Rio Grande Valley FC Toros TicketsThe Rio Grande Valley FC Toros is one of the premier soccer clubs of southern Texas. Since 2016, the club has cultivated a small but passionate fanbase as a member of the USL Championship, the second-highest soccer league in the United States. The Toros was the first hybrid club in the USL, meaning that it has a dual management structure. The business side is handled by Lone Star, LLC. The player selection and development side is handled by the Houston Dynamo of the MLS. Rio Grande Valley’s inaugural season in 2016 was an enormous success. The club finished second in the Western Conference with a 14-9-7 record and qualified for the playoffs although it lost to the OKC Energy in the first round 3-2. In 2017, Rio Grande achieved the fifth highest attendance in the entire USL with 7,067 fans per match. StubHub is a convenient source for all Rio Grande Valley FC Toros tickets.
