Houston Dynamo and FC Dallas have come together for some friendly competition all in the name of charity as the two teams are holding auctions ahead of the Texas Derby and the team that raises the most will gain $1000 for their team charity from the opposing team.
The two teams will be using the DASH Auction App with the auctions starting on Friday at noon and running through to the 80th minute of the match on Sunday. The two teams have created their own collection of items for fans to bid on and all the proceeds will also go to the respective charity.
Houston Dynamo have several autographed items, with a jersey signed by the whole team, an Alberth Elis signed game worn jersey and Tyler Deric signed gloves. There will also be a unique experience up for the bidding with a fan able to bid on a Starting 11 experience, the winner watching warmups from the pitch and taking part in the pre-match photo as if they were part of the starting 11.
FC Dallas are not being outdone, also giving out the same starting 11 experience for a fan and an autographed jersey. FC Dallas will also be giving away a signed ball, an his and hers package with two shirts, cups, and bags, the other unique item will be a ball used in the derby.
While the competition on the pitch will be fierce, both teams will no doubt be hoping that the fans come together and bid on these items to raise lots of money for their soccer charities.
