About the 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 29 bowl games and served as the local host for 11 neutral site games. The 29 Valero Alamo Bowl games have combined to deliver over $1 billion in total economic impact to San Antonio, 156 million viewers on ESPN, 1.7 million attendees to the Alamodome, and $143 million to higher education through team payouts ($134.6 million) and local scholarships ($8.4 million).

After paying each team $720,515 to play in the inaugural Builders Square Alamo Bowl in 1993, the Valero Alamo Bowl’s combined team payout to the Big 12 and Pac-12 conferences for the 30th annual game in 2022 will be $9.4 million.
