Harris County Stadium Home to Houston Texans, Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo
NRG Stadium is part of NRG Park, a 350-acre sports, convention, tradeshow and entertainment complex located in Harris County, Texas. It is the home stadium for the Houston Texans, a professional football team, as well as the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. With a seating capacity of over 72,000 seats, the multi-purpose stadium hosts a number of key events throughout the year, aside from football, including the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, international soccer matches, concerts, and more.
Scalable Capacity Required to Support Championship-Caliber Fan Experience
In 2017, NRG Stadium is slated to host the Big Game in Houston in early February. In preparation, the organization sought to improve the entertainment experience by offering free, fast WiFi so fans would have a smooth experience when posting social media updates, and accessing the Houston Texans’ mobile app for news, stats, and replays from their wireless devices.
