NFL STATEMENT ON THE
RELOCATION OF THE DALLAS COWBOYS-HOUSTON TEXANS GAME
to public safety concerns resulting from the ongoing weather emergency related
to Hurricane Harvey, Thursday’s Dallas Cowboys-Houston Texans game originally
scheduled to be played in Houston at 7 p.m. CT has been relocated to AT&T
Stadium in Arlington. Kickoff on Thursday will remain at 7 p.m. CT.
Details on tickets, parking and other game day logistics will be announced
later this week.
announced earlier today, The NFL Foundation will match Mr. McNair and the
Texans' $1 million contribution to the United Way Relief Fund to address the
immediate needs of those impacted by Hurricane Harvey. The total $2 million
contribution will support first response efforts by the American Red Cross,
Salvation Army and the United Way of Greater Houston. Our thoughts are with the
Houston community during this difficult time and we encourage fans to text
HARVEY to 90999 to donate $10 to American Red Cross Hurricane Harvey relief.
NFL and the Texans will continue to closely monitor the situation in Houston
and adjust the team’s plans as necessary.
