RAUL YZAGUIRRE SCHOLARS K - 9TH SCHOLARS PARTICIPATING IN DYNAMO SOCCER CLINIC!
The clinic is part of the festivities leading up to the July 24 BBVA Classic which will pit the Dynamo against Club América at the newly-renamed BBVA Stadium as part of the inaugural Leagues Cup tournament. That match is scheduled to kick off at 7:30 p.m. CDT with tickets starting at $20.
“The BBVA Classic has been a longstanding commitment between the bank and the Dynamo to reach beyond the pitch and make a lasting impact in our communities,” said BBVA USA Texas Regional Executive Jeff Dudderar. “The soccer clinic is one of the many ways this initiative accomplishes that and creates opportunities. I’m excited for these kids and their opportunity to pick up tips and advice from some of the game’s best.”
In June, BBVA unified its brand and launched a new logo across its global footprint as it advances in its efforts to offer its customers the best products and services, in an increasingly digital environment. As a result, the home of the Houston Dynamo and Dash was renamed to BBVA Stadium during an unveiling, where the first annual BBVA Classic was also announced.
The Tejano Center for Community Concerns was named as the game’s charitable beneficiary. A dozen students from the Raul Yzaguirre Schools for Success Elite STEM Primary Academy’s girls and boys soccer teams attended the ceremony and were recognized during the press conference. The academy is one of the various programs the center offers to fulfill its mission.
