The Dynamo moved to Houston 2 years ago and they’ve won the MLS title for 2 years straight, making them the most successful pro team in Houston’s history. The games are a blast, but they had to play in Robertson Stadium at UofHouston. The statium they’re building is a modest one, seating about 22,000, but it’ll get a lot of revenue from concerts, etc.
The concert industry is dead. And between the Woodlands, Verizon, and Toyota Center, there are more than enough venues for Clear Channel to host their concerts at.
The Rockets also took the NBA Championship 2 years in a row. This soccer stadium may be for "current performance" but they are not the only team to accomplish this task in the city's history.
