AUGUST 31, 2020 — UTSA Athletics today unveiled a comprehensive plan for fans to attend home football games as safely as possible this season at the Alamodome.
The plan, which will allow attendance at a reduced capacity of 17% and with physical distancing measures, follows all state and local health directives and focuses on risk mitigation strategies that promote the safety of student-athletes, fans and staff. Since the situation remains fluid and continues to evolve, the plan is subject to change based on emerging information as well as local and state health developments.
“Our goal is to provide the safest game-day experience possible for everyone who steps foot inside the Alamodome this season,” Vice President for Intercollegiate Athletics Lisa Campos said. “UTSA Athletics has worked in coordination with the City of San Antonio, Alamodome staff, local and state health experts, Conference USA and the NCAA to develop a plan that will help create a safe environment for our student-athletes, coaches, staff, fans and community. We’re all in this together and it will require all of us to adhere to the safety protocols in place at our home football games this season. We can’t wait to see our team compete and to have you cheering on our Roadrunners this fall.”
Based upon recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Texas Department of State Health Services, the San Antonio Metropolitan Health District and the UTSA Public Health Task Force, the following measures will be implemented at the Alamodome:

If you are feeling sick, please cheer on the Roadrunners from the safety of your home. We look forward to welcoming UTSA Football back to the Alamodome this fall. Go, Roadrunners.”
