Houston’s Beautiful New Pro Soccer Stadium

After playing on Houston area college and high school football fields for nearly ten years, Houston’s Major League Soccer team, the Dynamo, finally has a brand new state-of-the-art home field of its own.

The Dynamo moved to Houston in 2005 from San Jose, California, where they were known as, what else, the Earthquake.  They moved because they couldn’t get public funding for a stadium in that area.

They came to Houston to capitalize on the public support that led to publicly financed stadiums for the Astros, Texans and Rockets. That came true, and now, seven years later, the Dynamo finally have their own 22,000 seat soccer stadium just east of downtown Houston.  They play their first official game Saturday night.

The Dynamo are one of Major League Soccer’s best and most successful teams.  They’ve won two MLS Cup championships and three conference championships in their first six seasons, and has qualified to represent the United States in international competition five times, including the 2012-13 CONCACAF Champions League.

FYI:  naming rights for the stadium were sold to the multinational Spanish banking group Banco Bilbao Vizcaya and Argentaria, (BBVA), and the American banking group Compass Bank.
