AUSTIN (KXAN) — Austin FC arrived back in Austin in the early Sunday morning hours, following their loss to LAFC in the franchise’s first-ever regular season match.
After having some time to reflect on the match, which was a 2-0 loss to LAFC, and the big picture of the historic day, head coach Josh Wolff spoke with KXAN.
“We’re learning a lot about ourselves, we’re learning a lot about where we’re at as a team and what we’ve been working on for the last six or seven weeks,” Wolff said. “What I see in the aftermath of the game, the disappointment, that’s when I come in and say ‘guys, remember what this is, it’s your first game ever as a club.”
The other aspect to this historic day is what was going on back in Austin. Thousands of fans attended watch parties around Austin for the match.
“We had video of our family before the game to strike an emotional cord, but there was plenty of videos of fans that strike an emotional cord, we need to utilize [it],” Wolff said.
It won’t be until June 19 before everyone gets to see what Q2 Stadium will look like with a sea of green-clad fans. Austin FC’s next stop during this seven-game road trip is at Colorado Saturday at 8 p.m. You can watch on KNVA, The CW Austin.
