SUBJECT:

Second Amendment to the Revised and Restated Alamodome License Agreement for the UTSA Intercollegiate Football Games


SUMMARY:

This Ordinance authorizes a second amendment to the Revised and Restated Alamodome License Agreement for the UTSA Intercollegiate Football Games to implement an annual buyout fee that covers Alamodome ticket and parking fees, and addresses the Ticket Service Charge Fee, which will expire in December 2019 in accordance with the First Amendment. The buyout fee proposed will provide a guaranteed $2.6 million in revenue over the term of the agreement and ensures UTSA's contribution to the Alamodome Debt Service payment. In addition to the buyout fee, UTSA will continue to pay for all game day expenses such as event support staff and security costs. Before the start of the 2025 football season, the City will evaluate whether this agreement is mutually beneficial and will make recommendations to Council regarding the remaining term of the contract ending in 2035. The revenues collected from buyout fees will be deposited in the Community & Visitor Facilities Fund.
