Texans-Cowboys game canceled after being moved from floods

Posted August 31, 2017

Online ticket exchange StubHub has removed all listings for Thursday's preseason game between the Dallas Cowboys and Houston Texans at AT&T Stadium after buyers tried to make a profit by buying and reselling their tickets. Water has receded enough in some places that the team can return to Houston. At this time, the priority of our organization is getting our players, coaches and staff back home to be reunited with their families, many of whom have been evacuated from their homes and are now sheltered. To me, we've played in a bunch of preseason games. The team feels it is imperative to get back home to help the Houston community recover from devastation of Hurricane Harvey.

"We told our team at the outset of the week that it might be a amusing week given the circumstances that they're going through down in Houston", Garrett said. The Cowboys said ticket buyers can choose to either get a refund or have the money donated to Hurricane Harvey relief. The proceeds from Thursday's game were slated to go to Hurricane Harvey recovery efforts.

The Houston Texans have pledged $1 million to help their city rebuild.
