We began with the intention of developing the park through grants and sponsorships for our non-profit. After covid it was determined a new approach needed to be taken. We are thrilled to announce a portion of the park has been sliced out to partner with a for-profit soccer organization.
The Soccer Hub brand will expand into South Austin at our park. This new facility will be an entirely new concept and a one-of-a-kind space not seen elsewhere in Austin or the surrounding area. We will build a large outdoor artificial turf field with open air sides and a covered roof that will accommodate a variety of soccer game formats. Our facility will have the capability to play 9v9, 6v6 or the smaller sided 5v5v futsal games. The space will also allow for other sports, but the primary focus will be soccer!
The field will be covered from the elements and will have great air flow from the cross-breeze and 4 “Big Ass Fans”. Attached to the field will be an air-conditioned building that will be contain concessions, restrooms, lounge space with wifi and TVs, private space for our after school program, meetings and birthday parties.
The Soccer Hub South Austin will be surrounded by our non-profit outdoor soccer park and has the advantage of serving the whole park. This park is located on land owned by The Marbridge Foundation which is a residential community for adults with intellectual disabilities. We are thrilled to know we have the added benefit of serving and employing members of their community, which is right across the street.
If you are interested in learning more about how to become an investor in this facility we have an overview we can share. Please reach out to Christie Altree or call 512-844-9603.

The cornerstone of Build Soccer is to provide opportunities for all people to participate in soccer. The residents at Marbridge will be an integral part of the Soccer Park at Marbridge, both through a future Special Olympics soccer program and through internships, paid working opportunities and more.
The residents at Marbridge already have a special relationship with the kids who play soccer at Marbridge. The residents often come cheer on the teams as they play and high-five the kids as they leave the field. The kids volunteer at Marbridge events, make cards for the residents and love seeing them around campus. We hope to deepen these relationships with long-term collaboration and community building.
Location. Location. Location.
A convenient location for families throughout South Austin and beyond. Between San Marcos and Round Rock there are no youth soccer parks. In fact, the closest lighted soccer parks to South Austin families are on average 45 minutes away.
The Soccer Park at Marbridge will be under 10 miles from major subdivisions such as Circle C Ranch, Meridian, Belterra, Shady Hollow, Bear Creek, Leisurewoods, Plum Creek and many more in Buda/ Kyle.
With the new 45 Toll Road opening in 2019, this park provides easy access to soccer for thousands of families.

These park renderings that motivate us to this day are shown below. Luck Park Design's previous projects include the 5 Mile Dam Soccer Park and the Schertz Soccer Park. The owner of Luck Park Design is also a soccer dad so he has first-hand experience. We know parents and young siblings often spend 8 or more hours a week supporting their young athlete. The soccer park has been designed with features that will appeal to everyone. It will also be compliant to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Standards for Accessible Design.
