Due to the competitiveness in the American Football Conference of the National Football League, the teams qualifying for playoff play may not be determined until the final NFL regular season game on Sunday, December 30, 2018.
Accordingly, the Texans could qualify for a playoff appearance as the AFC South Divisional winner or as a Wild Card team. If the Texans gain a playoff berth as the 3rd or 4th seeded team in the AFC, they would host a Wild Card playoff game on either Saturday, January 5, or Sunday, January 6, 2019. If the Texans gain the 1st or 2nd seed in the AFC, they would host a Divisional playoff game on either Saturday, January 12 or Sunday, January 13, 2019. The AFC Championship Game is scheduled for Sunday, January 20, 2019.
To prepare for the logistics of potentially hosting two playoff games, the Texans have been required by the National Football League to send playoff ticket information to all 2018 Season Ticket Members. The combination of the NFL playoff format, the number of playoff contending teams, and the limited time to print and distribute tickets, necessitates the NFL and the Texans to establish a deadline of Friday, December 14 to receive your payment.
In order to purchase your season ticket locations for playoff games, please submit payment using one of the payment methods outlined on your invoice. Due to the limited time available to distribute playoff tickets, the payment deadline cannot be extended under any circumstance.
PSL members: Per your PSL agreement, if you do not purchase your 2018 playoff tickets, you will forfeit your PSL and you will not be able to renew your tickets for the 2019 season and future seasons.
If additional tickets are available for Season Ticket Members and the general public, they will be sold at a later date to be determined. Designated date(s) will be announced via the news media and at www.HoustonTexans.com. Additional tickets will be available while they last (limits may apply). If a game is not played, tickets purchased over the counter MUST BE RETURNED to the original point of purchase to obtain a refund.
What is the payment deadline for playoff tickets?
To secure playoff tickets and receive souvenir tickets, we must receive payment by December 14. This deadline cannot be extended for any reason.
How can I pay for my tickets?
You can purchase them by mail, over the phone or through your Account Manager.
- Online – Log in to your online Account Manager. Please call Customer Service at 832-667-2002, option 1 if you need your password or have any questions about your invoice.
- Pay As You Play: Season Ticket Members now have the option to enroll in our “Pay As We Play” deposit program when paying online with a credit card. By choosing the Pay As We Play deposit program, you are not required to pay for your 2-game playoff package in full by the deadline. Once it is determined that NRG Stadium will host a playoff game, the enrolled card will be charged the ticket amount for the Wild Card/Divisional game. Should the Texans advance to host an AFC Championship game, the same enrolled card will be charged the ticket amount for the AFC Championship game
Please note: If your credit card doesn’t go through, your playoff ticket will not be allowed entry into NRG Stadium. The Houston Texans will make phone calls to the phone number on file to receive updated credit card information.
