HOUSTON (CBS Houston) According to officials with Reliant Park, the Board of Directors of the Harris County Sports & Convention Corporation (HCSCC) are scheduled to consider several items during its December 19, 2012 meeting, among those being the purchase and installation of two high definition LED displays in Reliant Stadium.

Reliant Park is home to the Houston Texans football franchise and the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo™.

The estimated cost of the hi-def LED screens will be about $16 million, and would be installed where the current scoreboards are located, just in time for the 2013 NFL season and the 2014 Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo™.

According to additional reports, the Houston Texans are the only NFL team without a digital scoreboard.

Texans owner Bob McNair and the Houston Livestock Show and Road would reportedly pay for the new displays and then be reimbursed by Reliant.

The vote on the high definition LED displays is scheduled for next Wednesday.

With successful seasons from the Houston Texans  and the growing appeal of the city of Houston as well as talk of Houston hosting the Super Bowl, many feel that a football fan’s football game experience would be enhanced by a new state-of-the-art scoreboard at Reliant Stadium.
