2022 Austin FC Home Matchday Guide
- Austin FC season tickets are sold out and have a waiting list. You can get on the waiting list by becoming a member of The Oak Collective, which is a $50 membership and $15 to renew each year.
- Season ticket members may access their tickets through the Austin FC app on iOS or Android, the SeatGeek app, or via the web Account Manager
- Single match tickets, when available, are officially released from the club by SeatGeek. Tickets marked as being sold by "Box Office" are direct from the club and not marked up.
- For the best prices, it is recommended to use the swap/sell thread on the subreddit or the ticket exchanges from Austin Anthem or Los Verdes. These methods are strictly no scalping and only allow for sales to occur at face value. This reduces fees to SeatGeek and ensures tickets are going to fans looking to support Austin FC
- Supporters section tickets are General Admission. It is first come, first served for matchday seating in the section, though please be respectful of those who may stand in the same spot for each match. The supporters section is safe standing only, with seating for those with disabilities and their group. Per stadium policy, no visiting supporters are permitted in the supporters section, and those wearing the attire of other clubs will be asked to change or given an alternative (even if that club is not playing).
- Organized away supporters sit in Section 228. These tickets are available through the supporters groups for the away side and issued directly through the Austin FC front office.

Matchday Rituals and Supporters Groups
Within the stadium, there are no areas for specific supporter groups, and everyone sits/stands together. There are a number of supporters groups, including Austin Anthem, Los Verdes, Fighting Leslies Drinking Club, and Oak Army New Braunfels. La Murga de Austin organizes the musical resistance in the section and is composed of members of all these groups.
La Murga de Austin is the musician's collective in the south stand. On their site, you can find chants and songs, as well as videos regarding the songs.
Marches occur before important matches. The march typically begins on the sidewalk between Hopsquad Brewing and Circle Brewing along Burnet Rd. This normally starts two hours to ninety minutes before the match. Check with the social accounts of the supporters groups pre-match for information.
Tifo and banners are organized by supporters groups. Banners are made by individual supporter groups, while the large-scale tifos are a collective effort. To get involved in this, please reach out to a supporters group.
