As the youngest team in the NFL, the Texans haven’t had the same experiences as some older franchises. The team played its first season in 2002, following a hiatus from football in Houston after the Oilers departed after nearly 40 years in the city. However, just because the team doesn’t yet have the history of older franchises doesn’t mean that the Texans are any less relevant or their fans any less passionate.
The Texans have repeatedly made the playoffs in recent years and look like a team to watch this postseason. The team boasts a strong roster stocked with talent, headlined by superstar defensive end JJ Watt, marquee wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins, and electric young quarterback Deshaun Watson. Houston has embraced its new team over the last 20 years, but this could be the season when they are finally rewarded with a Lombardi Trophy?
The Texans maintain numerous outlets for fan outreach. This is headlined by a strong social media presence. The team has over 2 million likes on Facebook, 1.8 million on Twitter, and 1 million on Instagram. Each of these accounts are excellent sources of news and highlights for Texans fans nationwide. The official hashtag of the team is #WeAreTexans.
On the team’s official fan site, fans can register for numerous official fan clubs. The Stampede gives fans access to numerous newsletters, promotions, and opportunities. BattleRed Ladies is the official Texans fan club for women. The Toro’s Bravos club affords fans even more unique opportunities and appearances. Toro’s Kids Club is the official fan club for Texans fans ages 12 and under. The Travelling Texans club helps fans from across the country get together at various meetups. Though not an official fan club, Texans Connections helps fans connect with other Texans fans.
FanWide has a registry of Texans fan clubs nationwide, with 65 fan clubs currently listed.
