These are unique times we live in. The world in which we live is very different than the one it was last week, and thousands of Austinites are in limbo due to the closing of restaurant dining rooms. These businesses, however, are not all shut. Many of them are shifting their business models to keep things moving forward amidst these challenging times.

We’ve been fortunate to have received a lot of support from bars, breweries, and restaurants across the Austin area, so we’d like to connect you, the Austin soccer community, with ways you can safely help our soccer-friendly establishments. This is by no means an exhaustive list, and we’ll try to keep it updated over time.

If you or someone you know needs our help, please reach out to us via email — member.support@austinanthem.org.
