The Houston Dynamo is inaugurating its new home/stadium--the BBVA Compass Stadium--on Saturday, May 12, 3:30 p.m. CT, against D.C. United in what would be the location's first MLS match.
Although, the new stadium is Major League Soccer's latest venue, for the Dynamo it's more than a venue, it's a 'dream come true'.
FoxNews Latino recently asked Brad Davis, mid-fielder for the Dynamo, his thoughts on the new stadium to which Davis responded, "The fans were great from the beginning, but we always heard about a stadium and never knew when it would come or if we'd still be around when it finally got here. We're glad it's here now."
Since the Dynamo, formerly known as the San Jose Earthquakes, moved from San Jose to Houston the 'Orange Crush' has been playing its home games at Robertson Stadium on the University of Houston campus.
The aging stadium was renovated several times since it was first build in 1941, but in December 2012 it will be demolished and replaced by a new University of Houston $120 million football stadium.
The same way Robertson Stadium is turning the pages in its history so will the Dynamo be doing on Saturday when it once again plays its first game in the state-of-the-art BBVA Compass Stadium, a stadium with a seating capacity of 20,000 and a total building cost of $95 million.
