austin FC Q2 stadium is an authentic austin experience
The establishment of a professional sports league representing Austin, Texas is huge– the only one of its kind. Austin FC‘s Q2 Stadium is soccer-specific and was designed to appropriately accommodate its inhabitants and represent the city pridefully. Austin residents have already embraced the team and are ecstatic to have a local team to support and cheer for.
TBG was fortunate to have played a part in the stadium’s construction through designing its landscape architecture. The design prioritizes green infrastructure, including habitat creation, rainwater capture and reuse, pervious paving and drought-tolerant planting design. Additionally, connections throughout the site and to adjacent destinations, and site activation for vibrant daily use, special events, and match days.
The stadium is set to host its first official event on June 16, welcoming the US Women’s National Team who will compete against Nigeria. Three days later on the 19th Q2 will hold their first-ever home match at full-capacity.
An article by Forbes discusses Austin FC president Andy Loughnane’s hopes for the stadium, “We wanted a stadium inspired by Austin, with Austin textures, Austin tastes and Austin sounds.” TBG worked closely with Gensler architecture firm to lay the foundation for an immersive destination that successfully meets the standard of Loughnane.
