Built as an extension to the neighboring convention center, the Alamodome has more meeting space per square foot than any other football stadium in North America which provides versatility and flexibility. The facility has also made significant improvements the last five years including a new home team locker room, DAS/Wi-Fi networks and an AstroTurf playing surface as well as an expanded north plaza entrance and a new 20,000+ square foot multi-purpose room.
The newest renovations included doubling the size of the concourses and LED ribbon boards as well as installing new larger HD videowalls in all four corners of the stadium and improving Wi-Fi throughout the Dome. These improvements are being funded through a $6 million donation from the Valero Alamo Bowl as well as user fees. The Valero Alamo Bowl will combine to contribute fees as well as generate the Alamodome rent for the stadium, suites and parking lots along with concessions and merchandise commissions.
In addition to hosting the Valero Alamo Bowl, the 65,000 seat Alamodome is also home to the UTSA Roadrunners of Conference USA.
The Alamodome has been the site of the NCAA Men’s Final Four on four occasions (1998, 2004, 2008 and 2018) and the Women’s Final Four three time (2002, 2009 and 2021). The NCAA Men’s Final Four returns to San Antonio in 2025 along with the Women’s Final Four in 2029 and another round of Alamodome improvements.
Three regular season (the New Orleans Saints relocated to San Antonio following Hurricane Katrina) and six NFL preseason games have also taken place in the Alamodome.
The Valero Alamo Bowl has also served as the local host for 11 neutral site college football games in the Alamodome including three Big 12 Football Championships (1997, 1999 and 2007) as well as the Texas A&M vs. Army game in 2006 and two Notre Dame Shamrock Series games (against Washington State in 2009 and Army in 2016).
The largest crowd in Alamodome history occurred on June 1, 2013 when 73,086 attended a George Strait concert. The 2007 Valero Alamo Bowl between Penn State vs. Texas A&M was the most attended sporting event in Alamodome history with 66,166 fans.
