Austin FC and the Club’s sustainability partner YETI launch GO VERDE! Week, a platform highlighting series of sustainability initiatives. Through the launch of our annual GO VERDE! Week, we hope to encourage fans to join us in protecting and promoting Austin’s green spaces, which are central to making our city vibrant and full of life. This platform aligns both with Major League Soccer’s Greener Goals week and Global Earth Day.
Austin FC’s home Q2 Stadium received LEED Gold certification from the U.S. Green Building Council in November 2021 for the commitment to sustainability undertaken in the stadium’s construction and design. The stadium features a number of innovative sustainability efforts, including electric vehicle charging stations, waste-diverting Ecostations around the concourse and club levels,140 solar panels on its southern roof, and a policy which allows fans to bring in an empty 30-ounce reusable vessel and fill it up with free water, eliminating the need for single-use plastic bottles.
