AUSTIN (Talk1370.com) -- Austin's first professional sports team will open a multi-million dollar training facility in northeast Austin.

Austin FC officials announced Wednesday morning that the team will build its St. David's Performance Center at the Parmer Pond, just east of Interstate 35 on Parmer Lane. The 23-acre complex is expected to cost $45 million, and is just minutes from the team's $250 million stadium being constructed at McKalla Place.

"St. David’s Performance Center will be a world-class facility that will be integral to Austin FC realizing its full ambition as a soccer club," said Anthony Precourt, majority owner and chief executive officer of Two Oak Ventures and Austin FC. "This is a significant investment in our team, both at a senior level and for Austin FC Academy, as it is where the first team will train each day just minutes away from our new stadium, preparing to represent Austin by winning matches and trophies, and where we will help develop the next generation of talent. The health, wellness, development and security of our players are top priorities, so it’s critically important that we provide them with a facility that will set standards, not only within MLS, but also in professional sports nationwide."

The center is scheduled to open in time for Austin FC's first MLS season match in spring 2021.
