San Antonio City Council approves Alamodome contract with UTSA
(Oct. 21, 2010)--The San Antonio City Council approved Thursday a contract allowing UTSA to play its home football games in the Alamodome during its first five seasons. The contract ensures the Roadrunners will host contests in the 65,000-seat facility beginning with its inaugural season in 2011 and extending through 2015. The contract also includes a provision for two one-year renewal options.
"We are extremely pleased to be playing our home games in one of the best football stadiums in the country," said UTSA Director of Athletics Lynn Hickey. "Our contract with the City is a true partnership in bringing big-time college football to our community."
Mayor Julian Castro and members of the City Council joined Hickey in praising the partnership to bring a permanent football tenant to the Alamodome.
"This is a fair and strong agreement for both the city and UTSA. It will bring football to the Alamodome and make a great difference in enlivening downtown," Castro told the San Antonio Express-News on Wednesday.
Under the contract, UTSA will receive revenue primarily from tickets, merchandise, sponsorships and program sales. The City will be reimbursed for its expenses and will retain all concession and parking revenue. UTSA will receive all revenue from 40 of the Alamodome's 52 suites. The City and UTSA will split revenue from 10 suites and the City will retain two suites for internal use.
UTSA will host six games in 2011: Northeastern State (Sept. 3), McMurry (Sept. 10), Bacone College (Sept. 24), South Alabama (Oct. 8), Georgia State (Oct. 29) and Minot State (Nov. 19). For a complete list of future games scheduled, visit goUTSA.com.
