We Are Blood and Austin FC have announced a multi-year partnership to promote the importance of blood donation locally. Together, we will host a community blood drive on Tuesday, July 9 from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. in the Lexus Club at Q2 Stadium.

Every donor will receive an exclusive Austin FC and We Are Blood branded t-shirt along with an entry to win an armadillo kit jersey signed by the entire team.

This year, we have seen record patient need for blood transfusions at hospitals across Central Texas. This need often increases in the summer months, which can also be a challenging time for blood donations.

We Are Blood has partnered with Austin FC for blood drives over the past few years, helping inspire a significant number of blood donations. The collaboration between Austin FC and We Are Blood exemplifies a shared commitment to community health and wellness. This initiative not only helps maintain a steady blood supply for local hospitals but raises awareness about the ongoing critical need for blood donors in Central Texas.

“We look forward to building on our preexisting relationship with We Are Blood to host two blood drives at Q2 Stadium,” said Austin FC President Andy Loughnane. “We’re proud to support We Are Blood and the lifesaving work they do for our community.”
