Houston Dynamo History

The Dynamo have an interesting dual history that pre-dates their arrival in MLS in 2006.

In 1984, there was a team in the United Soccer League (not related to the current USL) called the Houston Dynamos. That team went on to the first, and only, USL league championship series., losing to a Fort Lauderdale Sun team that featured Teófilo Cubillas and other NASL veterans who did not relocate with the Strikers to Minnesota that season. The Dynamo became an independent side ahead of the USL folding in 1985, and joined the Lone Star Soccer Alliance in 1987, where they would play until 1991.

The actual Dynamo MLS franchise itself originally gained life as the second San Jose Earthquakes, who themselves were initially known as the San Jose Clash from 1996 to 1999.

Unable to secure a stadium in San Jose, the Anschutz Entertainment Group relocated the team to Houston in late 2005. However, unlike most American sports relocations, the rights to the team name, colors, and history were left behind in San Jose while the Houston team was treated as an expansion franchise. San Jose would return for the 2008 season.

Originally the new team was to be known as “Houston 1836,” complete with a logo unveiling. However, in addition to being the founding of the city of Houston, “1836” was also seen as a reference to the war for Texas independence from Mexico. This proved divisive amongst Hispanic fans in the city, and the name was changed to Dynamo a few months later shortly before kickoff.

Winning Early

What didn’t stay behind in San Jose was the excellent roster and staff that had been assembled. This paid immediate dividends for soccer fans in Houston.

The Dynamo would go on to win back-to-back MLS Cup titles in their first two years. Both times, they defeated the New England Revolution.

The club would add to the trophy case a decade later with the Open Cup in 2018. They’d capture the Open Cup trophy again, defeating Inter Miami in the 2023 final.
