Austin FC has qualified for the 2023 Scotiabank Concacaf Champions League.
Austin FC qualifies as the highest-ranked US-based MLS club not already qualified in the 2022 MLS Supporters’ Shield Standings, and due to both 2022 MLS Cup Finalists (LAFC and Philadelphia Union) having already qualified for next year’s edition.
This will be Austin FC’s debut in the tournament, making them the 20th different team from the U.S. to participate in the SCCL.
Austin FC joins the likes of Atlanta United and Los Angeles FC as MLS teams that have qualified for the SCCL in their second season as a franchise.
With Austin FC’s qualification, the field of 16 teams for the 2023 SCCL is now complete.
