The club will play at a newly constructed stadium on the grounds of the
Circuit of the Americas race track, to be located between the amphitheater and the grand plaza.
Bobby Epstein, chairman of the Circuit of the Americas, has led the ownership group after becoming majority owner 2017. He is currently involved in a public relations battle with
Anthony Precourt who has been sanctioned by
Major League Soccer to create a franchise in Austin after selling his stake amid controversy in the
Columbus Crew. Epstein hopes to build up his franchise fan base and use public perception and city government to keep Precourt from founding a team, perhaps purchasing the franchise rights himself. Epstein has been criticized for his tactics, including hiring petition campaigners who are accused of lying to the public.
