NRG Stadium to host 2015 UILfootball championships

AUSTIN — The University Interscholastic League (UIL) announced today that the 2015 UIL Football State Championship games would be played at NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas.
All 11-man UIL Football Championship Games will be played December 17-19, 2015 at NRG Stadium. Houston last hosted the UIL Football Championship Games for the largest conference in 2008 at the formerly named Reliant Stadium.
“The UIL Football State Championships are truly a marquee event with a legion of fans dedicated to the best football in Texas,” said UIL Executive Director Dr. Charles Breithaupt. “The League looks forward to bringing the football finals to Houston’s NRG Stadium for a great championship experience.”
The 2015 football state championships will mark the fifth year all 11-man championship football games will be played at one pre-determined location. AT&T Stadium began hosting all 11-man games in 2011. The UIL has determined the site for the largest conference football state championship games since 2006.
“We all know that High School Football is big in Texas and it’s something we’re also well-versed in hosting at NRG Stadium,” said Kevin Hoffman, Executive Director of Harris County Sports & Convention Corporation. “This will be our first time hosting the UIL High School Football Championship games in NRG Stadium and we hope to secure even more in the years to come. These 10 championship games will bring football fans from all over Texas to NRG Stadium in celebration of our youth and athletic achievement.”
