The 2013 season is the Houston Dynamo's 8th competitive season in Major League Soccer, 8th year of existence as a football club, and their second consecutive season playing at BBVA Compass Stadium. They also competed in the CONCACAF Champions League, participating in the knockout phase of the 2012-13 campaign being eliminated by Santos Laguna in the quarterfinal 3-1 on Aggregate. They will be opening the 2013-14 group stage in late July or early August 2013.

During the 2013 season Houston suffered their first ever loss at BBVA Compass Stadium against Sporting Kansas City on May 12, 2013.[2]

The Dynamo are entering the season as the two-time defending MLS Eastern Conference post-season champions and runners-up to the MLS Cup.
