Houston Dynamo is a professional soccer club based in Houston, Texas that plays in Major League Soccer. The team was created on December 15, 2005 when the San Jose Earthquakes were relocated, due to San Jose’s failure to secure a soccer-specific stadium. Even though all of San Jose’s players and coaches moved to Houston, the team’s name, logo, history, and statistics were not transferred. The team colors are orange, white, and black.
Club owner, Anschutz Entertainment Group, is hoping to finalize an agreement to construct a 20,000 to 25,000-seat soccer specific stadium on the site of Houston Independent School District’s Delmar Stadium, located at the intersection of I-610 and U.S. 290. The company would like the school district to help share the costs of building the $65 to $80 million stadium. In the event that this plan went through, the current Delmar Stadium would be razed and replaced with the soccer-specific venue. Like the Pizza Hut Park stadium agreement in Frisco for FC Dallas, the stadium would be shared with the school district’s high school football teams and the facility would be surrounded by community soccer fields.
