On Saturday, BBVA Compass Stadium will come to life as the Houston Dynamo host D.C. United in the first match at Houston's sparkling new soccer-specific stadium (3:30 pm CT, NBC Sports Network).

But as everyone comes together in downtown Houston, there will be two men in attendance who will have wider smiles than most on their faces: former Dynamo president Oliver Luck (above left) and his successor Chris Canetti (above right), both of whom played an integral part in bringing a very complex and diverse deal together.

The Houston Dynamo are preparing to enter a new era with the opening of BBVA Compass Stadium on May 12. As the event approaches, Walker End Houston, an independent supporters association, is attempting to do the same in the stands.

The association was created to bridge the gap between supporters groups and fans that Chris Smink - a member of the organization’s executive council - called “independents” to create a fan base that acts under a unified banner to support the club.

On May 12, the Houston Dynamo will open the brand new BBVA Compass Stadium with a home match against D.C. United. It’s an event that the club is getting understandably excited about.

But before they get to open their proverbial presents, there’s the small matter of a road trip to take on the New York Red Bulls on May 9.

Saturday’s open training session at BBVA Compass Stadium was the closest anyone – fans, media or players – have come to experiencing what the stadium could be like on game day.

After the inaugural hour-and-a-half training session, the Dynamo took the time to put words to their first on-field run through, an experience that didn’t disappoint. The facility was flawless, the pitch was picture perfect and the first reviews were nothing short of awe inspiring.

It has been more than five weeks since Colin Clark had to worry about preparing for a match. But after bye weeks turned a three-game suspension into what will amount to a month-and-a-half out of action, the Houston Dynamo midfielder is ready to get back into game mode.

You will rarely hear Houston Dynamo head coach Dominic Kinnear overreact to a performance, good or bad. That was again the case after a rough defensive performance against D.C. United in last Saturday’s 3-2 loss.

D.C. got the better of the Dynamo to record three goals, with two coming in the air, as Houston struggled to contain United’s attack. While it was not the ideal performance, the Dynamo boss stood behind his back four on Monday, proclaiming his confidence that the group will get the job done.

The welcome mat is almost out at BBVA Compass Stadium.

With a number of elected officials and dignitaries in attendance, the Houston Dynamo on Tuesday officially cut the ribbon at their new home, celebrating the completion – or near completion, since there are still minor details to take care of – of a project that took 14 months to build but nearly seven years to complete.
