Songs, Chants, & Cheers
On January 15, 2019, at the Announcement making Austin FC officially the 27th team of Major League Soccer, Austin Anthem debuted the first club chants, some already becoming standards like: "Alright, Alright, Alright" and "Dale Dale Austin." The event also marked the debut of our now-iconic Austin FC bombo. These songs were the first of many – for all supporters – and we look forward to singing these and many more in the stands with y'all.
Music is Austin
One of the reasons we picked "Austin Anthem" to represent the Supporters Group for all of Austin was that communal connection to music. We are collectively the "Song of Our City." We look forward to hearing many different sounds, songs, and chants and are actively planning to make sure that happens. It doesn't matter if you can't sing or never have played an instrument. If you're passionate, we'll help take care of the rest.
If want to help us build the set lists and create music for match day along with other supporters, please join our Organizational Team, or just drop us a note. We'll be holding socially-distanced song, chant, and cheer workshops regularly in 2021.
We've been working with partners to ensure we have watch locations available to supporters all over the Austin area. With the multi-year lead-up to 2021, we've gotten really good at watch parties and making sure the club feels the love – no matter where they are playing the match.
On the road
Wherever in North America our team is, you'll find us there. Away travel information such as tickets, hotel blocks, caravans, and more are communicated by email to members. Miss out on one? Contact us and we'll get you the information you need to take over away stadiums.
Major League Soccer covers a lot of cities and Austin FC will be traveling to them all. We've been in talks with the club and partners on fun and economical ways we can bring large groups of supporters to away games. We're looking into travel discounts and packages, as well as group voting on what key cities and matches we want to try and attend in person.
A Network of Grackles
With Austin Anthem members all over the country (and the world), it's also an exciting opportunity to meet more members in person and get their recommendations and suggestions on how best to experience their fine city.
Hotline to Supporters Nationwide
Austin Anthem is the Independent Supporters Council member for Austin. The organization is a collective of supporters groups across the soccer pyramid. This has allowed us to build relationships and share information with other supporters groups – something that comes in handy when you need some recommendations on where to go and what to do when traveling to an SGs city to take 3-points from their team.
How Match Day Planning Happens
Austin Anthem has been collaborating with the front office for years on what match day might look like, what features the supporters section should have, and more topics related to creating the environment and atmosphere. More recently, we've been part of committee conversations with other supporters on what the specifics should look like come 2021. This means discussions and a need for agreement and consensus on what banners to hang, what songs to sing, what to do when Austin FC scores, and more.
In addition to all this, our organziational team has a Match Day committee to work on our contributions to the supporter experience. These fall into a few main areas:
- TIFO and Banners - Creative artistic expressions of support ranging from flags to decorating equipment
- Rituals and Event Planning - Planning marches, events before the match, and the operational logistics of hanging 120-feet of TIFO banner.
- Travel Planning
- and of course Chants, Cheers, and Song workshopping
