This weekend’s Houston Dash home game against the Seattle Reign will be played at Toyota Stadium in Frisco, Texas at 7 p.m. on Sunday (Sept 3rd) in the home stadium of FC Dallas. It will be the Dash’s first ever regular season NWSL home game away from BBVA Compass Stadium. .
"On behalf of the Dash, I want to sincerely thank the Hunt family and our partners at FC Dallas for stepping up to assist our club in this time of need," said Dash president Chris Canetti. "We are thankful for the opportunity to play this match in Frisco and that the FC Dallas Foundation will be using the event as a benefit to the American Red Cross Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund. This is a great example of the soccer community uniting to help one another in difficult times."
The match, presented by the FC Dallas Foundation, was relocated to north Texas after Hurricane Harvey made landfall in southeast Texas, resulting in widespread flooding and damage in Houston and the surrounding area. The storm also postponed Houston’s previous home game, scheduled for Aug. 27 against the North Carolina Courage.
"It’s such a challenging time for everyone in the greater Houston area," said FC Dallas president Dan Hunt. "We’re happy to partner with the Houston Dash organization and help them work through this situation."
Fans in Dallas-Fort Worth can purchase tickets at FCDallas.com/Tickets or call 888-FCD-GOAL. Proceeds will benefit the American Red Cross Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund.
The Dash will travel to Frisco Wednesday and train at Toyota Soccer Center on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday and will train at MoneyGram Soccer Park on Saturday ahead of the game.
