Fan Outreach to Texans in San Antonio!!!!(please sticky)
Great news Texans fans!!!!!!
It is a great time to be a Texan fan in San Antonio. The Houston Texans are actively seeking to reach out to the Texans fans in San Antonio and South Texas. The organization is working extremely hard to regain its foothold here in San Antonio.
For those of you who don’t know the Texans were taken off the radio airwaves in San Antonio and that meant the permanent tie we had to the team was severed. If you were a Texan fan and the Texans were not on TV you were forced to pay for the Sunday ticket or go to sports bars just to see Texans games. Prior to last year, you could listen to complete pre and post game coverage of the Texans on Ticket 760, this was useful to us here in SA because the Texans were pulled off the local affiliate on a regular basis. However, last year we did not have that luxury. For whatever reason, the Texan broadcasts were pulled and replaced with out of market games for team that no one in Texas would care to follow. The Texans realized this and made efforts to establish a new home for the Texans, but due to the events following Hurricane Ike the Texans were (understandably ) forced to allocate resources to within the organization and to the city of Houston. We here in San Antonio thank them for doing so and one year later cheer for the city of Houston to get back on its feet.
2009 is a different story. The Texans are planning some exciting things for the fans in San Antonio and South Texas. They are in contact with other radio stations in an effort to bring the Texans back to the airwaves on TV and Radio. They are in contact with local retailers in efforts to increase Texans merchandise and make it more available to us here in San Antonio. Also they have plans to initiate fan outreach events in the San Antonio area. These events include watch parties for the games not on the air in SA, training camp events and more……..(Trust me Texans fans there are things in the works that are going to be big!!!!) Stay tuned and keep checking this thread out for further details……
This is all great news for Texans fans here in SA, but we need to help the Texans in their efforts of penetrating the market in this area. I encourage you to keep up your pressure on local media outlets to cover the Texans. Also, we may need to start a petition to show the stations here that there are Texans fans here in San Antonio…stay tuned for details.
The Battle Red Revolution is under way…….Go Texans!!!.
