    Editor's note: The preseason game between the Dallas Cowboys and Houston Texans Thursday night was canceled.

    After Houston Texans vs Dallas Cowboys tickets went on sale for $25 — benefiting victims of Hurricane Harvey — some people have been re-selling the tickets online for a higher price.

    Some of the websites selling the tickets caught on to what was going on.

    Ticketcity.com blocked the game tickets from being sold on their website.

    StubHub.com also noticed what was happening, and stopped selling the tickets.

    In a tweet, StubHub stated, “With further consideration, StubHub has decided to not allow listings for the Cowboys/Texans game and will donate 100% of the profits.”

    If you would like to buy tickets, you can purchase them for $25 at AT&T Stadium or Ticketmaster.com.

    All proceeds will be donated to the United Way of Greater Houston Relief Fund that supports the efforts of the American Red Cross and The Salvation Army for Harvey relief and recovery.

    Kick-off is scheduled for 7 p.m. Thursday night.

    NBC 5 and Kroger are teaming up to get help with the relief effort for the damage caused by Hurricane Harvey. Visit your neighborhood Kroger and make a monetary donation to the American Red Cross at Kroger's check-out registers. All of the money will go to the Red Cross Disaster Relief. The American Red Cross is working around the clock to help those in need by providing food, shelter and emotional support for the people whose lives have been disrupted. Visit RedCross.org or call 1-800-RED-CROSS for more information on the relief efforts.
