Two Oak Ventures, the ownership group of the Austin FC soccer team, announced Nov. 13 that it plans to build a $45 million training facility at the mixed-use Parmer Innovation Center, a 300-acre campus under development in Northeast Austin.

“St. David’s Performance Center will be a world-class facility that will be integral to Austin FC realizing its full ambition as a soccer club,” said Anthony Precourt, majority owner and chief executive officer of Two Oak Ventures and Austin FC, in a news release. “This is a significant investment in our team, both at a senior level and for Austin FC Academy, as it is where the first team will train each day just minutes away from our new stadium.”

The 23-acre complex, called the St. David’s Performance Center after its partnership with St. David’s HealthCare, will be located at 13011-D McCallen Pass, Austin, less than 15 minutes away from the Austin FC soccer stadium that broke ground in September at 10414 McKalla Place in North Austin.

“St. David’s HealthCare is dedicated to the health and wellness of the Austin community—both inside the walls of our hospitals and beyond—and we are committed to serving as a true partner to Austin FC,” St. David’s President and CEO David Huffstutler said in a news release. “With the new St. David’s Performance Center, we will bring the same exceptional level of care provided in our facilities to Austin FC, allowing us to optimize each player’s potential.”

The Parmer Innovation Center is a planned development off Parmer Lane east of I-35 that will include office buildings, an entertainment district anchored by a pond, an amphitheater, an incubator and retail space. Existing tenants at Parmer include 3M, General Motors and The Home Depot.


“With the addition of Austin FC, Parmer Austin will provide an unparalleled amenity experience for tenants and the community alike to enjoy an Austin FC Academy game, visit a brewpub, eat at a local restaurant, sit by the 11-acre pond or play in a pickup game of soccer on the public field,” said Matthew Schwab, managing director of Karlin Real Estate. “It’s exciting to see our vision for the Parmer Innovation Center as a destination development come to life.”

The new training facility will be located adjacent to the Parmer Pond and include four full-sized soccer fields, three of which will be natural grass. One artificial turf field will include spectator stands, according to a news release. The facility will provide training space for both the Austin FC team as well as its Academy teams for youth players.

Additionally, Two Oak Ventures is planning to build a 30,000-square-foot single-story building for its professional and Academy players as well as operations and technical staff. Amenities will include cardio and physio equipment, recovery rooms, and water therapy and cryogenics.

Two Oak Ventures stated in the release that it plans to open the St. David’s Performance Center in spring 2021, which is when Austin FC will first take the field at its new $250 million stadium.
