Introducing BBVA Compass Stadium

Introducing BBVA Compass Stadium

Just one of the many exciting things happening to Houston lately is the opening of the BBVA Compass Stadium - the new home of your Houston Dynamo.

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 Dynamo website:

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.

For more information about the stadium, and to see photos and video of the construction site as it's being completed, visit their website.

And, before we forget, GO DYNAMO! Don't forget, you can buy your MLS tickets at any of your local Fiesta grocery stores as just one of the many additional services we offer our customers.
