The Houston Dash have announced their 2019 home schedule as they set their sights on the National Women's Soccer League championship. NWSL fans can get tickets to every Houston Dash home game at BBVA Compass Stadium, starting March 19 at 10 a.m. local time, here at AXS.
Houston is entering their sixth season in the NWSL, and are looking for their first championship. The team is coming off a difficult 2018 campaign that saw them finish sixth in the regular season and fail to make the playoffs. But they've shaken things up in an attempt to break through into the postseason. Head coach Vera Pauw has been replaced by James Clarkson, who spent more than a decade developing talent for Houston Dynamo Academy, the Major League Soccer development team.
The Dash began preseason workouts last week; you can watch footage of their preseason training by playing the video above.
The organization's biggest acquisition on the field is midfielder Christine Nairn, who was traded to Houston by the Orlando Pride in February, and has also played for the NWSL's Seattle Reign FC and Washington Spirit. While with Washington, Nairn led the team to their first ever NWSL Championship appearance; she also scored a key goal against the Dash that earned her NWSL Goal of the Week honors in August 2016. Now she'll be looking to make similar headlines for Houston instead of against them.
With a new coach and new players, the Dash are determined to find their form and put themselves on top of the standings. Soccer fans will want to snag tickets to one or more home games to watch this team develop into title contenders and, potentially, champions.
