Alcohol sales are limited to two (2) drinks per person per transaction. All public alcohol sales will end at the end of the third quarter.
Please note that different areas of NRG Stadium are licensed for different types of alcoholic drinks (beer only, both beer and liquor or neither).

For instance, beverages purchased in a Verizon Wireless Club Lounge must be consumed in the Lounge and may not be removed from that area. These policies are the law and will be strictly enforced.
To provide a safer environment for the public and significantly expedite fan entry into stadiums, NFL teams have implemented an NFL policy that limits the size and type of bags that may be brought into stadiums.The NFL Committee on Stadium Security in May unanimously recommended the implementation of this measure that will enhance public safety and make it easier for fans to gain access to all stadiums. Get complete information regarding the NFL's bag policy here.
The Houston Texans and NRG Stadium welcome signs and banners but request that you adhere to specific guidelines in order to ensure that these articles do not detract from the enjoyment of other guests. Banners and signs should in no way infringe on the sightlines of other fans and must be small enough for one person to hold. They may not be affixed to anything in NRG Stadium or held so that they block the view of scoreboards or any permanent signage in the Stadium. In addition, poles are prohibited in NRG Stadium, so banners or signs affixed to a pole will not be permitted into the stadium. All banners and signs must be in good taste, must be in the spirit of the event and must not have any corporate name, logo or message. The Texans reserve the right to remove any banner or sign that does not meet these guidelines.
