The watch party is first come, first served, and doors will open at 5:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 24. The venue will have live music and masks are required, the club said.
Austin FC's first official watch party was held at the Long Center. It was free to the public, but only open to 1,000 fans due to current COVID-19 safety protocols. Twenty minutes after Austin FC tweeted the registration link, the sign-up was closed.
The excitement surrounding the team was felt in other venues, too. KVUE swung by watch parties hosted by supporter groups at local breweries, Hopsquad Brewing and Circle Brewing in North Austin.
Austin Anthem plans to use Circle Brewing as its home base throughout the season, according to organizer Jorge Chavez. Los Verdes has partnered with Hopsquad for most of the last year, even helping provide and enshrine the shovels from the groundbreaking of Q2 Stadium in the brewery.
Austin FC lost its inaugural match to LAFC, 2-0, but fans will watch all over the city on April 24, hoping to witness the club's first win. Austin FC will kick off against Colorado Rapids at 8 p.m. CST.
