Oliver Luck gives downtown Houston stadium 50-50 chance

Houston Dynamo president Oliver Luck gives a downtown stadium for the club a 50-50 chance of happening since the city is looking at this as a chance to spark an interest in the east side of town.

The stadium talk seems to center around a 22,000 seater and a cost of $70 million.

Interesting enough, Luck says tax dollars will not play an important part in these plans.

"There will not be sports authority tax funds used as there were for the three other venues, Minute Maid, Reliant and Toyota Center,” said Luck, who incidentally is the former head of the Harris County Sports Authority which funneled the tax dollars for those facilities.

The proposed 10-acre complex might be official as early as July.
