HOUSTON (AP) -- The Houston Dynamo will wear uniforms with Virginia Tech's school colors in an April 29 game as a tribute to those who died in Monday's shootings.

The maroon jerseys will then be auctioned off, and the funds will be donated to the school's Hokie Spirit Memorial Fund.

Student Cho Seung-Hui is accused of killing 32 people in a shooting rampage on campus Monday before committing suicide.

"The event at Virginia Tech is a touching tragedy," Dynamo president and general manager Oliver Luck said. "This tribute is the Dynamo family's attempt to assist in the healing process in the Blacksburg community."

The 2006 MLS champions will donate $8 of each ticket sold to the game against the Chicago Fire. When ordering tickets at either houstondynamo.com or ticketmaster.com, fans must enter the code "VT" for the donation to be made.
