The Texas Derby is a soccer rivalry (derby) between Texas's two MLS teams, the Houston Dynamo and FC Dallas, recognizing the best club in the state for the season. The two squads play a series of games with the series winner taking home El Capitán, a replica 18th century mountain howitzer cannon. The Houston Dynamo clinched the 2006 series with a win on August 12, 2006 and the 2007 series with a win on August 19, 2007. FC Dallas claimed the 2008 series on the away goals rule, having tied with Dynamo in all three games played that season. On an additional note, FC Dallas has been able to actually fire El Capitán after wins at their home stadium, Pizza Hut Park; Houston was never able to fire the cannon due to restraints imposed by the lease at Robertson Stadium. However, since the Houston Dynamo moved into BBVA Compass Stadium in 2012, they have fired the cannon during pre-game ceremonies before home games.
