The Houston Dynamo will play a vital CONCACAF Champions League match tonight, and is doing what it can to make sure it has a big crowd behind it.
According to the Houston Chronicle, The Houston Dynamo is charging $5 for end-line seats for tonight's CONCACAF Champions League match at Robertson Stadium vs. Panamanian club Arabe Unido (10pm, Fox Soccer Channel), a vital match for the Dynamo's hopes of advancing to the knockout round.
The ticket offer comes on the heels of the Dynamo's last Champions League match in Mexico vs. Pachuca, a match which Pachuca allowed free admission for.
The Dynamo and Arabe Unido played to a 1-1 tie in Panama on Aug. 26 in a match that saw five red cards handed out.
Houston is currently third in its Champions League group with four points, and needs a win against Arabe Unido to pull into a tie with the Panamanian club. Pachuca, which plays Isidro Metapan tonight, is in second place with six points.
Here are some other MLS tidbits to get you through a slow Tuesday:
Armas to join Ring of Fire
Chris Armas will be inducted into the Chicago Fire's Ring of Fire, becoming just the sixth person, and fourth player to be so honored. The team announced the news on Sunday. Armas will be inducted prior to the Fire's match against Chivas USA on Oct. 22nd.
That's a fitting match to make it since Armas' former Fire teammates and current Chivas USA players Jesse Marsch, Ante Razov, Zach Thornton and Jim Curtin will be able to attend the ceremony.
Armas will join Peter Nowak, Bob Bradley, Peter Wilt, Lubos Kubik and Frank Klopas as Ring of Fire honorees.
Earthquake unveil stadium drawings
The San Jose Earthquakes unveiled illustrations of their proposed 15,000-seat stadium project on Saturday. Should Earthquakes fan celebrate? Not really. The drawings are just drawings of what 'Quakes ownerships to build some day. The Earthquakes had made plays to build a stadium that could open in 2012, but the weak economy has put those plans on hold indefinitely.
What do you think of Houston's ticket offer? Think the Dynamo will dispose of Arabe Unido easily? Happy to see Armas being honored by the Fire? Think it was pointless for San Jose to unveil stadium drawings for a stadium that won't be built any time soon?
