SAN ANTONIO -

The Alamodome generated more than a billion dollars in total economic impact based on attendance at events from 2003-2012, according to a survey conducted by Dr. Steve Niven, of the Saber Research Institute.   

The results indicate an overall economic impact of $1.7 billion, supporting more than 18,000full-time equivalent jobs over the 10-year period and resulting in workers earning more than $570 million.

The activities at the Alamodome translated into more than $114 million in tax revenues for state and local governments and over $116 million to the federal government during the same period.

Additionally, the Alamodome provides opportunities for the citizens of San Antonio to participate in events that they might not otherwise be able to attend, such as the year’s Major League Baseball Texas Rangers Exhibition Game.
