Don't forget that every ticket purchased with this link $5 will go back to the Manuia Group, a foundation that helps AAPI minority students achieve their higher education goals.

Currently, RSL forward Bobby Wood is the only player on the roster to hail from the Pacific Islands. Wood was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, and spent his first years enjoying the island of Oahu before moving to California at the age of six. He still has family that lives in Hawaii and visits them as frequently as possible.
Former RSL goalkeeper Nick Rimando is also very familiar with the AAPI community as his father is of Filipino descent.
RSL will host Austin for the first time in club history.
Kickoff is slated for 8 p.m. at Rio Tinto Stadium and will be available to stream for free via the KSL Sports & KSL 5 TV apps or on KSL Sports dot com.
