GAME DAY EXPERIENCE
The Spirit Walk begins two hours and 15 minutes before kickoff — or approximately at 3:45 p.m. — at the corner of Hoefgen Avenue and Commerce Street. The UTSA band will lead the Roadrunners football team down Hoefgen past the Brute Squad, Alumni Association and student tailgate parties in Sunset Station. Once the band crosses the VIA Bridge and enters Rowdy Town, it will split to form a tunnel for the team to walk through and into the Alamodome.
Food Trucks will offer dinner options prior to the game in Rowdy Town on the north plaza at the Alamodome. Live music on the Bud Light Stage will begin at 3 p.m. Free entertainment for kids will be provided in Rowdy Town by game-sponsor H-E-B, State Farm and Games to You.
Fans entering the Alamodome will notice new permanent UTSA markings in selected elevators and hallways. The brand new playing surface features permanently painted UTSA logos at midfield and in the end zones. Walls lining the southeast tunnel where the Roadrunners enter the field have been painted orange and blue.
More than 400 freshmen signed up during summer orientations and purchased jerseys to participate in the Rowdy Rush and greet the team on the field prior to each home game. A new #BirdsUp flag will join the Come and Take It, Texas, City of San Antonio and UTSA flags leading the team onto the field.
Merchandise sales counters inside the Alamodome have been expanded and relocated to the Plaza and Club Level concourses outside of Sections 107, 117, 139 and 205. Merchandise also will be available in Rowdy Town before the game.
Additional concessions operations have been opened including mixed beverage locations on all three levels of the Alamodome. Alcoholic beverages now can be carried between levels.
A new customer service text messaging system will be available throughout the UTSA football season. Customers who encounter difficulties with unruly fans or facilities maintenance issues may text 69050 to request immediate assistance from the Alamodome staff. All assistance texts must begin with the word “Alamo” and must include the type of request (i.e., spill or unruly fan) along with the Section, Row and Seat Number of the person requesting assistance.
