October World Cup Qualifying Matches

First things first. With yet another dos a cero win over Mexico in Columbus WE ARE GOING TO BRAZIL!

While a place at the 2014 FIFA World Cup is assured, CONCACAF Qualifying continues with a final pair of matches. And with Costa Rica right behind us in the standings, major bragging rights are on the line.

The penultimate matchup is the final home game of the Hex and against Jamaica, the first team we defeated on their own soil during this round. The Reggae Boys are the only team ineligible for Brazil and they face the USA at one of our strongest home venues, Sporting Park in Kansas City.

September World Cup Qualifying Matches

The summer of 2013 saw victory in the CONCACAF Gold Cup and a record breaking winning streak lengthened, and this month US Soccer looks to continue the success by securing a spot in the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

We beat them in the snow. We beat them in the Sun. But can we beat Costa Rica for a third time in 2013 in their National Stadium in San Jose? It’s a battle for the top of the Qualifying table as we currently share the greatest number of points with Costa Rica. This watch party will be great as we watch the game on the brand new Cuatrotron and celebrate the Kicking and Screening Soccer Film Festival in Austin.

Will the “dos a cero” tradition continue? Or are two goals too little to hope for with the way the Mexican National Team has been performing lately? The epic rivalry returns to Columbus where the United States has reigned victorious for every World Cup Qualifying cycle since 2001. The match starts at 7 but happy hour runs up until game time so come to Cuatros early so USA fans can own the patio.

Kicking and Screening Soccer Film Festival

Now in its fifth year, the Kicking and Screening Soccer Film Festival is coming to Austin this upcoming weekend for two days of film, fun, and discussion.

The festival has made stops over the years in New York, London, Amsterdam, and Portland, and this year Austin is added to the list with two documentaries along with a pair of short films being screened on the University of Texas campus. Saturday evening’s feature is “The Four Year Plan” about a billionaire takeover of the English club Queens Park Rangers with a scheme for the team to rise to the Premier League. The film is paired with the short “Meister vs. Meister” and a discussion led by our own Dan Wiersema.

Sunday evening brings “After the Cup: Sons of Sakhnin United” which follows a season of one of Israel’s only mixed-religion teams who were thrust into the spotlight with a promotion to the nation’s top league. The evening’s short is about youth playing soccer in a war zone, “Ana’s Playground.” The Festival wrap party will be Sunday night at Hole in the Wall across from the UT campus.

Information about all of the screenings and how to get tickets is at www.kickingandscreening.com.

The road to the 2017 Confederations Cup in Russia begins this month for the US Men’s National Team. For the first time, the winner of the 2013 CONCACAF Gold Cup plays the winner of the 2015 Gold Cup to determine who will represent the region in the tournament that gives teams a preview of the following year’s World Cup venues.

Things begin this week with a Friday friendly against Guatemala. It’s a late west coast game so you can take in the Austin Aztex at House Park and head up to Cuatros for the USA match.

Group C action for the Gold Cup begins in one week with matches against Guatemala and Belize and a rematch with World Cup Qualifying competitors Costa Rica.

2014 World Cup Qualifying Continues

The US Men’s National Team’s two matches leading up to the next batch of World Cup Qualifiers ended up being a split decision with a loss against Belgium and a victory over Germany. This weekend is when matches start counting toward Brazil again with a trio of games this month.

Not only is the first match on the docket an away game against the Reggae Boys of Jamaica, but it’s also National Beer Outreach Day with the Free Beer Movement. Join us for a big party at Cuatros with a keg of Lone Star for AO members and guests, as well as $3 pints of Firestone Walker Pilsner throughout the match.

Finally, it’s the first rematch of The Hex for the United States as we take on Honduras at Rio Tinto Stadium outside Salt Lake City. Los Catrachos bested us on their home turf followed by a loss and a draw, so they currently sit at the bottom of a three way tie that includes the US.

USA vs. Mexico

It’s the rivalry for the ages and the next stop on the road to Brazil next summer. And while this is an away match in Mexico City, last summer proved that the Azteca isn’t an impenetrable fortress and it’s possible for the USA to come away with a win. Come join us at Cuatros for one of the most fun matches of the year.

The Centennial Begins

Much like the 100th anniversary of the Canadian Soccer Association last year, the centennial of the US Soccer Federation features a matchup between the USA and our neighbors to the north. The match on the 29th caps off Jurgen Klinsmann’s January training camp and is taking place down the road at BBVA Compass Stadium in Houston. We will both have contingencies  in the supporters section in Houston and at our home base back in Austin, Cuatros.

The Hex Begins

The final round of World Cup 2014 Qualifying (aka the Hexagonal or the Hex) starts soon after January Camp on February 6th with an away trip to Honduras. A home match against Los Catrachos brought us the first win of the Klinsmann era so lets cheer on the USA to their being the first win of the Hex. Join us at Cuatros for a good start to the Hexagonal with three points heading into the March matches.

USA vs. Guatemala WC Qualifier

Just a quick note about our watch party this Tuesday night since there is a slight, but awesome, change since our email at the beginning of the month.

The second World Cup Qualifier will be free, no cover, thanks to Cuatros and Austin’s own soccer club the Aztex!

This match is Pay Per View only and at Cuatros it’s not only free to watch, it’s also the night of their best beer specials of the week. Add in great food at great prices and ample parking at and around 24th and San Gabriel and Cuatros is the best place to be in town to catch The Yanks in action.

And as long as the beer is cheap, why not bring a friend or three and introduce them to US Soccer and the American Outlaws — Free Beer Movement style?

Thank you so much to Cuatros and the Austin Aztex for making this watch party possible. Catch the Aztex in action this Saturday night against the El Paso Patriots 7:30 PM at House Park!

May 20, 2012

It’s going to be a busy season coming up for US Soccer and the American Outlaws. We have a few more friendlies left then World Cup Qualifying begins. 

With so much happening in the months ahead we wanted to make sure we were meeting as a chapter at the best spot we could for everyone. We put out a survey, and we heard all your feedback.

Beginninng with the friendlies at the end of May we will begin meeting for matches at Cuatros, 1004 West 24th Street.

There are a few factors we took into consideration with this change:

Game experience. Cuatros will make every effort for our matches to be on their huge screen, but in the instances that another event needs to take precedence, we will be guaranteed a side room with great tvs and sound, meaning that we won’t ever have to compete with other distractions in order to enjoy our matches.

Food and drink prices. Cuatros has great prices for beer, drinks, appetizers, and meals. Plus, for American Outlaws…$4 Texas draft beers

We are excited about our new partnership with Cuatros and the general manager has said she’s very excited about us coming over. We hope to see you all there May 26 at 7 PM for USA vs. Scotland!
