The Dynamo Charities Cup is an annual friendly match putting the Houston Dynamo against an international opponent, with a portion of the match’s proceeds donated to charity.


Each team will face each other only once at the host team's venue. A max of 10 substitutions are allowed; re-entry is not allowed unless a goalkeeper injury is sustained. If the match is tied after 90 minutes, a penalty shootout will be implemented.


Only one city has served as the venue of the Dynamo Charities Cup. The Dynamo began play in their new stadium in May of the 2012 season.
