On the eve of opening their new BBVA Compass Stadium, the Houston Dynamo, their fans, and their city have been looking back at the club’s history. Into the seventh season, it’s not a comparatively long history, but if things had been different, MLS Commissioner Don Garber said on Friday, the Dynamo might have been an MLS original.

Despite some late heroics, it was that kind of night for the Houston Dynamo in their 1-0 loss to the New York Red Bulls on Wednesday night.

After giving up an early goal to Kenny Cooper, the Dynamo found themselves searching for an equalizer for the balance of the match. And while they controlled the tempo and put pressure on the home team, they were left empty-handed.

HARRISON, N.J. – Another clean sheet, another win for the New York Red Bulls. Thanks to an early goal from Kenny Cooper and another stout defensive effort defensively, the Red Bulls defeated the Houston Dynamo 1-0 at Red Bull Arena on Wednesday night.

The win was New York’s third straight victory by that scoreline and second consecutive without Thierry Henry, who is currently recovering from a hamstring injury. It also pushed the Red Bulls, now 6-3-1, ahead of rivals D.C. United and into second place in the Eastern Conference.

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.
