When fans attend the Texans' home games in 2013, their experience could be enhanced by a new state-of-the-art scoreboard at Reliant Stadium.

The new scoreboard, which would offer higher-definition images, will cost anywhere from $10 million to $30 million and could be part of improvements at Reliant Stadium that enhance Houston's chances of landing Super Bowl LI.

Last week, Houston became one of two finalists for the 2017 Super Bowl. The competition will be South Florida or San Francisco - the city that loses the vote for Super Bowl L.

I believe we are the only stadium without a digital scoreboard. The technology has been around for longer than the age of our stadium. I hope they can use the entire size of the scoreboard for football-related info, instead of making it look like a backyard clothesline mostly filled with advertisements.

Mr. McNair will always want to generate revenue. He loves this team and wants to build a winner but he's a business man too. It will be a 16:9 and they will probably incorporate digital signage that will allow for revolving ads instead of the static billboards we see currently. (I kind of like them because they remind me of an old baseball stadium.)

I'm sure that all the bells and whistles will be great. But call me old fashioned, I long for the simpler days...

This is the missing piece to our stadium. I hope they do it up right.

So would this new one be larger than the current one? If so, how are they going to fit it under the roof?

according to the doom and gloom on bills forums, taking it they will be forced to upgrade when current scorre board cant fit our points..

You can count on BoB raising ticket prices to pay for this.

I don't think this will be limited to those paying for tickets...

McNair disclosed that the Texans and the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo are working with Harris County on improvements at Reliant Stadium, including a new digital scoreboard.

"The county's obligated to keep the stadium in first-class shape," McNair said.
We're working collectively to try to find thebest solution for funding. Some of it could come from state funds if the Super Bowl is a possibility, which looks like it may be for 2017, so we're hopeful we can get it figured out and get a new scoreboard up real soon.

You do realize that all NFL merchandise is profit shared equally amongst all 32 NFL teams, don't ya? Buy 100 JJ Watt jerseys, all teams receive equal share of said profits.

This bring up slightly sore spot with the cost of doing business in these scenarios. I would hope that the Texans/HLSR have to put some money into the scoreboard and not just the county or sports authority. Im not sure I agree with the city carrying the majority of the cost of the stadium and all the extras when the value is really in the Team. blah

This is literally what you call keeping up with the Joneses. I hope ticket prices do go too much higher.

My exact thoughts. Why not figure out a way to upgrade the field so people stop blowing out knees

They should remove the retractable roof that is never used and replace it with a giant tv screen.

I am wondering if they have the capability of undertaking two projects at once?

You hope the prices DO go too much higher? :hmmm: Freudian slip?

I've always read that the players like the field. Is there anything substantial that indicates the field is causing injuries? How many Texans have been hurt as a result of playing on that field 10 games a year?

From a fan's perspective, this new scoreboard is awesome. The field has no impact on us unless it's actually been causing injuries, but the scoreboard to fans increases the overall enjoyment experience.
