HOUSTON (Thursday, Nov. 16, 2023) – Ahead of the match, the Dynamo will also bring back “Orange Avenue”, a free pre-match fan party, located on Rusk Street on the west side of Shell Energy Stadium. In the buildup to kickoff, fans can enjoy music from EZ Band and DJ Nemesis, while enjoying local food trucks and a cold beer in the Bud Light Beer Garden. Fans can also anticipate special appearances from Dynamo leadership and alumni.
Additionally, upon entry to the stadium, all fans will receive a Houston Dynamo playoffs, powered by Shell Energy, rally towel.
As part of a fierce historical rivalry, this is the sixth time that Houston and Kansas City will meet in the Audi MLS Cup Playoffs and the first time since the 2017 season. The Dynamo defeated Sporting 1-0 at home in the Wild Card game in 2017 and improved their series record to 4-1 against Kansas City in the postseason. Both teams met earlier this year in a knockout tournament with Houston securing a 1-0 victory at Shell Energy Stadium in the Round of 32 of the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup on May 10.
