If you’ve been living under a rock, the United States Women’s National Team are the 2019 Women’s World Cup Champions. Megan Rapinoe was an absolute beast the entire World Cup and again came up huge yesterday with a PK in the second half to help take down the Netherlands 2-0.
When I was looking through social media during the game though, it was not just USWNT that was making rounds, my feed was also dominated by Austin FC out in full force at Haymaker. When you see clips like the one above and below, you realize just how much Austin FC is going to be loved here. The grassroots marketing they are doing to help build a community of fans is unbelievable and having this passionate of a base almost two years before they are even scheduled to play a game is fucking awesome. To me, it’s becoming more and more obvious that Austin FC has the potential to one day overtake the Longhorns as Austin’s crowned jewel.
These ladies are definitely not hurting the grassroots campaign.
