MLS Dynamo Want NWSL Franchise, BBVA Compass Stadium Would Serve As Home

The MLS Dynamo are "in talks about securing an expansion franchise" in the NWSL, according to Jose de Jesus Ortiz of the HOUSTON CHRONICLE. Dynamo President Chris Canetti said, "We're involved in the initial stages of this process and hope to learn more about the league and the opportunity over the next few weeks." He added, "I think that in the Greater Houston area and even beyond, there's a very strong participation level for girls soccer. It's a completely different relationship when young girls watch women." Ortiz noted if the Dynamo "finalize their quest to land an NWSL expansion club, that team would play at BBVA Compass Stadium and train at Houston Amateur Sports Park, just as the men's club does" (CHRON.com, 11/19).
