Just one of the many exciting things happening to Houston lately
is the opening of the BBVA Compass Stadium - the new home of your
Set to open in just a few months in Downtown Houston (near
Minute Maid Park), this new state of the art stadium will be a HUGE
addition to the culture of Houston - not just in sports, but in the
entire community. We are so excited for their grand opening.
Here is a little info about the new stadium taken from the
BBVA Compass Stadium will be a state-of-the-art, open-air
stadium designed to host Dynamo matches as well as additional
sporting and concert events. When it opens in 2012, the 22,000-seat
stadium will be the first soccer-specific stadium in Major League
Soccer located in a city's downtown district.
Spectators will be able to experience unobstructed views from
both the lower and upper seating bowls, which are supported by a
single concourse. The concourse provides full access around the
stadium with easy access to concession and toilet facilities. The
fan experience will be enhanced by modern sound and video elements
throughout the stadium. Fully integrated broadcast facilities will
allow viewers and listeners to feel part of the atmosphere.
Aside from Major League Soccer and international soccer matches,
BBVA Compass Stadium will also host Texas Southern University
football, concerts, boxing matches, and much more. With its
downtown location, the new stadium will be a part of a true Stadium
District, which already features Minute Maid Park and Toyota
Center, as well as the George R. Brown Convention Center, Discovery
Green, and The House of Blues.
