Austin FC revealed as name for Columbus Crew after move

Columbus Crew

AUSTIN, TX (KXAN) — The logo and team name for the Columbus Crew, assuming the move to Austin goes through, was released Wednesday evening.

Austin FC’s logo features a green and white logo with two live oak trees made by The Butler Bros brand studio.

New renderings of the stadium, planned for McKalla Place in north Austin, were also released at the event, held at The North Door music venue.

Austin City Council voted in a 7-4 decision on Aug. 15 to authorize the negotiation with Precourt Sports Ventures to bring the Columbus Crew to Austin and build a 20,000-seat stadium at the currently empty site at Burnet Road and Braker Lane.

The proposal won over hesitant council members after the owners agreed to pay $3 million to CapMetro for bus service in the area.

Precourt Sports Ventures hopes to have the stadium ready for the 2021 MLS season.
