FC Dallas to honor Bobby Rhine vs. Red Bull New York

September, 14, 2011
MLS Commissioner Don Garber joins Brek Shea, Doug Quinn and members of Rhine family in leading March to the Match

FC Dallas players, staff and fans will join together to pay tribute to Bobby Rhine at Saturday’s match versus Red Bull New York with black arm bands and a moment of silence, as well as a video tribute to the beloved player and broadcaster at halftime.

Rhine’s initials will be painted on the field and a special banner will hang from his regular broadcast booth during the match. Defender Zach Loyd, who has worn Rhine’s No. 19 for the past two seasons, will change to No. 12 for the remainder of the season.

Brek Shea will join MLS Commissioner Don Garber, FC Dallas President and CEO Doug Quinn and members of the Rhine Family in leading the pre-game March to the Match, which will leave from The Londoner Frisco at 7 p.m. Fans can collect their own black wristbands in Rhine’s honor at the gates in exchange for a donation (amount of the fan’s choice) in Rhine’s honor to the FC Dallas Foundation. Collected funds will be put in a trust for Rhine’s two children.

The game, presented by Subaru with associate sponsors Cash America and Gruma, is also a celebration of Hispanic Heritage Night with Latin music in the Budweiser Beer Garden and regular Beer Garden specials of $2 beer and $4 wine and Hornitos margaritas.
