MLS Ticker: Dynamo unveils jersey deal, GA youngsters win friendly and more


The Houston Dynamo unveiled a new jersey sponsor and a new-look uniform on Tuesday, announcing a five-year deal with Houston-based Greenstar Recycling.

The deal, reported to be worth $12.7 million, includes exclusive jersey naming rights and will make Greenstar Recycling the first founding partner in Houston's new stadium.

Houston just finished a four-year deal with Amigo Energy, but the new sponsorship will dwarf the Amigo deal in terms of revenue for the Dynamo.

Here are some other MLS stories from Tuesday:


FC Dallas striker Peri Marosevic scored the game-winning goal off a pass from Columbus Crew midfielder Dilly Duka to give the Generation adidas team a 1-0 victory against the Rayo Vallecano reserves on Tuesday.

Chicago Fire goalkeeper Sean Johnson made four saves for the shutout.

The Generation adidas team will complete its tour of Spain on Wednesday with a match against Atletico Madrid reserves.


The Seattle Sounders earned some major roster flexibility on Tuesday after standouts Steve Zakuani, Blaise N'Kufo and Jhon Kennedy Hurtado all earned their green cards. The news means Seattle will be able to sign more international players for the 2011 season.









  1. I like the new Sporting KC jersey and the new Houston jersey. Not so crazy about the new Sounders kit with the duct-tape on the shoulder.

  2. As a Dynamo fan,

    LOVE the new sponsor signing for $12M

    DIG that collar

    INTO underlaying patterns, just not THAT pattern

    SAD there’s not more of that nice accenting “space city blue” on the home shirt, perhaps it’s more prominant on the away shirt

    Now we just need Geoff Cameron to rock the the Hall & Oates 80’s poof hair

  3. How can something that’s never really gone away return (see last season’s jerseys for Colorado, Chivas – away, New England, and Toronto, plus the LA Galaxy 2007-09)?

  4. Love the shirt especially compared to how much I loathed last years (it did grow on me tho). Like the new sponsor! Ironic that it went from Amigo Energy to a recycling company.

  5. Most 80’s fashion trends should stay in the 80’s…the jersey sponsorship is great news for the Dynamo and MLS, but I do not want to see the trend of teams going back to 80’s and 90’s style kits.

  6. So $12.7m for a three year deal or a bit over $4m a year from their shirt sponsor. Wow, great job Houston and their fans. Now what DP will they find to spend that cash on?
