Houston Dynamo Celebrate 2015 Bud Light Good Sport Designated Driver Challenge Win


The Houston Dynamo were recognized on August 26, 2016 for winning the 2015 Bud Light Good Sport Designated Driver Challenge against FC Dallas. Representatives from the Dynamo, Silver Eagle Distributors and TEAM Coalition gathered for the celebration.

The Bud Light Good Sport Designated Driver Challenge tracked the number of fans who pledged to be designated drivers at the 2015 regular season home games for the both teams. Each fan who pledged to be a designated driver at BBVA Compass Stadium earned the Dynamo 3 points in the challenge. Fans also had the opportunity to show support of their team’s responsibility efforts on social media to earn additional points. The Dynamo finished with 1,319 points compared to FC Dallas with 277.

The Dynamo, Anheuser-Busch, Silver Eagle Distributing and TEAM have been working together successfully for the Bud Light Good Sport designated driver program for several seasons.

The Bud Light Good Sport designated driver program is just one component of the fan behavior initiatives offered by the Houston Dynamo at BBVA Compass Stadium. Other components include:

  • A Fan Code of Conduct posted in and around BBVA Compass Stadium
  • Certification of employees in effective alcohol management training
  • Alcohol service policies including ID checks for all fans, no more than two alcoholic beverages per person per transaction and alcohol cut-off at the 75 minute mark
