On Saturday, the Houston Dynamo will play its first game in a brand-new stadium built specifically for soccer. It's called the BBVA Compass Stadium. The 22,000 seat venue was built in less than a year-and-a-half on a plot of land just east of downtown Houston. The $95 million price tag was split between the City of Houston, Harris County, and the team, with Dynamo owners picking up about two-thirds of the cost. KUHF's David Pitman dropped by to talk with stadium General Manager Doug Hall about the speed at which this stadium was completed, what the parking situation will be like — with so many venues now downtown, and to ask about the chances of the stadium earning a more user-friendly nickname.
