We reserve the right to confiscate any item that does not adhere to this policy. Although not a prohibited item, the Houston Texans and NRG Stadium request that you do not bring strollers into the stadium, as there is no place to store them and they pose a trip hazard. Umbrellas are permitted in NRG Stadium if they are small enough to be stored under your seat during the game.

In consideration of the health and comfort of others, smoking, including e-cigarettes, is not permitted in the seating area or on the concourses. There are designated smoking terraces located on all four sides of the Field Level, the Club Level and also in each corner of the Upper Level. Please note that certain smoking terraces may be closed at times; however, alternate smoking terraces on the same level will remain open.
