History

After five years of negotiations, BBVA Compass Stadium, Houston's newest downtown stadium, finally celebrated its groundbreaking on February 5, 2011. When the 22,000-seat venue opened in mid-2012, the players, coaches, employees, and fans finally had a home to call their own.
 
The stadium was designed by Populous, the architecture firm behind new Yankee Stadium in New York, as an iconic piece of architecture that echoes both the rich industrial heritage of the urban East Downtown site and the Dynamo's aspirations to be an elite brand in North American soccer.
 
The stadium is located closer to downtown than any other American Major League Soccer stadium, while its clear sightlines and intimate setting make it unique among Houston stadiums. Combine those factors with the passion of Houston soccer fans and the "forever orange" colors of the Dynamo, and gameday at BBVA Compass Stadium is like no other.
 
Situated on a six-block urban site near Houston landmarks including Minute Maid Park, the George R. Brown Convention Center, and the Toyota Center, BBVA Compass Stadium is easily accessible for patrons from the entire Houston metropolitan area. The stadium is recognizable thanks in part to its distinctive fa├žade featuring Dynamo orange coloring along with a geometrically-shaped tessellated aluminum mesh which encompasses the stadium while also providing air circulation throughout the building.
 
Inside the stadium, fans utilize the wide concourse to access both lower and upper seating sections. Fans throughout the stadium, from field-side seats to luxury suites to upper-bowl sections, feel like part of the action thanks to the intimate feel and close proximity of all seating areas to the pitch.
