Wednesday, May 15, 2013 :: Many folks have asked how they can get the words to the chants and songs that we sing during matches. You asked, and we have listened. You can check out the chant sheets that we distribute during the matches (free of charge to anyone who wants them) by clicking here. We try to keep to a core set of chants and songs, as it's best to bring familiarity to the songs versus constant variety. So check out the songs (and this is by no means all the songs), and practice before the match. Once it's match day, everyone needs to bring their "game voices"!!!
Thanks to all the members of the Army who helped in updating these chants!!
The playoffs will be played on Friday and Saturday, so as to make travel easier for the teams who have to come out of town. There will be two matches on Friday, that will pit the Aztex against the #2 seeded team from the Southeastern Division (TBD) and the #1 seeded team (TBD) from the Southeaster Division against the #2 Mid South Division seed (TBD). Although seedings are still up in the air, we do know that the Southeastern Division will be represented by the Panama City Beach Pirates and the Ocala Stampede.
The Championship game will be played on Saturday. Time to be announced.
The Aztex announced that fans can leverage their regular season flex tickets for the Playoffs. Additionally, one ticket would be all that is needed for Friday's two matches.
The winner of the Southern Conference Championship will then go on to play in the USL PDL League Playoffs.
So be sure to block off Friday and Saturday and join Eberly's Army at the stadium for all the matches. This is our opportunity to show the league that soccer is wildly supported in Austin!!

Sunday, August 25, 2013 :: Eberly's Army members Matthew Gray and Eric Vormelker are joined by Eberly's Army President Paul Hart in this special presentation of the Army's "In the Mixer" Podcast. During the discussion, we talk about the Austin Aztex season including their great run to the USL PDL Championship crown. We also speak about the future of the Aztex, what we would like to see and what we feel is possible. We hope you enjoy this, and who knows, if it's something folks like, we may do more.
Monday, July 15, 2013 :: What an exciting weekend for members of Eberly's Army and the Austin Aztex Nation! Unless you've been living under a rock, you are well aware of the fact that the Aztex claimed the USL PDL Mid South Division Championship Saturday night with the 4-0 win over Oklahoma City FC. The match was very exciting, as it's one that has had a number of us worried as OKCFC have been very strong all year. Of course, it didn't hurt that Kris Tyrpak (the 2012 Eberly's Cup winner) scored the first goal of his hat trick in the 16th second of the game.
Although the season isn't over, we wanted to go ahead and get the voting started for the 2013 Eberly's Cup winner. This award is voted on by member's of Eberly's Army and Aztex fans for their selection for the Most Valuable Player for the year. You may be asking why we're doing this so soon. Unfortunately, many players are coming up on having to report to university for the Fall soccer season. Therefore, we wanted to make sure and get the award selection made so we can give the cup to the winner before they leave for the Fall.
The winner will not only get the Eberly's Cup, but their name will be added to a plaque that has the names of the past winners (including the winners from Aztex 1.0 when it was called the "Chantico's Cup"). The winner will also receive an Eberly's Army scarf, shirt and have a supporters beer recipe named after them (and assuming they're over 21, they'll get several bottles).
To vote, simply visit our survey below, or visit the survey site here. Voting will end on Monday, July 22nd. We will then announce the winner at the end of season dinner hosted by the Austin Aztex (date TBD).
