SCG Fields, LLC was contracted to furnish and install the playing field system. The specific scope of work items included laser grading the surface subgrade, installation of field drainage, automated irrigation system, playing field gravel, sand rootzone, Paspalum sod, and permanent goals and corner markers.
On June 16, 2021, after playing the opening two months of its inaugural Major League Soccer (MLS) season on the road, Austin FC opened up their new Q2 Stadium at the weekend in front of a sell-out crowd of 20,738.
Austin played their first eight matches away from home, and while Saturday’s debut outing at Q2 Stadium ended in a goalless draw against the San Jose Earthquakes, the home fans ensured it was a raucous homecoming.
Ahead of kick-off, supporters unveiled their first tifo featuring a host of Austin legends such as Stevie Ray Vaughan, Matthew McConaughey, Raul Salinas, Barbara Jordan, Leslie Cochran and Willie Nelson.
Don't miss your chance to get an inside look at Q2 Stadium. For a limited time, Tour Tuesday will allow fans the chance to see Austin's Biggest Backyard. Proceeds to benefit the important work led by @4ATXFoundation.— Q2 Stadium (@Q2Stadium) July 20, 2021
