Houston’s newest 71,500 seat state-of-the-art sports complex, Reliant Stadium is home to the NFL Houston Texans and the world-renowned Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo. Reliant Stadium stays busy year-round thanks to the retractable roof – the first for an NFL – specific venue – and a palletized grass system. The fabric roof allows for flexibility providing an open-air stadium when weather permits and an indoor facility for the winter event schedule. This year Reliant Stadium hosted the 2011 NCAA Mens Basketball Final Four. Reliant Stadium also hosted the NCAA Mens Regional Basketball games in 2008 and 2010.
