Should Austin get a Major League Soccer franchise, it will be called Austin FC, Precourt Sports Ventures announced Wednesday.

For the uninitiated, FC stands for "football club."

The Austin City Council voted to move ahead in negotiations with Major League Soccer and Precourt Sports Ventures to build a 20,000-seat stadium near the Domain.

The Austin City Council halted debate over the proposed Major League Soccer (MLS) stadium after four hours and decided to call a special meeting for next Wednesday. Mayor Steve Adler promised an 11: 30 a.m. vote at that meeting to give the city and MLS clarity on where they are headed.
