Houston Texans Home Receives Upgrades To Scoreboards
Reliant Stadium, home of the Houston Texans, will receive two new high-definition LED scoreboards for the 2013 football season.
The Scoreboards cost a total of $15.5 million and will be financed through hotel and motel taxes and auto rental fees. The board of the Harris County Sports and Convention Corporation approved the purchase yesterday.
The new scoreboards will be bigger than the ones at Cowboys Stadium, measuring in at 52 feet tall and 277 feet wide. Backers for the new scoreboards say they are need to help Houston's chances to host the Super Bowl in 2017.
The stadium also hosts the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo every year. The Texans are in action at home on Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings. Kick off is at Noon.
