Major League Soccer team Austin FC has announced a multi-year partnership with SeatGeek to serve as its official ticketing partner ahead of its inaugural season in 2021.
The partnership – SeatGeek’s seventh with an MLS club – will also extend to third-party events at Austin FC’s planned $242m, 20,500-seat stadium. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Austin FC recently announced that it had received 35,000 season-ticket deposits, including an MLS record 30,000 in the first 24 hours of availability.
SeatGeek will also become the presenting partner of a virtual reality tour of the stadium – the Austin FC Shared VR Tour – which will be housed at the Austin FC Experience Center in close proximity to the stadium site.
Supporters who placed season-ticket deposits will be invited to see the VR Tour, as will potential sponsors.
Two Oak Ventures was recently named Austin FC’s parent company and ownership group.
