San Antonio City Council approved 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.

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.
