With the announcement that Texas A&M's Kyle Field is being expanded and upgraded with the addition of tremendous ammenities, the Aggies 12th Man will be a much larger force for opponents to contend with in the near future!
The saying that “Everything is bigger in Texas,” will soon gain more significance with the proud announcement that Texas A&M will soon have the biggest football stadium in the SEC.
That’s a big feat considering that the conference features quite a few big berthas such as Tennessee’s Neyland Stadium (102,455) and Alabama’s Bryant Denny Stadium (101,821)
With the May 2013 announcement that Kyle field will be expanded to hold 102,500 fans, there will be plenty of room for the 12th Man and more at the Aggies football stadium. The expansion and stadium upgrades are expected to be completed in time for the 2015 football season.
The announcement comes on the heels of an historic 2012 football season that saw QB Johnny Manziel win the Heisman Trophy as Texas A&M posted an 11-2 record in their first season in the SEC. The season was also highlighted by a 29-24 win over Alabama who went on to win the BCS National Championship.
Along with increasing Kyle Field’s seating capacity from the current 82,589, a projected $450 million will be pumped into stadium improvements. Besides more seats, fans will also notice a new façade, wider concourses, new suites and club areas. The financing of the project will be paid for through donations, seat licenses, additional student fees and a tax on area hotels.
Based on 2012 collegiate stadium sizes, Texas A&M’s capacity increase will boost its ranking to the third largest stadium in the nation. The 102,500 seats in Kyle Field would place it only behind Michigan Stadium (109,901) and Penn State’s Beaver Stadium (106,572).
Kyle field first opened on September 24, 1927 and the original seating capacity was 32,890. Previous expansions were completed in 1953, 1967, 1980 and 2000.
