Reliant Stadium Information
Reliant Stadium is the home of the NFL’s Houston Texans and is currently the only NFL stadium to feature a retractable roof. The stadium is housed in Reliant Park, a sprawling, versatile facility that can host any number of different venues and events. Besides Reliant Stadium, Reliant Park features the Astrodome, previous home of the Houston Astros, Reliant Center, and Reliant Arena. Both the Arena and the Center are more suited for conference hosting, while the Stadium is for sporting events. The official capacity during NFL games is 71,500; however, these numbers will be adjusted as the Reliant prepares to host NCAA Basketball.
