About


Community Council

A key component of the Houston Super Bowl Host Committee’s efforts to engage the Houston area in the preparation, planning and hosting of Super Bowl LI is the creation of the Community Council. Comprised of civic and business leaders from across the Houston area, the Council reviews Host Committee plans, provides guidance and counsel, helps implement Host Committee initiatives and communicates messages to the area. The Community Council’s efforts are an invaluable asset to the Host Committee as we all prepare for Super Bowl LI.
