How to watch: Schedule, time for Austin FC's first home game

AUSTIN (KXAN) — The wait is finally over. Austin FC will play its first game at the new Q2 Stadium Saturday night.

Austin FC will christen its new home in front of a sellout crowd at the north Austin stadium against the San Jose Earthquakes. Years of preparation for local and franchise leaders will culminate in one special night as Austin officially welcomes its first professional sports franchise to the city.

Austin FC is in search of its first win in seven weeks after a grueling eight-game road trip to start the season. However, Austin’s last two matches have resulted in points with back-to-back draws at Seattle and Kansas City.

Verde’s road trip should be considered a success in the standings. Austin FC has eight points out of a possible 24, but the key to being a playoff contender is averaging a point per road game. ATX FC is right on track with eight points in eight games away from Q2 Stadium.

The general public got its first look at the stadium Wednesday when the U.S Women’s National Team finished out a Texas exhibition tour with a 2-0 win against Nigeria ahead of the Tokyo Olympics.

Saturday’s game will air live on The CW Austin at 8 p.m.
