If you really want to talk sports in Texas, we’d need a much bigger website. So, in short, if it uses a ball, stick, mat, club, helmet, racquet, pool, referee or pit crew, you can bet we have that sport (and in some cases, a championship title to match) and tickets to watch it live.
Professional sports are big time here. Texas hosts two NFL football teams, three NBA teams in San Antonio, Houston and Dallas, a pair of MLB franchises and even an NHL team. Yeah, ice hockey in Texas! Cool, huh? And don’t forget the other football...soccer. Besides the majors, we have dozens of thrilling, easily accessible minor league teams in every sport imaginable, scattered through friendly, mid-size cities that can be just as fun as the big boys.
Texas is an enormous place with an enormous passion for sports, an enormous number of fine universities and colleges, and enormous rivalries between them. Not only that, we also have countless fans visiting to see NCAA Final Four tournament action, as well as college football bowl games. Now, rivals from other states are even coming to the mammoth Cowboys Stadium in Arlington to make their big games that much bigger.
Even if you’re not a sports prodigy, there are nearly infinite chances to have fun sporting around on your trip to Texas. Of course, golf is a hit here. As well as cycling, fishing, hunting, batting cages, skateboard parks, ultimate Frisbee, wind boarding, kayaking and, well...virtually every sport that’s been invented to date.
