Reliant Park is a multifacility complex, which includes Reliant Arena, Reliant Stadium, Reliant Center and the Reliant Astrodome. The last of these was host to the Houston Astros until the team moved to Minute Maid Park in 2000. In 2002, Reliant Energy purchased naming rights to the newly built Reliant Stadium, which would serve as home field for the brand-new Houston Texans.
