Ahead of the impending landfall of Hurricane Harvey, the Houston Dynamo and Houston Dash have both rescheduled matches that were set to take place this weekend.
Hurricane Harvey is reportedly bringing upwards of three feet of rain and heavy winds to the Southeast Texas area, and travel around Houston and areas along the Gulf Coast are expected to be difficult.

“Under the circumstances, the clear and obvious decision is to reschedule these matches. The most important thing is the safety of our community,” said Dynamo and Dash president Chris Canetti. “I appreciate the support of MLS, NWSL, Sporting Kansas City and the North Carolina Courage in working through this difficult situation with us. On behalf of the Dynamo, Dash and BBVA Compass Stadium, we wish for everyone’s utmost safety and security throughout the storm.”
The Dynamo were set to take on Sporting KC while the Dash were to face the North Carolina Courage. The Dynamo’s match has been rescheduled to October 11. There’s no rescheduled date for the Dash’s match.
