NRG Stadium opened in 2002, the same year as the birth of the Houston Texans football team. It was known as Reliant Stadium when it opened. The name changed to NRG in 2015.

NRG Stadium is just a pop fly west of the Astrodome.

The original home for the Astros, Colt stadium was partially absorbed into the new NRG stadium. The first base and right field part of the old park were in the northwest corner of NRG Stadium.

The stadium has hosted 2 super bowls so far. And both times the AFC representative has been the New England Patriots.

Home for the NFL Texans, the Houston livestock show and rodeo, and the NCAA Texas Bowl.

The University of Houston Cougars played here for one season in 2013 while their stadium was being built.

Biggest crowd was over 80,000 for a George Strait farewell concert in 2013.
