City Council to Austin: McKalla Place is a Go for Soccer

The Austin City Council voted at a recent meeting to authorize the negotiation and execution of agreements with Precourt Sports Ventures (PSV) to build and lease a $200-million major league soccer stadium at McKalla Place. The go-ahead means that the professional stadium on the 24-acre city-owned site south of The Domain won’t need to come back to the council. A final lease and development agreement are still pending approval between the city and PSV.

The process between moving the Columbus Crew from Columbus, OH to a space in Austin has been a long and drawn-out one, with delays more common than resolutions. First, was the discussion about where the team would play. Then, once PSV targeted McKalla Place, near Burnet Road and Braker Lane, council members proposed 20 amendments to the original deal. Meanwhile, developers proposed other uses for the McKalla site, which is owned by the city.

Ultimately, the measure passed 7-4.
