Supporting Houston Dynamo: Fan Clubs & Chants
What are the Houston Dynamo Supporter Clubs Called?
The Houston Dynamo have a large following of fans called the Hustle Town Supporters. Every supporter club brings something different to the table, but they are all connected through their love for their home team. The groups associated with the Hustle Town Supporters are The Surge, El Batallon, Bandera Negra, and the Texian Army.
Who Is The Surge?
The Surge is a supporters’ group whose goal is to champion the Houston Dynamos, local Houston soccer, and the surrounding communities. With a mission to represent “H-Town,” The Surge put as much emphasis on supporting their local community as they do supporting the Dynamo. On their official website, The Surge have a motto of “Club and Community.” Along with the Houston Dynamo, The Surge members also support Houston teams such as the Dash, the Dynamo 2 and the Academy. The Surge supports their community by raising money for local charities, volunteering and supporting local businesses.
The Surge began as a joke amongst friends in 2019; however, after a powerful orange wave of support followed their social media posts, the group understood there was a need for a different outlook in the Houston soccer fan realm. The group officially formed in 2020, meeting at Rodeo Goat for a pregame and marching together to BBVA Stadium. The pandemic did not slow The Surge down, as they donated funds to Dynamo Charities and organized volunteer work for their members.
