NRG CEO and Executive Director Ryan Walsh gave this statement:

"Like many of our neighbors in the Gulf Coast region, NRG Park sustained damage from Hurricane Beryl, including to the roof of NRG Stadium. HCSCC officials are collaborating with state, county, and city officials to assist with recovery efforts throughout the region. This collective undertaking requires all of us to work together with a strong commitment to our community. While we assist with these efforts, we are also assessing the extent of damages to NRG Park facilities. We look forward to seeing our neighbors at NRG Park soon as we return to normal operations."

Known for its versatile indoor/outdoor retractable roof, NRG Stadium is the only venue of its kind that can transform a 125,000-square-foot space for various functions including general sessions, catered events, exhibits, concerts, and both professional and amateur sports.
