MLS in Austin - Official Statement

Nov 4th 2017
Club


This year, Lonestar Soccer Club’s mission and vision was updated to reflect the future of the club, our players, and the continued growth of our organization:

Mission

To the best youth soccer club in the nation while developing good people.

Vision

To bring our brand of soccer to every part of Central Texas.

Recently, news broke of a potential relocation by the Major League Soccer Club, Columbus Crew SC, to Austin, Texas. The efforts by the Columbus Crew SC leadership to accomplish this goal are on parallel course with our mission and vision of bringing high-level soccer to families throughout Central Texas. This move is an exciting and long-awaited next step for the membership of the club, our players, and the population of Austin as a whole.

Consequently, Lonestar Soccer Club wholly and proudly supports the efforts to bring Major League Soccer (MLS) to Austin via the proposed franchise relocation of Columbus Crew SC. With more than 7,500 active players participating in the most successful youth soccer club in Austin, the MLS opportunity represents a model pathway towards the pinnacle of professional American soccer for our players who aspire to reach the next level.

To affirm our support, Lonestar Soccer invites our players and members to a rally at City Hall to join the grassroots organization MLS2ATX in voicing the city’s support for a long-awaited solution to professional soccer in Austin.

Thursday, November 9th at 6:00pm - Austin City Hall

Please strongly consider making an appearance and wearing your Lonestar gear to help maximize our impact on the discussions surrounding the move!

We Are Lonestar!
