United Soccer League returning to Austin

The United Soccer League is returning to Austin for the 2019 soccer season. 

Along with the return comes a brand new venue for the club's home at the Circuit of The Americas. COTA Chairman Bobby Epstein will lead the organization. 

“I’m excited to help bring professional soccer back to Austin and want to thank the USL for helping in the process to secure a suitable venue to host a high-level soccer experience for our fans,” Epstein said. “Preparations for kickoff in 2019 are already underway, and I look forward to revealing more information about the club in the coming future.”

COTA is already home to the Formula One United States Grand Prix, ESPN's Summer X Games 2014-2016, the MotoGP Red Bull Grand Prix of the Americas and other global races. The FC Barcelona training academy is also set to open at COTA this summer.
