The 2015 season was a low point for the Houston Dynamo. After an 11-14-9 record, Houston earned the third-last spot in the Western Conference. Things got even worse in 2016, as Houston finished at the foot of the Western Conference table. It was the third successive season Dynamo failed to qualify for playoffs. Historically, the Dynamo are a strong force, making four MLS Cup appearances. They became an MLS team in 2006 and captured two MLS Cup victories from their first two seasons, beating New England in both finals.
After five years in the Western Conference, Houston became an Eastern Conference team in 2011 because the Vancouver Whitecaps and Portland Timbers joined the MLS. That same year the Dynamo looked to repeat its championship successes from 2006 and 2007. They made it to the finals in both 2011 and 2012, but fell on both occasions to the LA Galaxy.
