Houston Dynamo have announced plans for their own stadium, scheduled to open in 2011.
â€śWe think itâ€™s about an $80 to $85 million stadium. (It will have) 21,000 seats, but nothing fancy though. Itâ€™s very functional,â€ť said Dynamo GM Oliver Luck.
â€śItâ€™s going to be much more fan friendly in terms of concessions and restrooms and some of those things that we just donâ€™t really have over at Robertson Stadium. Most importantly, itâ€™s going to be much easier to get to in terms of the parking and access. A rail line will literally run right next to the stadium."
With many MLS clubs starting to own their soccer specific stadiums often with the help of taxpayers â€śNo oneâ€™s taxes are increased. Itâ€™s just taking the increased taxes, some of that money and allocating that to help build the stadium,â€ť said Houston council member Peter Brown.
