“Building a long-term partnership for stadium naming rights with an Austin-based company that wants to use this platform to give back to the community was the club’s top priority,” said Andy Loughnane, president of Austin FC, in a press release. “Q2 Stadium is the first and only major league venue in Austin. Austin FC is extremely proud to begin our MLS journey with Q2 as their partner and Q2 Stadium as their home ground.”
