Texas supporters groups aid Houston relief effort

Supporters groups representing FC Dallas (Dallas Beer Guardians) and San Antonio FC (210 Alliance) are supporting their colleagues at the Texian Army (Houston Dynamo) in relief efforts for victims of Hurricane Harvey on the Texas coast.



The Dallas Beer Guardians are accepting donations at Peticolas Brewing Company in Dallas and at their tailgate party before the FC Dallas home game Saturday against the New York Red Bulls.

Both the 210 Alliance (next away watch party) and Texian Army (Sept. 9 tailgate party) have set up plans for drop-off locations, and all three groups have established online options to donate money.

-- The Kraft family, owner of the New England Revolution and NFL Patriots, is offering to match all funds donated to the American Red Cross in support of Hurricane Harvey Disaster Relief Fund up to $1 million.
 
The Patriots won the 2017 Super Bowl in Houston and the Revs played the Dynamo twice (2006 and 2007) in MLS Cup.

"We are eager to provide our support and hope by matching donations we will encourage more people to give to help ease the recovery of our displaced neighbors," Revs investor/operator Robert Kraft said. "And we wish all of our friends at the Houston Dynamo and their fans the best during this time of need."

On Monday night, Fox Sports 1 soccer analyst and former U.S. national team midfielder Stuart Holden discussed plans for a soccer charity match BBVA Compass Stadium, the Dynamo home, later in the year.
