AUSTIN, TEXAS — Just hours after Austin FC started taking deposits for season tickets, the team set a record for the largest number of membership deposits ever placed in a single day in the history of Major League Soccer.
- Thousands put deposits on season tickets
- Website crashed due to traffic
- Still time to reserve your spot
“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,” Andy Loughnane, president of Austin FC, said. “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.”

General seating and supporter section membership deposits are $50 per account. Premium seating membership deposits are $100 per account. Up to eight seats can be reserved per account.
Deposits can still be placed online with a valid credit card on the Austin FC website, over the phone at 512-572-8932, and in-person at Austin FC’s office at 1835-A Kramer Lane, Suite 600 during business hours or at various off-site locations throughout Austin in which the dates and times will be announced via Club social. Cash deposits will be accepted in-person.
A fully refundable season ticket membership deposit will establish a position in line to select seats for each account of record.
“With the overwhelming demand today for Season Ticket Membership Deposits, we encourage people to sign up sooner rather than later,” Loughnane said. “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.”
There was so much interest in season tickets for Austin FC that the website crashed. The team started taking deposits to snag a spot for the tickets at 10 a.m.
