On Sept 7, the Alamodome celebrated its 20th Anniversary during UTSA’s season opening game against Oklahoma State. The walk down memory lane featured a special half-time spectacular performed by the Roadrunner Marching Band, showcasing two decades of outstanding events such as the Valero Alamo Bowl, NCAA Final Fours and music from Paul McCartney and George Strait. A commemorative coin toss featured former mayors Lila Cockrell and Henry Cisneros, as well as County Judge Nelson Wolff, City Council Members and City Manager Sheryl Sculley.
The 65,000 seat Alamodome opened its doors in 1993, and has since hosted such high profile events as the NBA All-Star Game, NFL Football Games, concerts and Major League Baseball. The facility has enabled the city to welcome some of the largest conventions in the world, including the 2010 ALANON Convention with over 60,000 employees. Since 2011, the Alamodome has been home to the UTSA Roadrunners football team. The highly successful Roadrunner program will host its games in the stadium through the 2035 season.
