Q2 Stadium

The new Q2 Stadium, home of the Austin FC Major League Soccer team, provides the best-in-class experience for fans, guests and players. Premium spaces, from suites to club lounges, are designed to be authentically Austin and pushes the benchmark for what sports venues can be and how they can engage the community. Equally important is the commanding, yet integrated presence of the stadium within the surrounding neighborhood that embraces a local and environmentally-conscious character. Capitalizing on the natural landscape, cultural heritage and tech-forward growth of Austin, Texas, Q2 Stadium becomes a 365-day destination.

Ample premium spaces, from clubs and suites to terraces, craft an authentically Austin experience for game day while offering spectacular views of the game, as well as local, premium food and beverage offerings. The color palette and mood are inspired by the local agricultural and industrial influences of Austin: industrial iron, barnwood-inspired millwork and light fixtures reminiscent of musical instruments that add warmth to the spaces and reflect the city’s rustic, outdoor music venue scene; while velvet drapery, leather furniture and brass accents reflect an overall sophisticated, speakeasy vibe to Q2 Stadium.

The speakeasy design of the Q2 Club on the ground level is influenced by Austin's music scene and iconic music venues. Fans and guests are greeted by a receptionist and marquee sign displaying the evening's event. The curated artwork displays images of Austin FC's journey and celebrates the city's rich music history. The end of the corridor is activated with a large neon sign of the Q2 Club, creating the perfect photo backdrop. Located on the main level, the Lexus Club serves as a multi-functional, all-inclusive space to host events such as conferences, weddings and private parties. The Club is footsteps away for a premium viewing experience. At the Captain Morgan Club and Loge, fans will find an indoor-outdoor space that is accessible to anyone with a match ticket after the final whistle. The space includes a two-tiered outdoor patio and features all-inclusive food and beverage for club members. The Captain Morgan Club's concept and vibe are influenced by Austin's outdoor lifestyle, rugged barn-like spaces and smokehouse culture.

Located on the 400 level terrace, The Porch provides beer, wine, spirits and food available for purchase, where guests can also experience breathtaking panoramic views of the stadium. The space's concept provides a more residential and backyard feel: comfy sofas and expansive lounge groupings ignite a more relaxed vibe. The design concept of the space, from furniture and lighting touches, was inspired by the charming front porches seen locally in Texas. A west-facing colorful backdrop of assorted "Verde" sunshade vertical louvers to mitigate afternoon and evening sun, creating an intimate experience for patrons and offering incredible views and vantage point to the pitch. The Beer Hall’s concept and vibe are influenced by Austin's vintage gas stations, giving a fresh and modern take to the beer hall atmosphere. Foosball and shuffleboard tables at the entry provide a game-style environment where fans and guests can connect.
