Houston Dynamo minority owner Oscar De La Hoya joined city and county officials Saturday at the groundbreaking for the team's $95 million, soccer-specific stadium.

The 22,000-seat venue will sit near downtown, within walking distance of Minute Maid Park, the Toyota Center and the city's massive convention center. Besides being home to the Dynamo, it also will host international soccer matches, Texas Southern University football games, concerts and boxing matches.

The Dynamo have been sharing Robertson Stadium, home of the University of Houston Cougars football team, since moving to Houston from San Jose in 2005.
