Building an Atmosphere in the new Dynamo Stadium

The Dynamo have begun accepting deposits for the "Supporters Section" that will be a part of the new stadium in 2012. With space more limited in the new building, the four supporters groups will be placed in to two sections of the lower bowl.

The price for a season ticket in the section is $250 ($450 less than a regular season ticket in a comparable section) and represents a tremendous effort by the front office to ensure their most audible and passionate supporters will have both space to exist in the new stadium and a section that is designed to fit their needs.

The front office has committed to not only providing two sections with terraced seating (no physical seats, pending city code approval) but will also help financially with equipment and signage, along with travel and tickets for the annual derby match in Dallas. All in all, it's a fantastic deal.

You have until June 1st, 2012 to place a $50 deposit per ticket and then have six months to pay off the remaining balance on your ticket(s).

When you place your deposit you can chose to note your current SG affiliation; Texian Army, El Batallon, La Bateria or Brickwall Firm (which I encourage you to do), or that you have no affiliation. If that's the case, you should definitely meet with the various groups and see if you'd like to be a part of one of them. While the groups will be occupying a common area at the new stadium and will work together, they will still keep their independent identities and all operate differently.

A word of caution, if you've never stood with a supporters group at a match and you will be standing in this section, you should join one of the groups for a match in the coming weeks to get an idea of the experience. It's not for every fan and the last thing that needs to happen is people buying tickets for the deep discount. The new stadium will not be like Robertson where you can basically sit in an number of spots on game day. 

Do your due diligence and see what the supporters groups have to offer and what they bring to the match day experience, then decide if it's something that you would enjoy. If it is, I encourage you to take advantage of this offer and help fill the sections.
