BBVA Compass Stadium is Houston’s newest downtown stadium. The 22,000-seat venue opened in mid-2012.
The stadium was designed by Populous, the architecture firm behind new Yankee Stadium in New York, as an iconic piece of architecture that echoes both the rich industrial heritage of the urban East Downtown site and the Dynamo’s aspirations to be an elite brand in North American soccer.
The stadium is located closer to downtown while its clear intimate setting make it unique among Houston stadiums. Situated on a six-block urban site near Houston landmarks including Minute Maid Park, the George R. Brown Convention Center, and the Toyota Center, BBVA Compass Stadium is easily accessible for patrons from the entire Houston metropolitan area. The stadium is recognizable thanks in part to its distinctive façade featuring Dynamo orange coloring along with a geometrically-shaped tessellated aluminum mesh which encompasses the stadium while also providing air circulation throughout the building.
