Houston Gael Exhibition Match Cancelled
With enormous regret I have to tell you all that due to today's downpour downtown we have been told our match tonight cannot go ahead due to concerns over the pitch at BBVA Compass Stadium. Many of you bought and sold several tickets and I want to thank you very much for your efforts. So what now?
· All tickets issued and bought are valid for the Dynamo vs. Montreal Impact game tonight. I for one will be attending and as long as the weather remains acceptable I encourage you all to go if you can and we can still have a great time there;
· We WILL be getting to play our game at the Dynamo Stadium but this will be arranged at a later date. When this does happen we will get 350 complimentary tickets for this game also. So really we're all getting two match tickets for the price of one.
· We will meet at Shay McElroy's as normal tonight for the St. Patrick's Day festivities.
This is one of those things where we all feel really bad but unfortunately we had no control over it. Thanks everybody for everything you did leading up to this weekend. Our video is still being shown at halftime and there will be an announcement about the club also. As I said this is a postponement not a cancellation. We will absolutely be getting to play this game at some point just not tonight.
Thanks again everyone,
