Austin Parks Foundation kicks off new soccer effort

Friday, November 8, 2019 by Chad Swiatecki

The Austin Parks Foundation has entered into a partnership with 4ATX, the philanthropic arm of the Austin FC professional soccer club, to have soccer nets installed at 10 soccer fields around Austin beginning late this year. The partnership is part of the team’s requirement by the city to provide access to soccer for youth throughout the city, which was among the conditions included in the agreement to provide city land as the site for an under-construction 21,000-seat stadium in North Austin. The initial set of nets will be installed at Tillery Fields, Edward Rendon Sr. Park at Festival Beach and the Delwood Sports Complex in Bartholomew District Park. Backup nets for each site will also be provided as part of the partnership, which will be expanded in coming years. A press release announcing the partnership didn’t specify when installation will be completed at all 10 initial sites.
