Club America and Houston Still Courting
Those talks heated up and cooled down repeatedly over the course of many months.
Recently the primary obstacle has been TV rights. Not from ESPN/Disney, but with Televisa. SUM/AEG/MLS has not been able to come to terms with the Mexican broadcaster. Club America is ready to make it happen and take over the club, but until this aspect is worked out the sale will not move forward. On a side note, it also appears that any future Houston stadium development would remain in the hands of AEG, much like what was planned for DC.
