This weekend not only brought the annual Houston Dash Open Practice to BBVA Stadium, but also the return of the annual Dynamo Charities Fire Sale.
The popular annual event returned to BBVA Stadium for the second consecutive year after being held at Houston Sports Park previously, and Saturday’s event set records for turnout and charitable revenue, despite the need for additional health and safety protocols to protect everyone involved.
Held in tandem with the Dash Open Practice, the Fire Sale saw more than 325 people come through the gates at BBVA Stadium over the course of seven hours. Dynamo and Dash fans combined to purchase more than $32,000 worth of team-issued and game-worn apparel and merchandise.
Among the notable and unique items available at Saturday’s Fire Sale were banners used during the 2020 Houston Dash NWSL Challenge Cup Championship Parade and chairs pulled from the Dynamo locker room that were used by fans’ favorite players on match days. Dozens of pairs of player-worn shorts, jerseys, training tops and warmups filled fans’ shopping bags, as did unique items like bobbleheads and team-branded blankets and wine glasses.
One hundred percent of all sales from the event will go to Dynamo Charities, allowing the organization to continue its ongoing support of initiatives focused on youth soccer, youth enrichment and cancer awareness.
