After an inaugural season near the bottom of the league in 2021, Austin stormed toward the top of the table in 2022. That said, their expected goals numbers never quite aligned with their top-level points, leaving many to wonder if they were as good as their spot in the standings indicated. Head coach Josh Wolff, in his first professional head coach role and third season in Austin, has implemented ideas that resemble those of his former boss, recent USMNT head coach Gregg Berhalter. Austin's attacking style is clear and consistent, prioritising playing on the ground through lines to create intentional moments in the attacking half. Attacker and captain Sebastián Driussi is also one of the more prolific and entertaining players in the league.
