Irish eyes are on the Alamo City–and that should mean plenty of “green” for San Antonio next month.
“Notre Dame has one of the biggest national following–and, when you pair them up with Army on Veteran’s Day Weekend–it’s going to be something that’s really special here in San Antonio” Rick Hill with the Valero Alamo Bowl told KTSA News, pointing out this is the first time Notre Dame’s “Shamrock Series” will return to a City.
The game is also expected to bring quite an economic impact with it.
“The game was here originally in 2009 when Notre Dame played Washington State. It had a $27-million economic impact. We’re anticipating a bigger attendance, a bigger weekend–and, $30-million to inject in to the San Antonio economy” Hill said.
Meanwhile, the game is another feather in San Antonio’s cap when it comes to being a stage for big time sporting events.
“The City has invested so much in to Downtown–and, that’s really what stands us apart form others as we go after these major sporting events” Hill said.
The game is set for November 12th inside the Alamodome.
