Red Stars take on Houston Dash in Match to Set Playoff Positioning
A new chapter in Chicago Red Stars history will be written this weekend when they take on the Houston Dash at Toyota Park in Bridgeview, IL on Sunday, September 6th at 4pm. It’s not just their regular season finale, there’s also an even bigger opportunity at stake. A combination of World Cup stars and battle-proven roster players lead the Red Stars’ charge toward not just a win, but their first ever appearance in the National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) playoffs. While their ultimate opponent will not be known until sometime this weekend, the bottom line is simple: A win secures home field advantage for your Chicago Red Stars in the first round of the NWSL Playoffs.
Highlighting the star studded match, where fans will actually be able to get their picture taken with the Women’s World Cup Trophy, US Women’s National Team (USWNT) members Christen Press, Julie Johnston and Lori Chalupny lead the Red Stars against the Dash, led by fellow USWNT members Carli Lloyd, Meghan Klingenberg, and Morgan Brian.
