About the Valero Alamo Bowl

The Valero Alamo Bowl was created in 1993 to bring enjoyment to San Antonians, South Texans, and visitors alike while creating positive economic impact, experiences, and national attention for our community and participating universities.

The organization has produced 31 bowl games and served as the local host for 11 neutral site games. The 31 Valero Alamo Bowl games have combined to deliver over $1.1 billion in total economic impact to San Antonio, 165 million viewers on ESPN, 1.8 million attendees to the Alamodome, and $163+ million to higher education through team payouts ($152.5+ million) and local scholarships ($10.7+ million).

Last year’s game was the eight Top 20 matchup in the last 10 years as #14 Arizona beat #12 Oklahoma 38-24 in front of 55,853 fans at the Alamodome and 3.9 million viewers on ESPN on December 28. Proceeds from the event help fund the largest local scholarship program among all bowl games.

For the 2023-2024 school year, the Valero Alamo Bowl and its partners will collectively award over $1.2 million split between 165 students representing every participating San Antonio area high school and four-year university.  

The 2024 Valero Alamo Bowl will again be played in the 65,000 seat Alamodome in San Antonio. The 2024 and 2025 games will feature the #1 selection from the Big 12 Conference after the College Football Playoffs against an opponent that will be announced by the end of May.
