UTSA is a brand new program, and the fans are jumping on board as fast as they can. San Antonio built the Alamodome with the hopes of luring an NFL team to the city and never succeeded, so fans have adopted UTSA as their local football team. You’ll find the fans strongly identify with the team and even though the program hasn’t exactly been off to the best start the fans still come out in strong numbers each week filling the lower bowl of the Alamodome. The fans are extremely welcoming as well, so you’ll have no problem making friends regardless of what team you support.
One of the best things about the stadium itself is the dome, it keeps in all the crowd noise and can become deafening during key moments throughout the game. The loud crowd noise creates a very hostile environment for an opposing player and gives the Roadrunners a significant edge. The resonant acoustics of the dome create a great atmosphere that is one of the loudest in all of Conference USA.
The Alamodome was built to be an NFL stadium. As a result, the concessions among the best around. The stadium serves the usual gameday favorites but also features gourmet dogs, fajitas, a salad bar, barbecue, pizza, and Earl Campbell’s Hot Links sandwiches. Also, the stadium’s off campus location allows for alcohol sales during UTSA games, so you’ll be able to wash down your food with a cold beer.
