New signing Xavier Báez joined festivities led by owner Bobby Epstein at COTA

AUSTIN, Texas – Austin Bold FC broke ground on Bold Stadium on Wednesday morning at Circuit of The Americas in an event that marked the latest landmark for the organization as it builds toward its inaugural season in the USL in 2019.

Scheduled to open next spring, the venue will initially seat 5,000+ fans upon completion, but the location of the stadium sitting northwest of the Austin360 Amphitheater and tucked between sections of the Formula 1 race track could allow for expansion as needed in years to come.

“We want something we can fill up from the start with an electric atmosphere of about 5,000 people and also have the ability to grow,” Majority Owner and COTA Chairman Bobby Epstein told the Austin American-Statesman’s Chris Bils. “We’ve left ourselves some of that flexibility.”

On hand for the ceremony was Bold FC’s newest signing, former Liga MX midfielder Xavier Baez, who participated in the ceremonial groundbreaking alongside Epstein.

Here are some of the sights and sounds from Circuit of The Americas on Wednesday.
