Major League Soccer season is in full swing and Austin soccer fans have been waiting for this moment since the announcement of a new Major League Soccer stadium almost three years ago. In 2019, construction began so did the anticipation with supporter groups Austin Anthem and Los Verdes fueling the excitement. Earlier this month, Austin FC announced official Bar Partners, dubbed the Pub Club, that includes several of our previous soccer viewing picks.
As always, our picks include spots that met these three criteria:
Enthusiasm for the game. These folks love soccer and it’s evident by the crowds they draw and the electric atmosphere during the game. No one wants to be the only one cheering with a painted face.
Play matches with the sound on. Nothing worse than staring at an intense game while DJ music pumping all around you.
Serves craft beer. This one does not require an explanation.
