Some good news for Houston Dynamo fans as the city voted to spend up $15.5 million for land to use for the Dynamo’s future stadium in the city.
City Council voted today to spend $15.5 million to purchase five downtown blocks, a site being eyed for a Houston Dynamo soccer stadium. The council also voted to obtain a sixth block by swapping some city-owned land.
The more the city gets involved for this stadium deal, the more I think something is going to happen. It seems as though they city is eager to keep them in the city and apart of their community.
I’m sure the Dynamo’s majority owner AEG will be able to still put up enough money to build a quality stadium on this site if this all goes as planned.
The ball is rolling and that is a good thing because I would hate to see this club have to move out again over a failed stadium situation. I don’t think that will happen this time around though to this club. Something should happen soon as far as AEG is concerned on getting the pieces together to present a stadium plan and actually begin construction on a stadium in Houston. When that happens you can bet that it will be a quality stadium, one that Dynamo fans will be happy with.
