The 2008 Houston Dynamo season was the third season of the Houston club franchise. The Houston Dynamo were the defending back-to-back MLS Cup Champions, and sought to become the first club in Major League Soccer history to win three straight MLS Cups.

The Dynamo were expected to have an even busier year than in 2007. In addition to defending their MLS Cup in MLS regular-season play, they participated in the 2008 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup, the final 2008 CONCACAF Champions' Cup, the inaugural 2008-09 CONCACAF Champions League and the 2008 North American SuperLiga, were invited to play in the inaugural Pan-Pacific Championship and the Texas Pro Soccer Festival 2008.

Major events[edit]

Team news[edit]

  • Houston's City Council on January 30, 2008 approved the purchase of over 80 acres (320,000 m2) of land near State Highway 288 and Almeda-Genoa Rd. for the development of an amateur sports complex—the first of its kind in the history of the city. The new complex will provide 18 fields for local soccer organizations and will also afford the area the opportunity to host amateur tournaments of state, regional and national stature. Once completely developed, the complex is expected to attract well over 500,000 visitors per year.[1]
  • On February 26, 2008 Houston Dynamo President Oliver Luck revealed the planned negotiations to the media stating that the Houston Dynamo would be managed in majority by original owners Anschutz Entertainment Group (who will hold 50% of ownership) along with newfound partners Gabriel Brener, head of Brener International Group, and multiple World and Olympic boxing champion Oscar De La Hoya (each with 25% ownership each).[2]
