Our History

It all started at The Richmond Arms Pub.  A legit English soccer pub. For years, if you were a Barça fan this was the place to be. Take a moment to walk down memory lane and see some of the faces and important events from our past.

Early photo

One of the earliest documented pictures on our Facebook Group. Carlos, Obed and Jose were some of the regulars at the Richmond Arms well before the words 'Houston Culés' were ever uttered.

Alejandro and Kaje Jay

It was Alejandro who came up with the name 'Houston Culés' for us, and if you were a Barça fan in Houston back then you definitely knew Kaje Jay.
