Many fans have traveled to the Austin FC road games this season, but not many have been to them all!

“The hype just keeps me going, and this community of supporters has been amazing, both Verdes and more about the band. The hype is real,” said Desai. “The adrenaline to just see the team on the field and watch them play, it just keeps me going.”

After chasing the team on the road, Desai said she’s looking forward to Saturday’s game at home.
