Countdown continues: BBVA Compass Stadium nears opening

3 Comments

People in Houston are so excited about next week’s opening of BBVA Compass Stadium, they can’t even hold their cameras still. Seriously, look at that fuzzy photo on the right, courtesy of a local news site.

The latest news is of Tuesday’s ribbon cutting ceremony. Lots of people in suits and fancy titles attended, and they brought out those comically big scissors for the ceremony. (Where do you buy those things, anyway?)

More progress comes in the stadium’s Dynamo Team Store, which opens Thursday. For those carrying any odd fears or issues with the color orange, it’s probably not the place for you.

The Dynamo will hold a training session on Saturday at the stadium, open only to season ticket holders.

A “test match” of sorts is set for May 10, a Dynamo Academy team vs. U.S. under-17s. The grand launch is May 12, when Dominic Kinnear’s team faced D.C. United on NBC Sports Network.
