2019 Women’s World Cup Watch Parties, Hosted By the Lady Birds of Austin Anthem
It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year. The time of year when barbecues are lit up, pool waterfalls are flowing, and Austin Beerworks unleashes the might of the La Verdad Mexican Lager upon our fair city.
No, we’re not talking about summer. At least, we’re not talking only about summer.
It’s time for the WORLD. FLIPPIN. CUP.
And this time, the United States is not only in it, but we’ve got a trophy to defend. The United States Women’s National Team, unquestionably the dominant force in the sport, looks to add a fourth World Cup to the trophy case this year in France.
With Austin being a soccer town (even more officially than it was last year), the Lady Birds of Austin Anthem, the women’s interest group of our organization, will be hosting watch parties throughout the tournament. Four watch parties, to be exact, across two Easy Tiger locations.
All events are free, open to the public, and friendly for all ages.
Not a member of Austin Anthem? There’s no need to be a member to enjoy our watch parties, but you’d be a lot cooler if you did.
Giveaways for All Watch Parties
We’re pretty sure we’re cool enough to hang with, but to make us even cooler, we’ll have some sweet giveaways and prizes.
Just by being there, you’ll get a DOOR PRIZE ticket, where we’ll give away Austin FC coolness, such as a hat, scarves, and coffee cups, Yeti Ramblers, and Lady Bird apparel.
At each event, we’ll be collecting donations for Safe Alliance of Austin, an advocacy, crisis, and intervention center for victims of domestic violence, sexual abuse, and child abuse.
Donations will get you special AWESOME DONOR TICKETS. Those AWESOME DONOR TICKETS will make you eligible for Daily Prizes and Grand Prizes.
The following DAILY PRIZES will be up for grabs at each event, but you’re going to have to be there to win:
- Tito’s goodies, including the famous vodka, hats, and scarves
- Yeti swag, which includes ramblers, shirts, and stickers
- USA jerseys. Yeah you read that right.
The GRAND PRIZES will be drawn at the conclusion of the final, and you don’t need to be present to win these. But it would be a lot cooler if you did.
- Tito’s branded Traeger tailgate grill
- Yeti 65 cooler filled with all things Austin
- Austin FC and Austin Lady Birds will give one lucky fan the opportunity to be among the first to visit the Austin FC Experience Center, an educational & visual experience about Major League Soccer, our club, and our new stadium.
Of course, each event will also have Austin Anthem swag for sale (thinkin’ a new t-shirt?) and stickers aplenty. We’ve got some new Pride ones in addition to the Lady Birds stickers, so you can adorn ALL THE THINGS.
