The Houston Dash’s scheduled home game for this Sunday against Seattle Reign FC will be played at Toyota Stadium in Frisco, Texas, the club and the National Women’s Soccer League announced today.
"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.”
