Photos by Diego Donamaria for Austin 101 Magazine. Austin FC 2023 C4 Energy Fan Experience was held at Q2 Stadium on a very hot (95 and humid) day June 12, 2023 in Austin, Texas. Fans won the experience by entering the online giveaway and there were about 100 or so winners of all ages and backgrounds, in addition to top players like Jon Gallagher and Nick Lima (who we got to interview as well). Lucky fans got to have soccer balls and jerseys signed by the players.
There were several coaches (in addition to the players) helping run drills on the field and it looked like an incredible workout and a fun time. Fans also got to experience a VIP tour with onsite parking- seeing the locker room was a highlight for many. This was so special and a once in a lifetime opportunity. They also got an amazing bunch of Austin FC swag worth hundreds of dollars and a gift card to spend at the store. There were plenty of snacks and drinks, and of course C4 energy drinks.
The stadium was lit up at night and it was a beautiful sight. We can’t wait to see what they do next year! Remember to enter to win next year!
