Each season ticket holder will only be able to acquire up to 10 tickets for any given game until the limit is reached.

Can a tailgate ticket be forwarded or reprinted?

Why do the Texans charge $12 for the tailgate ticket?

The Houston Texans have set the price at $12, to cover the additional expenses required to host extra patrons on property. That money will provide additional security, facilities, and parking personnel to manage the added patrons that will remain on property after all other game ticket members have gone inside the stadium.
