Precourt Sports Ventures (PSV), the investor-operator of Austin FC, has selected their construction manager and design partners for their 100%-privately financed 20,500-seat soccer park and stadium.
The Austin FC stadium is set to break ground in mid-September at McKalla Place.
Austin Commercial has been named as the construction manager, Gensler is the lead architect, and CAA ICON is the project manager and representative for PSV.
PSV has committed to privately funding the Austin FC stadium, which is now estimated to cost $240 million, as well as building a training facility, which brings PSV’s total investment in Austin, including the value of the team, to over $475 million.
Additionally, PSV will fulfill numerous community benefit pledges related to affordable housing, equity, and youth health/wellness.
PSV will also build and refurbish soccer fields in the area, and increase access to soccer programs, particularly for underserved communities.
