Houston Dynamo venue renamed BBVA Stadium

Major League Soccer’s Houston Dynamo and the Houston Dash of the National Women’s Soccer League will now play in the BBVA Stadium following the venue’s name change. The 22,000-capacity multipurpose stadium was previously known as the BBVA Compass Stadium.

The name change follows a global brand refresh for title sponsor BBVA Group, a Spanish-based banking firm.

New signage at the downtown Houston stadium was unveiled in a ceremonial press conference on Thursday. It was also announced that the BBVA Compass Dynamo Charities Cup, an annual friendly soccer competition between the Dynamo and an international opponent, would be renamed the BBVA Classic.

In 2011, BBVA signed a 10-year naming-rights deal at the stadium, worth a reported $20m.
