As summer ends, we transition into the new phase of our year – SPORTS SEASON! Houston is a world class city when it comes to professional sporting events. It has several teams that boast a long list of titles and championships. This coupled with their fiercely loyal fan base will keep you on your toes and excited for each and every game! From Soccer and Basketball, to Football and Golf, the downtown area has a unique and lively stadium district that hosts it all! The Astros Minute Maid Park, the Rockets Toyota Center, and the only dedicated MLS Soccer arena in a city center – the Dynamos BBVA Compass Stadium. Houston is the premier place this season to get involved in the local activities.
Don’t Miss Your Shot to See the Dynamo
Soccer fans decked out in orange, known as the Texan Army, mob BBVA Compass Stadium to see the two-time MLS Cup Champion Dynamos play in downtowns trendy EaDo neighborhood. The Dynamo have had 7 winning seasons since being formed in 2006. The fans are just as entertaining as the action on the field with their loud and enthusiastic, chanting, drumming, and waving flags. Check them out this upcoming Saturday as they play the LA Galaxy.
Here We Go, Houston Rockets
Don’t miss your chance to catch a game at the Toyota Center and support the Houston Rockets! Boasting two NBA championship wins, as well as four Western Conference Championships, this team is looking like a sure thing as we come into this new season. After last year, dominating the season at 65-17, they are expected to maintain a strong trajectory especially after the off seasons acquisitions. You can find available tickets to the next Rockets game here. #RunAsOne
The All-American TEXANS
In Texas, football is king, and the Texans have made Houston their home since 2002. Even a quick visit to the city will show that football is everything in this town. With Texan flags, jerseys and bumper stickers everywhere, this team is an important part of Houston’s identity.
Right now, the Texans are taking lead in the AFS South division with a 4-3 record. This was a shocker to fans as they started the season with three straight losses. But the turnaround is promising, giving Texans the hope they need for the season!
Don’t Forget, College Football.
Since Texans can’t get enough football, you can count on fans to look for more. Thankfully, University of Houston’s very own Cougars play right downtown on campus at TDECU Stadium. The Cougars have a long-standing history with eleven conference championships and Heisman Trophy winner Andre Ware. Since the Cougars are currently leading their division, this season is sure to deliver. Tickets to homes games here!
Let’s Go ASTROS!
Root for one of baseball’s most famous teams…Houston’s World Series Champions, the Astros! Houston’s home baseball team plays in Minute Maid Park in the middle of downtown, which incorporates historic Houston Union Station in its architecture. Every time the Astros hit a home run, fireworks shoot from the outfield and a vintage train rolls its way closer to the old Union Station. Unfortunately, the season just ended for the Astros as they lost their chance at the world series to the Red Sox. However, you can stay connected and keep up-to-date on their post-season schedule at www.mlb.com/astros.
