Whether you’re a soccer fanatic or a newbie looking to embrace the sport, today’s Groupon is calling your name using a firm but non-violent tone. For 35 bucks, snatch this Pavilion Party Package to watch the Dynamo take on the Seattle Sounders at Robertson Stadium on August 23 at 7:30 p.m. The Houston Dynamo have the best record in Major League Soccer. And things are looking even hotter for the team: they’ve got captain Wade Barrett back after two months out this season with an injury. Watch Barrett and the Dynamo crush the competition.
Redeem your Groupon as early as 6 p.m. at the Pavilion on the west side of the stadium (off of Scott Street). This deal gets you upper end line seats behind the goals, a delicious meal catered by El Toro Restaurant, cash-bar access, and a Dynamo t-shirt. World-famous boxer Oscar De La Hoya will make an appearance during the second half of the event, where he’ll participate in a 5-minute Q & A session. We recommend you prepare the questions you’ve been dying to ask since De La Hoya won a gold medal in 1992 Barcelona games. Food, drinks, soccer, Oscar De La Hoya, and a shirt—everything you need to make the game a party—except for the electric go-kart which you’ll have to bring yourself.
Soccer is the world’s most popular sport. It’s such an exciting sport to watch live that fans break into song and communal celebration. The arc of a soccer ball soaring across the sky is a breathtaking spectacle. Fans relish well-timed passes, impenetrable defense, perfectly executed corners, and carding the referee for foul play in the parking lot after the game. The Dynamo’s winning record bodes well for this game against the Sounders. Don’t miss out on this Groupon exclusive–the Dynamo usually don’t sell these ticket specials individually. Get your Groupon to eat, drink, and cheer for the Dynamo as they dominate on the pitch.

A recent study published in the Modern American Soccer Journal reports that while soccer’s popularity in the United States has dramatically increased in the last 20 years, it is still less popular here than in the rest of the world. The sport’s devotees, who understand its true beauty, will do anything to educate Americans until soccer’s popularity in the States is greater than anywhere else in the world. Anything! To that end, they’ve prepared a crash course on soccer-fan etiquette for those new to the world’s greatest sport: * Keep in mind that soccer bats are not wooden sticks—instead players use their legs at bats.
- While cowboy boots are not explicitly banned, you should refrain from wearing spurs. * Consider leaving smaller pets (hamster or cockatoo) inside your purse or pockets.
- Be considerate of others. Shave your forearms. * Bring enough butter to share with everyone.
