I was hoping to get some solid advise from season ticket holders out there. I am not local but I have been considering buying season tickets for a few years but never have. Truth is I was thinking that enough people might drop their tickets this year and that I could get 2 really good seats and hang on to them. My concern is, I would only make a couple games a year and sell the others for at least a few years until I can relocate closer to Houston. This may be a stupid question, but should i even consider buying season tickets this year?

How hard is it to get season tickets? Do you guys that sell some of your tickets make money, lose money, or come out even? How does the process of getting season tickets even work? It may be a long shot but i'm hoping for 2 tickets within about 10 rows from the field, not even sure if that's possible. Should I try to get season tickets or just keep buying individual tickets for the games I want?

Sorry if these are dumb questions, just looking for some good advise and wondering if I could get 2 really good seats if I would have trouble at least breaking even on the tickets I would sell. Thanks guys!

If you are definitely planning on relocating - DO IT!!!!

If not, just buy individual tickets as you need them. Unloading 8 +/- games per year could be cumbersome.

man its easy to flip tickets now. ebay. just set the price at face and let people drive up the price. ebay is legal scalping. throwing in a parking pass always helps. just contact the texans and they'll let you know what's available when they are selling seats. i think i'm gonna make a move on better seats this year given that alot might open. to be honest i've bought tix for the cowboys and texans on ebay over the years and alot of times they are postmarked out of state

Most times you can't even give pre-season tix away.
