Featuring a cutting edge retractable roof and 97,000 square feet of natural grass, the stadium is particularly friendly to football games between the Houston Texans and their NFL rivals. Even Texas has inclement weather, so the fans and players are grateful that the roof retracts in just seven minutes, barely long enough to get wet. The stadium also features five levels of seating, four levels which are suites that lend themselves to group events. Every event at the stadium is meant to be special.
Harris County Sports and Convention Corporation owns this state-of-the art facility, which offers a variety of services, including a designated driver program for visitors. The stadium also has a superior audio/video system that allows clients to customize their event with outstanding visual and audio presentations. The facility is clearly one of the most flexible venues in the nation, and one of the most fun to visit.
The stadium is located in the Houston metropolitan area, so arranging a trip to the football game or the rodeo is easy. Many reasonably priced hotels and tourist attractions are nearby and easily accessible for visitors. They may choose a day trip to Galveston or visit the NASA Space Center. Tourists can plan a weekend visit that includes a game or they may stay even longer. The stadium and NGR Park always have exciting events going on.
No one does it bigger and better than in Texas, and the NGR Stadium is proof of that. Featuring the latest in design, amenities, vendors, and seating, visitors to the facility have a total entertainment experience. The unique roof and the beautiful natural grass are particularly suited to the football experience as well as other huge sporting events, including the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. However, no one needs to wait for an event to visit the complex: it's a tourist destination all its own.
