NRG Stadium

NRG Stadium (pronounced as Energy Stadium), formerly Reliant Stadium, is a multi-purpose stadium, in Houston, Texas, United States. NRG Stadium has a seating capacity of 71,795, a total area of 1,900,000 square feet (180,000 m2) with a 97,000 sq ft (9,000 m2) playing surface.

The stadium is the home of the National Football League's Houston Texans, the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, the Texas Bowl, international soccer matches for the USA National Soccer Team, and other events. The stadium served as the host facility for Super Bowl XXXVIII on February 1, 2004, Super Bowl LI on February 5, 2017, and WrestleMania XXV on April 5, 2009.

NRG Stadium is part of a collection of venues (including the Astrodome), which are collectively called NRG Park. The entire complex is named for NRG Energy under a 32-year, US$300 million naming rights deal in 2000.

The stadium was constructed at the cost of $352 million. NRG Stadium is the first facility in the NFL to have a retractable roof.

In February 2017, NRG Stadium hosted Super Bowl LI. It also hosted all 10 of the University Interscholastic League's Texas high school football championship games at the conclusion of the 2015 season.
