The deadline to complete the application process will be December 22nd.
Our 2020 schedule is listed here and will be updated as regularly. Those who cannot be accommodated at this year’s still have the opportunity to participate in the virtual media availabilities.
This year’s media hotel is the Marriott Rivercenter (101 Bowie). The Bowl’s $139 per night plus tax rate is available through the credential process for these dates: December 26-30.
Media Will Call
Credentials will not be mailed and will either be available to those attending the Alamodome’s Field Painting availability or on game day at the designated Media Will Call at Gate #4 outside of the media entrance to the Alamodome. This area is located on the east side of the building around the 50-yard line and will open at 5:00 p.m. on gameday. Early access can be arranged upon request. Those granted photo access will receive their vest at the same location.
Those approved for parking passes will be sent those via an email they need to load to their smart phone. There are no printed passes this year.
Given the reduced capacity of the press box, each participating team will be able to preference a small number of reporters to receive press box access. Similarly the Valero Alamo Bowl will provide access to a small number of media who routinely cover events on the Valero Alamo Bowl’s year long calendar.
The Valero Alamo Bowl reserves the right to revoke any credential used by individuals not fully accredited, or an individual not in compliance with working media standards. Acceptance of credentials constitute agreement by the bearer and his/her media organization to abide by the conditions as prescribed by the Alamo Bowl.
No spouses, dates or children will be allowed in Alamodome media facilities or on the sideline.
Release and waiver of liability relating to COVID-19
By accepting and using the credentials, each bearer and user of the credentials (hereinafter referred to as “I” and “me”) agrees to the terms and conditions, including assumptions of risk, releases, and waivers, contained herein.
The World Health Organization has declared the novel coronavirus, COVID-19, to be a global pandemic. The virus, which is highly transmissible, is believed to spread in a variety of ways, including by person-to-person contact, through the air, and by contact with contaminated surfaces. While some infected persons may show no symptoms, COVID-19 can cause serious and potentially life threatening illness and death.
I have voluntarily decided to be on the premises and in contact with objects on such premises, and participate in activities on the premises and that may result in contact with the objects, including without limitation, the parking lot, playing surface, adjacent common areas of the field, restrooms, chairs, tables, trash cans, concession stand, and all other buildings, improvements, objects, and persons located at and adjacent to 100 Montana Street, San Antonio, Texas 78203 (the “Premises/Facilities”).
San Antonio Bowl Association, dba Valero Alamo Bowl, cannot prevent me from being exposed to or contracting COVID-19 when I enter the Premises/Facilities, while I am present at and/or on the Premises/Facilities, and/or while I am using the Premises/Facilities or participating in any activities at and/or on the Premises/Facilities. The San Antonio Bowl Association cannot ensure that COVID-19 is not present at or on the Premises/Facilities. I acknowledge and agree that, if I enter the Premises/Facilities, am present at and/or on the Premises/Facilities, use the Premises/Facilities, and/or participate in any activities at and/or on the Premises, I may be exposing myself to and increasing my risk of contracting COVID-19.
ASSUMPTION OF RISK: I have read and understand the above warning about COVID 19. I hereby choose to accept any and all risk of being exposed to and contracting COVID-19 in order to accept a credential, enter the Premises/Facilities, be present at and/or on the Premises/Facilities, use the Premises/Facilities, and participate in activities at and/or on the Premises/Facilities. I have considered and determined that entering the Premises/Facilities, being present at and/or on the Premises/Facilities, using the Premises/Facilities, and participating in activities at and/or on the Premises/Facilities, as opposed to not entering the Premises/Facilities, not being present at and/or on the Premises/Facilities, not using the Premises/Facilities, and not participating in activities at and/or on the Premises/Facilities is of such value to me that I accept any and all risk of being exposed to and contracting COVID-19.
WAIVER OF LAWSUIT/LIABILITY: I hereby FOREVER RELEASE and WAIVE my right to bring any claim or suit against San Antonio Bowl Association, as well as the employees, officers, insurers, representatives, and agents of the organization, in connection with the actual or alleged, direct or indirect, exposure to and/or infection by COVID-19, at any time, relating to accepting a credential, entering the Premises/Facilities, being present at and/or on the Premises/Facilities, using the Premises/Facilities, and participating in activities at and/or on the Premises/Facilities. I understand that, by accepting a credential to the 2020 Valero Alamo Bowl, I am giving up my right to bring any claims and suits, whether for negligence or for any other basis, including without limitation claims and suits for personal injuries, death, disease, property, or any other loss. I further understand that I am giving up any claim or suit I may have to seek any and all damages, whether known, unknown, foreseen, or unforeseen.
