Austin FC fans unveiled a tifo honoring Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage month during Saturday’s game at Q2 Stadium vs. Kansas City.

Still new to the world soccer scene, Austin FC is going toe to toe with long-standing clubs worldwide as the club made its debut on the list of most valuable soccer teams on earth.

The list, which is published by sports finance and analytics website Sportico, sees Austin FC slot in at 21 on a list that features 50 clubs from around the world. 

With an estimated value of $800 million, Austin FC — which is currently in its 4th season — is the youngest team on this list by a sizable margin. The team’s success is a testament to how a city hungry for professional sports has embraced its first major sports team.
