Austin FC’s Q2 Stadium has been awarded hosting rights for Major League Soccer’s All-Star Game in 2025.

Q2 Stadium opened in 2021 and it will mark the first time the 20,738-capacity venue has staged the event. It will also be the first time since 2010 that the game has taken place in Texas.

Austin FC has sold out every match at Q2 Stadium since its introduction to the league. The club currently has the longest active sellout streak in MLS.

The date and opponent for the 2025 All-Star Game will be announced at a later date. Austin will host a week-long celebration for fans in venues across the city.

MLS commissioner Don Garber said: “We are thrilled to bring the 2025 MLS All-Star Game to Austin, a market known for its rich cultural and entertainment scene and world-class events.

“Austin has quickly become one of the top soccer markets in our country, selling out 60 consecutive Austin FC matches and hosting many marquee soccer events the past three years. We look forward to working alongside the entire Austin FC staff and local leaders to deliver an unforgettable and exciting MLS All-Star Week for everyone.”

Anthony Precourt, majority owner and chief executive of Austin FC, added: “It’s an honour for Austin FC to host our city’s first ever major league All-Star Game.

“Austin is a world-class soccer city, our fans are amazing, and the culture that has been established here in a short amount of time is a testament to our community’s passion for the game. This is a special day and we’re excited to welcome the league’s best to Q2 Stadium in 2025.”

This year’s MLS All-Star Game will take place on July 24 at Lower.com Field, home of Columbus Crew. The MLS All-Stars will take on a team of Liga MX All-Stars.

Q2 Stadium also hosted matches at the 2021 CONCACAF Gold Cup and qualifiers for the 2022 FIFA World Cup. It will also be a host venue during this summer’s Copa América.
