A few years back I wrote about why the Chargers of Los Angeles will not work. While the football has been pretty good. Ok, the Fantasy Football has been really good. I’m taking a short-term victory lap as the Chargers are expected to lose more money than originally forecast.
But just so folks out there don’t think I’m just a hater, I’m going to tell you why Austin FC will work.
- Austin has excellent soccer demographics
- It’s the city’s first professional sports team.
- The city’s influx of coastal migrants has it clamoring for professional relevance.
- SXSW, ACL are just previews for what home games can look like.
I’ll dig into each of these factors and add to them over time.
