The construction team was announced earlier this week for the anticipated $240 million Major League Soccer stadium coming to Austin, Texas.

“Austin Commercial has been privileged to take part in a number of one-of-a-kind projects that have helped make Austin such a great city in which to live, work and play,” said Brad Brown, president of Austin Commercial.

“Because Austin is home to so many of our employee-owners, many of whom we expect will be among Austin FC’s biggest fans, we are excited about the benefits this new world-class stadium will bring. This project will create a significant number of local jobs for the community, and we are committed to utilizing local, small, minority and women-owned businesses throughout all phases of the project.”

The natural-grass, open-air stadium is also designed as an entertainment and multi-purpose space for the public.

Along with the team, the announcement also confirmed the price tag, which had risen from the initial $200 million estimate.

Team president Andy Loughnane said in an interview that a main item that drove up the price was an expansion to the roof, which will make the facility’s cover the second largest in terms of soccer venues behind Red Bull Arena, home of the New York Red Bulls.

PSV said that it’s working with Austin’s Office of Sustainability to achieve LEED Silver status, and estimates about 1,000 construction-related jobs will be created.

Though a specific timeline has not been announced, the structure is slated to open in March 2021.
