Premium seats go on sale to general public

The Houston Dynamo have announced that premium seats for the new Dynamo stadium are now on sale to the general public. About 90 percent of the roughly 1,100 seats available in the President’s Club and VIP Club have already been reserved with deposits made by current season ticket holders.

Dynamo president Chris Canetti and captain Brian Ching were on hand at the stadium site Tuesday to see steel trusses delivered and make the announcement. Ching has already purchased six premium seats for the new stadium for his use in the future.

“We’ve been talking about this stadium for about five years, and to see progress is pretty special,” said Ching, the club’s all-time leading scorer. “I’m so excited that I already bought six premium seats, so I’m looking forward to having good seats here when my playing days are done to hopefully watch the Dynamo win a couple more championships.”
