Crew owner pro­motes team’s move to Austin

Calgary Herald - - SPORTS -

Austin, Texas doesn’t have a Ma­jor League Soc­cer team just yet, but the club al­ready has a name, a logo and team colours. Anthony Pre­court, who owns the Columbus Crew and wants to move his team to Austin by next sea­son, and his Pre­court Sports Ven­tures own­er­ship group un­veiled the Austin FC name and its green, black and white logo on Wed­nes­day. The team name had al­ready been reg­is­tered by MLS in 2017. City council voted last week to move ahead with a sta­dium plan for a $200-mil­lion, 20,000-seat fa­cil­ity that will be pri­vately fi­nanced and built on city land. Pre­court still faces a law­suit in Ohio that seeks to keep the team in Columbus.
