The Houston Dynamo and BBVA Compass join together to help celebrate the career of Dynamo legend Brian Ching in a special testimonial match to honor his service to the club.

In a soccer tradition, the testimonial match will honor Ching’s career as he retires from professional soccer at the end of the 2013 season. The game marks the first testimonial match in Major League Soccer history and will feature some of the biggest stars from the Dynamo, MLS, and the U.S. Men’s National Team.

Proceeds from the match will benefit Ching’s charitable initiative, The House That Ching Built, and Habitat For Humanity. The Brian Ching Testimonial Match, presented by BBVA Compass, will be held on Friday, December 13 at BBVA Compass Stadium.
