After the opening match, the Dynamo host
three matches in April and three more in May, including a game against the
defending MLS Cup champion Colorado Rapids on May 4, a May 21 match against the
New York Red Bulls, and a May 28 showdown with rival FC Dallas, both at
Robertson Stadium.

The summer schedule is currently
highlighted by a July 30 home game against the Seattle Sounders and an August
14 match against the Portland Timbers. The Dynamo close the season on Sunday,
October 23, hosting Landon Donovan, David Beckham, and the defending MLS
Supporters’ Shield winners, the Los Angeles Galaxy. Past Dynamo-Galaxy matches
to close the regular season resulted in sellout crowds in 2007, 2008, and 2009.

single game tickets are not yet available, fans can purchase tickets to all
games via Dynamo season tickets, with 10-game and 5-game plans also available.
