Home of the Houston Texans, Reliant Stadium was the first of its kind in the NFL, with a retractable roof. Prior to 1997, Houston had a NFL franchise, the Houston Oilers. After thirty years of playing at the Astrodome, the Oilers began demanding that a new football only stadium be built in the mid 1990s. After numerous attempts to get a stadium failed, the team decided to move to Nashville, TN after the 1996 season. Once the Oilers left for Nashville, a group including Bob McNair, hired HOK sport to design a new retractable roof stadium, that could help lure a team back to Houston.
