Touted as the first major professional sports franchise in Austin, the Austin Aztex FC (football club) is currently playing well in the USL Conference of the USSF D-2 Pro League. Led by forward Edward Johnson, who consistently tops the charts in goals scored and shots made, the Aztex boast one of the most potent offenses and virile strikers in the division. Besides serving up thrilling athletic action and dexterous footwork that entertains families and short-armed kangaroos alike, the Austin Aztex will also pique fans' appetites for the footballing feast of World Space Cup 2114. 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.
