Bud Light Announces Renewed Partnership with UTSA Athletics Fans can celebrate with the Official Beer Partner of UTSA Athletics at the home opener this weekend  

SAN ANTONIO (September 6, 2023) – As the University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) Roadrunners continue the 2023 football season with their home opener this weekend against I-35 rival Texas State University, fans packing the Alamodome can cheer on the home team with a cold Bud Light, which is once again the Official Beer Partner of Roadrunners Athletics. Fans will be greeted during the pregame with tailgating and promotions on the concourse and fans are invited to join the official Bud Light tailgate before or during the game at the Birds Landing Tailgate located in Lot B.  

UTSA fans can hear from head coach Jeff Traylor during his weekly radio show tonight on Ticket 760, broadcasting live at 7 p.m. each Wednesday (subject to change) throughout the season. Fans can watch the show live at Chicken N Pickle, where they can enjoy Bud Light specials and fun giveaway opportunities.  

During all away games this season, San Antonians can gather to cheer on the Roadrunners at watch parties being held at the Official UTSA Headquarters, Little Woodrow’s – Braun Road or at The Bend Sports Bar.

Later this season, fans will be able to purchase limited-edition UTSA-branded Bud Light for game day. As the official beer partner of UTSA Athletics, Bud Light is proud to feature the Roadrunners logo and helmet image on limited-edition packages for this football season. Later this fall, the limited-edition 16-ounce Bud Light aluminum bottles can be found at the Alamodome on game days, and additional packages will be available at bars, restaurants and on grocery and convenience store shelves at participating retailers throughout San Antonio.  

“We are very thankful to Silver Eagle for their support of UTSA Athletics,” said UTSA Vice President for Intercollegiate Athletics Lisa Campos. “We’re always looking for new ways to extend our reach in the San Antonio community and beyond, and this partnership will give fans even more opportunities to show their support for the Roadrunners.”  

“Silver Eagle Beverages is thrilled to continue being a part of making UTSA Football and UTSA Athletics even more exciting for all San Antonians,” said John L. Nau, III, chairman and CEO of Silver Eagle Beverages. “We encourage everyone to plan ahead and secure a safe ride home for you and your group following every game.”  

Anheuser-Busch, Silver Eagle Beverages, and UTSA Athletics share a profound dedication to educating and encouraging fans to drink responsibly. In support of those efforts, Anheuser-Busch will bring its Decide to Ride campaign to game days, urging fans to plan ahead for a safe ride home. Fans are encouraged to Decide to Ride by using Uber or having another safe ride plan because you can’t drive drunk if you don’t drive there. If using Uber this weekend, fans can enter promo code UTSA1 for $5 off their Uber rides, while supplies last. New codes are available for each game and details will be posted to the @SilverEagleBeverages Instagram.
