The Dynamo are currently without an affiliate in US Soccerâ€™s third tier competition but president Chris Canetti is confident something can be arranged for season 2014 and beyond rather than placing its own team in the league.
â€śAt this point, weâ€™re ultimately leaning in the direction of going with an affiliate,â€ť Canetti said.
â€śWe believe at this point that's the most effective and efficient way of going about it rather than having our own USL PRO franchise at this point.
â€śQuite frankly, itâ€™s economics. When you have your own team, youâ€™re wholly responsible for the franchise. Iâ€™m not sure, with the stage weâ€™re at as a club, thatâ€™s a burden we need to take on.
â€śDown the road, having our own USL PRO franchise continues to be an option. In the short-term, 2014, an affiliate is the way weâ€™re leaning. Continuing to determine whether starting our own franchise is viable will continue to take place.â€ť
