Reliant Stadium saw it’s first Super Bowl in 2004 at Super Bowl XXXVIII and now they are in the running for another one.

On Tuesday it came out that the NFL was considering South Florida and San Francisco for Super Bowl L, and Houston along with those two cities for the Super Bowl LI.

President Jamey Rootes said that “we’re going to go work hard to try to earn it for Houston.” He went on to say “We’ve got a fantastic city. We’ve got the best fans. We’ve got one of the great stadiums on the planet.”

2017 is a long way off but bringing a Super Bowl atmosphere back to Houston is certainly an exciting prospect.
