For our July Area Business Connections event, we'll dive into the world of professional sports in Austin with Austin FC President Andy Loughnane and Austin Gamblers CEO JJ Gottsch, moderated by Drew Hays from the Austin Sports Commission. In the past few years, the addition of Austin FC and the Austin Gamblers Professional Bull Riding Team have shown that Austin has a fan base for professional teams, and with the exponential growth of the city, there's been lot of talk about what's next. At the event, we'll discuss the state of professional sports in Austin and the possibilities of bringing more professional sports teams to our city.
