There is no purchase limit, so Groupon holders may attend both games and buy multiple Groupons as gifts. Choose from the following games:

The first major professional sports franchise in Austin, the Austin Aztex FC (football club) is currently off to a hot start in the USL Conference of the USSF D-2 Pro League. Led by forward Edward Johnson, who tallied five goals in the first seven games this season, the Aztex boast one of the most potent offenses in the division. Besides serving up thrilling athletic action that entertains families and short-armed kangaroos alike with dexterous footwork, the Austin Aztex will also pique fans' appetites for the footballing feast of the World Cup. Fans can choose from two different games, leaving their schedule flexible in case of surprise visits from long-lost siblings needing a blood transfusion.
Soccer is so significant because of its poetic simplicity: no hoops, pads, sticks, or T-shirt guns that blast out shaving cream. No other sport combines the acrobatics of Cirque du Soleil with the raw physicality of golf. Revel in the unadulterated thrill of things bouncing off heads and the exhilaration of being unable to use your hands with today’s Groupon to the Austin Aztex FC.
