AUSTIN (KXAN) — The future of Major League Soccer in Austin looks like it’s becoming the present.

MLS and Austin FC announced Wednesday they will host a celebration to make a “historic declaration” Jan. 15 at the Rustic Tap on West Sixth Street in Austin.

MLS Commissioner Don Garber, Austin FC Chairman/CEO Anthony Precourt and Austin Mayor Steve Adler will be speaking at the event.

This announcement will come just a week after Columbus Crew SC in Ohio introduces the official acquisition and new ownership of the team, which includes Cleveland Browns owner Jimmy Haslam.

Earlier in January, Austin FC announced Andy Loughnane will be the club’s president. Loughnane previously worked as the Crew’s President of Business Operations.
