Root on The Houston Dash as they square off against both the Portland Thorns FC and inequality with a Pride Night celebration at BBVA Compass Stadium on Saturday, July 16, 2016.

This weekend, Houston soccer fans can give the Dash a home field advantage and cheer and chant the team to yet another victory. Fans get the home field advantage too.

On Saturday, BBVA Compass Stadium hosts Pride Night, where fans have the option to purchase a Dash Pride Pack, which includes match tickets and a Dash Pride t-shirt for $33. During warm-ups, players will wear the rainbow-emblazoned Dash Pride t-shirts as well.

Pride Night 2016

For this year’s Pride Night, organizers have amended the event to benefit the Orlando Pulse tragedy victims and their families. In addition to playing in the game, players will autograph their Pride t-shirts worn during warm-up and make them available for purchase.

The club hosts two auctions: a pregame auction, where fans can bid on tickets and experiences for the night of the game, and an in-game auction, where items include a pair of special-edition ‘Leave Your Legacy’ boots and an autographed jersey courtesy of team captain Carli Lloyd. All proceeds go to OneOrlando.

The Houston Dash Experience

Soccer fans and families alike get a Houston experience like no other with the Dash at BBVA. The supporter section drums, sings, and cheers the entire 90 minutes as the 713 Squad leads the crowd in chant.

And as is tradition, at the end of each game players from both teams take a lap around the lower level to high-five, autograph, and take photos with fans. This means you may meet soccer superstars like Carli Lloyd, Morgan Brian, and fan favorites like team veteran Melissa Henderson.
