The Houston Dynamo

The Houston Dynamo have a deal in place for a new stadium to be built and ready for use in April 2012.

Harris County commissioners unanimously approved an agreement Tuesday for a 20,000-seat stadium in partnership with the Major League Soccer team and the city of Houston. The proposal for the $95 million project had been approved last week by Houston City Council.

As part of the agreement, Texas Southern University will use the stadium for its home football games.

re: The Houston Dynamo

For Houston, time for youth movement is now

Sarkodie, Bruin expected to contribute to Dynamo immediately

HOUSTON – The Dynamo introduced their four-man rookie class on Wednesday, the culmination of an offseason that has seen the club lower the average age of its roster from 28 to 24.

As newly drafted Kofi Sarkodie and Will Bruin and Academy signees Josue Soto and Alex Dixon held up their new orange jerseys for photographers at team headquarters, it represented a clear sign to fans and the rest of the league that the club will rely heavily on young players for the first time since coming to Houston five years ago.

“Change is good sometimes,” head coach Dominic Kinnear told reporters. “We went through this type of transition in 2005 in San Jose and we ended up with one of our best rosters the next year.”

Enter Sarkodie and Bruin, two players who were considered difference-makers heading into last week’s SuperDraft. Houston intend for both players to play big roles in the club’s transition in 2011. Both are polished enough to contribute right away, but still have the potential to get better. That combination made them unable to pass up.

Interesting, Robertson Stadium isn't the best stadium in the world but I didn't know the MLS was in the business of building new stadiums. Didn't know they had that type of sway.

Houston Dynamo switch to Eastern Conference

Additions of Portland, Vancouver push Texas franchise east

League officials on Friday announced the highly awaited plans for conference realignment with the inclusion of expansion sides Portland and Vancouver, and the Houston Dynamo will make the shift from the Western Conference to the Eastern Conference.

Both conferences will carry nine teams for the 2011 season, and teams will play each other twice as part of the league’s new balanced 34-game schedule.

Houston were realigned because they were the franchise furthest east in the Western Conference, roughly 100 miles east of in-state rivals FC Dallas.

“With the addition of Portland and Vancouver in 2011, MLS wanted to have two conferences of nine teams each,” MLS President Mark Abbott said. ”The most logical solution was for the Houston Dynamo – the easternmost club in the 2010 Western Conference – to move to the Eastern Conference.”

Dynamo get green light to build stadium
Houston to break ground Saturday, hope to finish by April 2012


HOUSTON – Six years after relocating from San Jose, the Houston Dynamo will finally be able to go forward with plans for a soccer-specific stadium.

On Tuesday, the Houston City Council unanimously approved the Tax Increment Revenue Zone (TIRZ), clearing the final hurdle for the Dynamo to begin construction on their new home.

The prospect of building a soccer-specific stadium was a primary reason for the club to relocate to Houston from San Jose in 2005. Six years later, the feeling is certainly one of better-late-than-never.

“Obviously, it’s a huge step. We moved six years ago to come down here and get a stadium,” said Dynamo midfielder Brad Davis. “It’s taken a little while, but I’m finally happy to say it’s here.”

The approval for the project took major steps forward in the past year, with the club receiving approval on the site and TIRZ from the Harris County Commissioner’s Court.

Stadium dream becomes reality as Dynamo break ground

Houston to begin build immediately, target April 2012 opening


HOUSTON – Building a soccer-specific stadium has been a goal of both the Houston Dynamo and local government officials since the team arrived in Houston at the end of 2005. Saturday’s ceremonial ground-breaking marks the end of the negotiations and beginning for the construction of the only downtown soccer-specific stadium in the United States.

“The Dynamo organization has enjoyed many memorable moments in its first five years, but up until today, this moment has only been a dream,” said Dynamo president Chris Canetti. “Now, our dream is coming true, and with this moment, our very own stadium will soon be a reality. We couldn’t be more excited and thrilled.

Houston beat deadline with Koke, Watson deals

Dynamo say Spanish attacker not DP; Jamaican brings MF depth


HOUSTON – Despite working on tight time schedule, the Houston Dynamo were able to beat the clock and make a last-minute splash in the MLS spring transfer window.

The Dynamo announced two transfer deadline-day deals on Friday for Spanish forward Sergio “Koke” Contreras and Jamaican international midfielder Je-Vaughn Watson.

“We’re excited,” said Dynamo president of business operations Chris Canetti. "We knew we needed to make some moves and that was our desire to get it done before the transfer window."

