The Houston Texans are a long shot to become the first team to play a Super Bowl in their home stadium. They won the AFC South with a 9-7 record this season, but it was the NFL’s worst division and Houston was shutout in their only playoff game.
It will be the 14th consecutive year in which the Super Bowl is held in February. The Super Bowl had been played on Feb. 5 twice before. The Pittsburgh Steelers beat the Seattle Seahawks in 2006, and the New York Giants defeated the New England Patriots in 2012 on that date.
NRG Stadium has a maximum capacity of 71,500, and it will be difficult for fans to grab one of those seats. The largest percentage of Super Bowl tickets goes to the two teams in the contest, as each gets 17.5 percent. Because the Texans are hosting the game, they’ll get five percent of the tickets. The other 29 NFL teams get 1.2 percent of the seats, and the organizations hold lotteries of their own amongst season-ticket holders. The NFL league office takes the final 25.2 percent of the tickets.
Fans who don’t have season tickets can still find a way to see the 2017 Super Bowl in person. The NFL holds a lottery every year that gives 500 fans a chance to buy two tickets, instructions for which can be found at NFL.com. Fans can also get seats on the secondary ticket market, though that’s a much more expensive option.
