After being forced to cancel their Dynamo Charities Cup match against Manchester City due to weather, the Houston Dynamo announced Friday that the match has been rescheduled with a new opponent, Santos Laguna. The Liga MX Clausura champions will play the Houston Dynamo on October 10, 2015 at 7:00 PM CT.
"I think it's a fantastic occasion for everybody. Most importantly, it's the Dynamo Charities Cup and the fact that people that benefit from that is enormous," Dynamo head coach Owen Coyle said via release. "It's great for the Houston community, not only to see the Dynamo team that represents them but to bring Santos Laguna, the Mexican champions, into Houston will be a magnificent occasion."
Tickets that were part of the season ticket package for the Dynamo Charities Cup match against Manchester City F.C. will be valid for this match. Season Ticket Members who purchased additional tickets for the original match will have the option to exchange the value of their purchase for any other Dynamo home game in 2015, or for additional tickets for the rescheduled Dynamo Charities Cup game.
While many Dynamo fans were glad to finally have the game rescheduled fans of the USMNT and Mexico quickly realized that the game would be taking place the same day at the playoff game between the two National teams. The playoff game will determine who will be representing CONCACAF at the 2017 Confederations Cup. That game had originally been scheduled for October 9 but was recently moved to October 10.
