In preparation for the 25th Anniversary Valero Alamo Bowl and 2018 Men’s NCAA Final Four, the Alamodome has completed the most expansive renovation project in the facility’s history.
Fans walking to the Alamodome can take advantage of the new pedestrian walkway on the way into the game through the newly transformed H-E-B Plaza.
By doubling the size of the east and west plaza level concourses, the Alamodome was able to expand the concessions offerings with new restaurant fare like Chick-fil-A, Big Bib BBQ and Los Barrios Mexican Cuisine as well as place branded bars throughout the facility.
Some of the most noticeable improvements are focused on the inner bowl and include:
- Four new larger HD videowalls
- 360-degree LED ribbon boards
- New sound system
- Upgraded DAS and WiFi systems
This $60 million improvement project was funded using a combination of revenue bonds, convention and sports facilities reserve funds as well as a $6 million donation from the Valero Alamo Bowl.
“After last year’s extensions of our ESPN, Big 12 and Pac-12 agreements through the 2025 college football season, our focus became how to best enhance the City’s improvements to the facility to provide the best in-venue experience possible,” said Derrick Fox, president and CEO of the Valero Alamo Bowl. “We are looking forward to unveiling the renovated Alamodome to the Stanford and TCU fans attending our 25th Anniversary game on Thursday, December 28.”
