The Texans and HLSR Monday announced a 5-year sponsorship agreement with BHP Billiton Petroleum. The company's name is now on the northeast gate at Reliant Stadium. The company will support a Texans program benefiting volunteers from United Way agencies and sponsor the Texans' first home game.
"Our Liberty Whiteout game -- this year the Tennessee Titans -- our presenting partner wrapped all around that entire game day is BHP Billiton," said Texans President Jamey Rootes.
BHP Billiton is now also the main sponsor of the rodeo's Armed Forces Day.
