The kickoff time for the NWSL’s historic fourth championship game has been set, and the field seats & President’s Club section are already sold out. It’s time to start making plans for NWSL championship weekend in Houston (if you haven’t started already) … and of course buying tickets.

Below is a schedule of events for October 7th through 9th in Houston – more info will be added as other events and details become available. If you know of an item that should be added to the list, email The Keeper.

Flying to Houston?
Houston has two major airports – Houston Hobby (Southwest hub) and George Bush Intercontinental (United hub). Hobby is closer to downtown and the stadium, though Bush may have more flight options.
Where to stay
There are lots of great options on Airbnb, plus the Bayou City Republic supporters group has reserved a discounted block of rooms ($99 per night for a double) at the Wyndam Medical Center, a hotel near the light rail and near shopping/dining/park/museums.

There are also a few affordable hotel options in downtown though there’s not a lot to do there after dark. For the best budget deal, check out the Morty Rich hostel in the eclectic Montrose neighborhood – it’s close to light rail & bus routes, and near rentable bike stations.
