The Houston Dynamo will return to full team training sessions at Houston Sports Park on Thursday, the club announced today.
“This is another major step for the team, particularly now that we know when we’ll return to play next month in Orlando. Our players and staff have been working very hard both on and off the field over the last three months to get to this point,” said Dynamo Senior Vice President and General Manager Matt Jordan. “I want to highlight our Club medical and athletic training staff for their hard work in preparing the health and safety protocols throughout this process. Our players’ and staff’s safety has been our primary concern from Day One and will continue to be as we move forward. It's been a lot of hard work collectively from all our departments to get to this point and we are eager to get started."
Houston’s training plan was created by the Club medical staff in keeping with local health protocols, and has been reviewed and approved by Major League Soccer. Dynamo players and staff will be tested regularly for COVID-19 as part of the league protocol and team training plan. Training sessions will be mandatory for all players as the Dynamo prepare for the MLS is Back Tournament in Orlando, Florida this summer.
