Dynamo Face LA Galaxy for Opening Day Pres. by BBVA on February 29

December 5, 2019 - Major League Soccer (MLS) - Houston Dynamo News Release

HOUSTON - The Houston Dynamo will leap into the 2020 season when they host the LA Galaxy for Opening Day presented by BBVA on Saturday, Feb. 29 at BBVA Stadium, Major League Soccer announced today. The kickoff time for the Opening Day fixture is set for 2:30 p.m. CST.

The club will embark on a new era under the leadership of head coach Tab Ramos, one of the greatest and most decorated players in American soccer history. Ramos, the first player to sign with MLS in 1995 prior to the league's launch in 1996, will lead La Naranja after serving as head coach of the U.S. Under-20 National Team for eight years and leading the U-20s to unprecedented success on the international stage.

The full schedule for the 2020 Dynamo season is expected to be released later this month, and individual match tickets for Opening Day will go on sale early next year. Fans can secure their seats for Opening Day and every match by becoming a Houston Dynamo 365 Member. Dynamo 365 Members receive a number of exclusive benefits, including Members-only loyalty pricing, gifts, privileges and year-round experiences and events. Annual memberships start as low as $30 per month.

During the club's 14-year history, the Dynamo have gone 8-2-4 in home openers and are 6-1-1 in home openers at BBVA Stadium. Last year, the Dynamo opened the 2019 MLS season with a 1-1 draw against Real Salt Lake thanks to a second-half equalizer from striker Mauro Manotas at BBVA Stadium.

The Dynamo will open the 2020 season with a rematch of the 2019 season finale. Houston defeated the Galaxy 4-2 on Decision Day thanks in part to a brace from forward Christian Ramirez. With Ramirez and Manotas leading the charge in conjunction with wingers Alberth Elis and Memo Rodriguez, the Dynamo boast one of the most potent attacking groups in the league. Houston's arsenal will feature a new weapon with the addition Darwin Quintero, who joined the Dynamo via trade in November.
