Houston Dynamo FC Secures International Roster Spot for 2023 Season in Exchange for Allocation Money

In a recent transaction, Houston Dynamo FC has acquired an international roster spot for the 2023 season from FC Cincinnati. The deal, valued at $50,000 in 2024 General Allocation Money (GAM), saw Cincinnati parting ways with the coveted spot. Additionally, Cincinnati stands to gain an extra $25,000 in 2024 GAM if Houston meets specific performance benchmarks during the 2023 season.

With this acquisition, Houston Dynamo FC is gearing up for their return to league action on Saturday, September 16. They will be hosting St. Louis CITY SC at Shell Energy Stadium, marking the first-ever visit of the expansion side to Houston. Both teams currently find themselves positioned above the playoff line, promising an exciting matchup.

The Dynamo’s September schedule is a challenging one, as they are set to navigate through a total of five games to close out the month. Notably, three of the four teams they will face are currently situated above the playoff line, setting the stage for some intense competition.
