In the build-up to our friendly clash with Club America at the NRG Stadium, the trio spent time with the local OSC on Sunday, taking part in a Q&A, before 200 members were invited to attend an exclusive open training session later in the week.
The Premier League trophy was also on show at the Q&A event, while Moonchester and Moonbeam were also in attendance, and members were presented with a branded t-shirt on arrival.
After open training, the Club hosted a 'Welcome to Houston' event on Tuesday for fans, where our Dallas OSC recorded a special podcast live.
In addition, the Chairs from the Houston Space Cityzens and Blue Moon Dallas (Michele Shepard and Mark Mulvanny) judged a ‘grill-off’ challenge, which Nathan Ake, Stefan Ortego Moreno, Liam Delap, Luke Mbete and the chef at Feges contested in the Feges kitchen.
Team 1 (Ake and Moreno) were declared the winners before all seven players took part in a signing session and photo opportunity.
Michele Shepard , Houston OSC Committee member and Chair said: "The Welcome to Houston party the night before the game was a fantastic way for City fans from all over the country to come together and celebrate last season’s Premier League title as well as having a photo with the trophy!!!
"It also gave fans from all over, and new Houston fans and members, the opportunity to come and see where our Houston OSC venue is located and the opportunity to get to know lots of members from our Houston branch before the new season kicks off!
"The Q&A kicked off our very first preseason event for our OSC here in Houston.
"As the chair of our branch it was so wonderful to see so many smiles and excitement on the faces of our Houston members.
"It felt like the Q&A, and in fact all the events that followed, were one big thank you from City to all of our members for their support.
"I was absolutely floored seeing all the sky blue in the crowd at the NRG Stadium for the game against Club America. That to me said a job well done and a very successful preseason accomplished here in Houston. "
