourage people to sign up sooner rather than later,” said Loughnane. “Those who are unable to purchase season tickets for the inaugural season as a result of their position in line will be placed on a priority waitlist for future seasons and will enjoy exclusive individual-match benefits that come with placing a membership deposit.”

Maximum capacity at the stadium is 20,500.
