Demographics

College football fans are among the most passionate and loyal sports fans. Did you know that college football ranks second in fan avinity behind the NFL and that 60 percent of persons over 12 years of age identify themselves as a college football fan according to the ESPN Sports Poll.

While a fan may switch allegiances and adopt their local pro team when they change towns, the affinity they feel for their alma mater runs deep and a bowl sponsorship allows a company to tap into this passion. Supporters of the Valero Alamo Bowl are similarly loyal as 91 percent of the bowl’s option holders and 89 percent of the bowl’s sponsors renew each year. While college students attend bowl game, it’s college graduates and alumni who are there in large numbers.

The bottom line is the Valero Alamo Bowl fans are loyal and support our sponsors, so let the bowl help match you up with the events that best reach the audience you are seeking.

Current Sponsors

The Valero Alamo Bowl was formed in 1992 to stage an annual festival of events to bring enjoyment to South Texans and visitors alike, create positive national attention and economic impact to San Antonio as well as support higher education and local community causes.

The success of the bowl sponsorship program is crucial to these objectives. Specifically, sponsor support allows the game to grow its team payout (which results in securing higher ranked teams and a larger economic impact for the city), keep ticket prices affordable and support the bowl’s community outreach.

Volunteer

Without the hundreds of volunteers who donate their time, the Valero Alamo Bowl would not have secured its place as one of the most popular bowl games and fan destinations.

The support and hard work of our volunteers is apparent in the many events the bowl produces annually, including golf tournaments, team luncheons, galas, interactive areas, corporate sponsor parties and much more. Our volunteers make it happen!

To inquire about volunteer duties for the Valero Alamo Bowl, please email Lara Smedley, Senior Manager, Events & Marketing, Valero Alamo Bowl.

Or for those who want more of a leadership role and participation in the bowl’s fund-raising activities, you can also get involved through any of our committees.

Bowl Committees

As the Valero Alamo Bowl continues to grow in size and prestige, the bowl will expand its reach and involve more of the local community. The committee is a group of San Antonio’s dedicated business and civic leaders who serve as Valero Alamo Bowl ambassadors aiding our fundraising efforts and volunteering for our festival of events.

Persons interested in serving on the Valero Alamo Bowl Committee should email Rick Hill or contact him at (210) 704-6388.

Members are expected to attend committee meetings, volunteer their time to help at one or more bowl events throughout the year and provide leads and/or introductions of companies and persons who could benefit from being involved with the Valero Alamo Bowl.
There is not a fund-raising requirement to serve on the Committee. However, leads that turn in sold sponsorships, group ticket purchases and budget relieving in-kind support translate into prizes such as game and party tickets. Join the fun to help the bowl while helping you and your company network.
