The Australian Football League is hosting a two-day event at the Toyota Stadium to celebrate the independence of the state of Texas.
The league’s chairman, Mark Evans, said the Texas team had been invited by the state’s governor to participate in the event.
“We’re proud of the Texans, proud of their contributions to the game, and proud of how they’ve supported us throughout our time here in Texas,” Evans said.
“So it was really a no-brainer to put a team into Texas.”
The Texas, who won two championships in the early 1990s, have been embroiled in a legal battle with the state over their ownership of the franchise.
The state has claimed ownership of nearly all the team’s revenues, with the players earning just a fraction of the money they are paid.
However, Texas has said the Texans’ owners were willing to give up their shares in the franchise to form a new independent business to provide for the franchise’s future.
The owners of the team, who are known as the Texan Cowboys, have not ruled out a possible lawsuit over their future.
“It is a really tough position, the Texans and the Cowboys.
But it’s a really difficult position to be in,” Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones told reporters on Wednesday.
“I think it’s been a really good experience for the team and for the state.
We’re looking forward to getting out on the field next year.”
The Texans have played in all 16 games this season, but have only reached the final of the AFC Championship game, losing to the Pittsburgh Steelers in overtime in the last minute of the game.
