Alamodome Information and ScheduleThe Alamodome is a multi-purpose facility that is primarily used as a football/basketball stadium and convention center in San Antonio, Texas. The facility opened on May 15, 1993, at a cost of $186 million. It was constructed after voters in 1989 approved a five-year, half-cent sales tax increase that was collected by eventual owner VIA Metropolitan Transit, the local transit authority. Upon completion of the facility, it was nearly debt free and showed a net operating profit within its first two years of operation. On June 9, 1994, ownership of the Alamodome was transferred from the transit authority to the City of San Antonio. The general contractor for the Alamodome and adjacent transit facility was Lyda Swinerton Builders, the Texas subsidiary of the San Francisco-based Swinerton Inc.
