Despite being the NFL’s youngest franchise, having played their inaugural season back in 2002, the Houston Texans are still a team with a large legion of loyal fans. Playing in the football hotbed of Texas surely helps, but recent success and stability led by their franchise quarterback Deshaun Watson have the future looking very bright in Houston. As a result, home games at NRG Stadium are among the most in-demand of any NFL team.

Tips for Getting Cheap Houston Texans Tickets in 2019
1. Buy your tickets close to game time
One of the oldest tricks in the book for experienced Texans fans is to simply wait until close to game time before purchasing your seats, even if it’s in the parking lot during your tailgate. While this method isn’t foolproof (ticket prices can increase as it gets closer to a game, usually when unforeseen circumstances arise, such as the matchup being a more critical one than fans initially anticipated, a beloved player announcing retirement ahead of a game, etc.), it’s been proven to be one of the best ways for fans to save money on tickets. Sellers will often lower their prices as the game day draws closer out of desperation. This way, they can avoid having their inventory going unsold, which would lead to them eating the ticket cost.
NRG Stadium has a maximum seating capacity of nearly 72,000. As there’s plenty of seats in this large stadium, a high amount of available ticket inventory prior to a game can only help the buyer, as sellers have more competition and feel pressured to lower their prices in order to sell their tickets.
2. Plan for a non-divisional (non-rivalry) Game
As any Texans fan can tell you, there’s usually more excitement surrounding matchups against their biggest AFC South rivals like the Indianapolis Colts than there is against non-divisional opponents, making contests against non-rivals cheaper as a whole. Fans begin doing their research as soon as the NFL schedule is announced in April and begin circling their calendars well ahead of the season to plan out what game(s) they know they’ll want to attend.
3. Seek a Game Later in the Season
There’s often a sweet spot for when fans can buy Houston Texans tickets at a reasonable price from a secondary marketplace, and that time is toward the end of the season. Home openers are always among the most expensive tickets for any NFL team, and this is due to the fact that regardless of how good a team should be heading into a season, fans of even the NFL’s worst teams have a shred of hope early on that this could be the year. Not to mention, fans who haven’t had meaningful NFL football in their lives for seven months finally get to scratch that itch.
4. Try to Avoid Prime time Games
It can go without saying, but most games that the NFL deems worthy of having occur during prime time in front of a national TV audience such as Monday Night Football, Thursday Night Football, or Sunday Night Football are ones featuring teams that are expected to be good, rivalry games, or those that fall under both categories.
If you go for an early afternoon game on a Sunday against a team that isn’t very good, this can help you save money on Texans tickets.
5. Buy Your Texans Tickets On TickPick
The one way you can guarantee yourself the cheapest Houston Texans tickets this season is to buy them through TickPick.
