The Houston Dash is a professional women’s soccer team based in Houston, Texas. They joined the National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) in the 2014 season.
On November 19, 2013, the Houston Dynamo began talks in the initial stages with the intention of bringing a top flight women’s professional soccer franchise to Houston.
Just a week later, the effort was bolstered when the Dynamo began accepting refundable deposits for a potential NWSL expansion team. On December 11, 2013, the National Women’s Soccer League awarded the Houston Dynamo and the city of Houston an expansion franchise.
