Celebrities playing in 'Kick In For Houston' soccer match for Hurricane Harvey relief

The pitch at BBVA Compass Stadium will be used once more before 2017 ends for a one-night, celebrity soccer match to support Hurricane Harvey relief.

The home of the Houston Dynamo will host the Kick In For Houston benefit on Saturday to raise money for people affected by the storm's historic flooding.

All ticket sale proceeds go toward the Dynamo Charities and benefit the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund.

The participants of the special match include superstars and legends of soccer, as well as World Series champion Alex Bregman of the Houston Astros.
