Austin FC will host the 2025 Major League Soccer All-Star Game at Q2 Stadium next summer, officials announced in May.

“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,” Major League Soccer Commissioner Don Garber said in an Austin FC news release.

The specifics

The date of the game and opponents will be announced at a later date, according to the release. The game will be broadcast via Apple TV to over 100 countries and regions.

This is the first time since 2010 that the MLS All-Star Game has been held in Texas and the first time the All-Star game is being held in Austin, according to the news release.

“It’s an honor for Austin FC to host our city’s first ever Major League All-Star Game,” said Anthony Precourt, Austin FC founder, majority owner and CEO.

Since its first game in 2021, every regular season and playoff match played at Q2 Stadium has sold out, according to the release, and the stadium holds the longest active streak of selling out games in MLS. Q2 Stadium has just over 20,000 seats.

What else?

A weeklong celebration will be held by MLS and the city of Austin at Austin venues, with events such as the MLS All-Star Skills Challenge and the MLS All-Star Concert, which will feature community programming and entertainment, according to the news release.

“We estimate hosting the MLS All-Star Game will generate a minimum of $20 million in economic impact, as there will be no shortage of festivities surrounding All-Star week that Austinites and visitors can enjoy,” said Drew Hays, executive director of the Austin Sports Commission.
