Crew SC Has Already Hired Austin PR Firm

Although Anthony Precourt stated that the Crew SC would consider remaining in Columbus if a new stadium could be built, it seems that talks in Austin are more than just hypothetical.

The movement to bring the MLS to Austin isn’t a new one. But with the news breaking this morning of Crew SC’s potential, and let’s face it, probable departure, Austin locals took to social media to share their excitement.

Twitter account @mls2atx was started back in August 2017. With just 66 followers, it didn’t gain much traction until today’s announcement.

Although any soccer fan can understand the desire to bring an MLS team to your hometown, it should be noted that MLS2ATX, this “grassroots campaign”, is fully owned and funded by Precourt Sports Ventures, the owners of Crew SC.
