    As the leader of Chantico's Army, the "...well-oiled machine of enthusiastic, border-line psychopathic aficionados" (I'm the one in the kilt) I want to say thanks for this article! Great reporting and proper reflection of the team, volunteers, supporters and fans. I'd also invite EVERYONE to come out and join us for a match (we're always behind the opposing teams bench on the north side of the west stands). Cheer in English, cheer in Spanish, we dn't care. Just cheer!!! For information, check out

    Thanks again Javier. Awesome article!!!

    Once again, I'd like to clarify that Wednesday's attendance of 6,051 is an aberration. From the statesman:

    "Wednesday's attendance of 6,051 fans set an all-time high for the second-year Aztex, although a significant portion of those in attendance entered for free.

    As part of a soccer in schools program, the franchise gave away free tickets to every Austin school district middle school and high school within a three-mile radius of House Park.

    "We need to see them here on a regular basis," Heath said of the crowd. "This was good football.""

    We shouldn't get too hype when a large chunk of the fans came for free. The key is how many will come back at the next home game.

    I'm proud to be a salamander loving, veggie devouring, bootscootin' swinging Austinite. Viva Futbol! Fun article!
    But if you keep telling people how wonderful life is in Austin, they're all gonna come and live here and we'll have to have another train "election" to accommodate the increase in I-35 traffic. Shhhhhhhhhhhh

    The author left out how we Texans tend to mock those from lesser states!

    Very well done article sir, got the name of our "supporters section" wrong but thats ok. Also some huge respect must be paid to the drummers, Austin's very own Samba school Academicos de Opera.

    Still a fine article.
    Cheers and maybe see you at the match June 5!!!!

    UP THE RAW!!!

    @jayscholar: Don't be such a Debbie Downer! The idea was to get kids excited about the team and to give them a chance to come out and see what we're all about. There has been tremendous positive feedback, and I expect that the next home game will clearly show the impact of inviting the schools. If you're a true soccer fan, any chance to get more people into the sport should be looked upon with excitement, not cynicism.
