Austin may court downtown stadium, Major League Soccer

Austin’s soccer fans may be on a long, potentially bumpy road to a downtown sports stadium and a Major League Soccer franchise, thanks to a new push by local organizers and city officials.

The piqued interest is due to a recent push by local organizers Austin FC LLC and local developer Michael Wilt, according to reports in the Austin Chronicle. At City Hall, Mayor Pro Tem Sheryl Cole is sponsoring a resolution that would direct the city to look into how economically feasible a Major League Soccer franchise would be in Austin as well as begin looking at locations for a stadium.
