On Sunday, April 24, members of the Austin FC Unified Team gathered at St. David’s Performance Center, the world-class training facility of the Austin FC First Team and Academy, for signing day activities and their first practice together.

Austin FC President Andy Loughnane, as well as midfielder Felipe Martins, goalkeeper Damian Las, and defender Charlie Asensio were all in attendance to congratulate the athletes. The Club’s English language play-by-play commentator Adrian Healey was on hand to MC the event.

The Unified Team athletes, who range in age from 16 to 25, took signing photos in front of an Austin FC backdrop inside the team’s facility. They then headed out to Parmer Field for a training session as they prepare to face the FC Dallas Unified Team on June 25, the same day the two clubs’ First Teams will play at Q2 Stadium.
