Major League Soccer completed its expansion period last week, with numerous new cities acquiring their respective football club. Austin FC was one of the first teams acquired throughout the expansion period, with their first matchup now being played until 2021. However, this hasn’t stopped team executives or owners from creating buzz around the Texas-based football club. This is mainly because of Matthew McConaughey, who is one of the co-owners of Austin FC. The infamous Hollywood Actor often can be found at sporting events like Soccer or Formula One.
When appearing at Chelsea’s Playoff Matchup, he began speaking with reporters on Austin FC. He noted that they’ve acquired their general manager and that the stadium has already started being developed. Matthew mentioned that this stadium would seat 22 thousand fans, with future players already being contacted by team representatives. Many have begun speculating that McConaughey was looking for potential players at this matchup, where he was seen speaking with Christian Pulisic and Callum Hudson-Odio. Acquiring these two players would immediately make Austin FC a dominating force in MLS.
Matthew McConaughey expressed that he hopes the trend for American Players joining European Leagues will continue to grow. He emphasized that this shows MLS Academies are beginning to create formidable players, with youth soccer in the United States increasing by 10% annually. However, Matthew also expressed his commitment to Austin FC and has created a ten-year plan. The chances that Callum Hudson-Odio is moving to the Texas-based football club is growing, with his contract slated to end on December 31st, 2020. However, Christian Pulisic will most likely remain in the Premier League going forward.
This superstar mentioned how he has travelled the entire globe and that football can be found at any corner. This has led sports analysts to believe that Matthew McConaughey is seeking new talent in Asia, Europe, Australia, and the Middle East. Subsequently, a championship team could be created in their premiere year in Major League Soccer. The actor expressed that he believes in youth soccer and plans to develop numerous organizations worldwide, with the assistance of Austin FC, to promote this level of the sport. Subsequently, new talent that nobody would’ve anticipated could come in fifteen years.
None of the representatives with Austin FC, Team Owners, or Coaching Staff has provided any details of which official players there looking for in 2021. Any of the star players in MLS or the Premier League will immediately be taken into consideration. Will inform our readers when additional details are released.