Preview: El Capitán rivalry renews for struggling Houston, surging FCD

Both team back in action after short week; Dynamo hold all-time edge in Texas series


The Texas derby for “El Capitán” is again renewed when the Houston Dynamo play host to FC Dallas on Saturday evening at Robertson Stadium. Houston has not been a place of much success for Dallas, who won there for the first time ever in their last meeting. Both teams come off midweek games on the road, the Dynamo falling 1-0 at the LA Galaxy, while FC Dallas extended their club-record shutout streak in a 1-0 win at Seattle Sounders FC.

Dynamo add Honduran international forward Carlo Costly
29-year-old forward joins club on loan from Mexican side Atlas


HOUSTON — After months of scouting for a potential impact player, the Houston Dynamo announced on Thursday they have signed Honduran international forward Carlo Costly.

Despite reports that Costly had been released by Atlas last week, the forward comes to Houston as part of a loan deal with Mexican first-division side. The terms of the deal were not disclosed, but MLSsoccer.com has confirmed that Costly will not count as a Designated Player.

Dynamo reinforce midfield with signing of Luiz Camargo
Brazilian central midfielder joins Houston on loan from Club Paraná



HOUSTON — After striking a loan deal last week for forward Carlo Costly, the Houston Dynamo reinforced their central midfield with the signing of Brazilian Luiz Camargo on Tuesday.

While terms of the deal were not disclosed, MLSsoccer.com confirmed that, like Costly, Camargo is coming to Houston on loan.

The 24-year-old joins the Dynamo from Clube Paraná, who currently sit in fourth place in the Brazilian second division, and has the characteristics of being able to contribute on both sides of the ball. His first day to participate in team activities is dependent on the approval of his P-1 visa and obtaining an international transfer certificate.

The move makes sense on a few levels for Houston. The club has undergone significant personnel changes with trades and injuries affecting the club in recent weeks. With the team keen to reinforce its roster, bringing the Brazilian into the fold was an easy decision

Dynamo pound Monterrey in decidedly unfriendly match

Houston come out on top in card-filled, physical "friendly"


HOUSTON — In what was anything but a friendly match, the Houston Dynamo downed Monterrey, 3-0, a physical, card-filled affair on Sunday night.

Houston got goals from Cam Weaver, Brad Davis, and Jason Garey, but when it was all over, the major plotline showed up on the disciplinary report. The match saw 10 cautions — eight yellows, two straight reds and four ejections — in total, including two ejections before halftime.

20 sections sold out in new Dynamo Stadium
Season tickets go on sale to general public on Tuesday



The Houston Dynamo announced today that 20 sections in the team’s new stadium have sold out for the 2012 season through season ticket purchases. Seats will go on sale to the general public on Tuesday, September 20.

“I’d like to thank the fans for their tremendous support,” said Dynamo president Chris Canetti. “Their overall and early response represents the excitement that surrounds the team right now. The demand and the urgency have been at an all-time high with seats moving at a brisk pace. I am looking forward to an even greater response next week when seats go on public sale.”

The club’s premium seats have sold out, as have field-side seats, two of the three sections set aside for supporters’ groups, and six sections in the stadium’s 100 level. Seats still remain throughout the 100 level, including at midfield on the east side of the stadium, and in most of the 200 level

Houston Dynamo Owner Oscar De La Hoya
Chartering a Bus and Joining Supporters in Stands at MLS Cup



After his gold-medal conquest at the 1992 Barcelona Olympics, Oscar De La Hoya grew accustomed to being the main event at some of the biggest fights of his generation. Even when not competing, the Golden Boy has usually been close to the action.

But Sunday night at the Home Depot Center in Carson, Calif., De La Hoya will savor a different perspective as he cheers for his Dynamo in the MLS Cup against the Los Angeles Galaxy.

De La Hoya doesn’t just want to paint his face orange and sit with the fans. He also is chartering a bus to take members of the club’s four supporters groups – El Battallon, the Texian Army, La Bateria and Brick Wall – to the game and back.

Impact select Ching, future unclear
Dynamo captain has said he would rather retire than leave the club



The Montreal Impact stunned Major League Soccer by selecting Dynamo captain Brian Ching in Wednesday's Expansion Draft, casting doubt on Ching's future.

A fixture in the Houston lineup since moving with the club from San Jose prior to the 2006 season, Ching is the club's all-time leading scorer and wore the captain's armband for head coach Dominic Kinnear over the last two seasons. Limited significantly by injuries in 2011 and due a significant salary in 2012, Ching was left unprotected by the Dynamo when lists were announced on Monday
