AUSTIN (KXAN) — Tickets for the U.S. Women’s National Team’s game against Nigeria on June 16 will go on sale to the general public on Saturday, May 29 at 10 a.m. with pre-sales starting on Tuesday, May 25 at 10 a.m.
Based on the popularity of soccer in Austin right now, the chance to see the USWNT, and the opportunity to see the first soccer game at the brand new Q2 Stadium, the game is expected to sell out.
“We are extremely excited for U.S. Women’s National Team to play the first soccer match at Austin FC’s Q2 Stadium,” USWNT head coach Vlatko Andonovski said in a statement. “The development of Austin FC has been impressive and fun to watch, and the way the community has embraced the Club is inspiring. We can’t wait to play there and feel that energy.”

The game in Austin is part of the 2021 WNT Summer Series, which features the USA, Portugal, Jamaica and Nigeria in five round robin games. The other four games will be played at BBVA Stadium in Houston.
“We are both thrilled and honored that the first-ever match at Q2 Stadium will feature the four-time FIFA World Champions,” Austin FC President Andy Loughnane also said in the statement. “Hosting the USWNT at Q2 Stadium speaks to the world-class nature of our city, our facilities, and the popularity of the sport in our region.”
There’s no word yet exactly how many fans will be in attendance for the game. The USWNT said, “there will be reserved seating only, general admission will not be allowed.”
The USWNT announcement came on the same day that Austin FC and Austin Public Health announced that the first Austin FC home game would be at 100% capacity.
ESPN2 will televise the game on June 16 at 8 p.m.
