After clearing the final hurdles to get the project approved, the Houston Dynamo will officially break ground in its new stadium on Saturday, between 2pm and 4pm local time in Houston.
The $95 million stadium, which will be built on Houston's East End and is projected to be completed in 2012, should provide a major boost for a soccer market with a strong fan base, but a fan base that has endured watching the Dynamo play in a tattered Robertson Stadium.
Here are more renderings of the stadium.
