HOUSTON -- The Harris County Sports & Convention Corporation voted Wednesday to rename both Reliant Park and Reliant Stadium to NRG Park and NRG Stadium.

NRG Energy is the parent company of the center’s current namesake, Reliant Energy.

“We are pleased that the Harris County Sports & Convention Corporation (HCSCC) has voted to authorize the rebranding of Reliant Park and its related facilities*, including Reliant Stadium, to NRG Park and NRG Stadium, respectively," the company said in a statement released after the vote. "We look forward to continuing our support of the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, the Houston Texans and all of the park’s events and activities."

The new name signage will be in place before the start of the Texans’ season opener.
