Report: A&M To Expand Kyle Field To 102,000

They say everything’s bigger in Texas.  Well with Texas A&M’s successful move into the mega-wealthy SEC, the Aggies’ home football stadium is about to get a whole lot bigger.

According to multiple reports, Kyle Field’s expansion project is on the verge of getting final approval and the plans — according to Billy Luicci, senior writer for TexAgs.com — will raise the stadium’s capacity to 102,000 fans.

Kyle Field currently seats 82,589 which would mean a 25% bounce in capacity if the above numbers are correct.  At 102,000, Texas A&M’s stadium would challenge Tennessee’s Neyland Stadium for the title of largest in the conference.  Neyland currently holds 102,455 while Alabama’s Bryant-Denny Stadium has room for 101,821.

Projections for A&M’s expansion project last fall listed the total cost at $450 million.

This is just further proof of what we wrote way back in 2010 — Of all the potential expansion partners for the SEC, Texas A&M would be the no-doubt-about-it, guaranteed best fit.  The Aggies proved that on the football field last fall.  It looks like they’ll prove it with their field moving forward.

Kyle is kind of a magnificent dump. An odd stadium built in stages on top of a 1920 ish baseline. Friends who went to the stadium for the UF-A&M game said it was really bad on concessions, has a problem with bats, bathrooms are not up to par, etc. On the other hand, the Ags seem to have made a shrine out of the place, and pack a campus full of students into it.

Looking at pictures of it, it is the most vertical stadium I have ever seen, and its open at one end. If the Ags are smart, they will take a page from the Ducks stadium and fix it so the noise is funneled back onto the field. At any rate, its good news to see modernization of this caliber occur in the SEC. If the Ags can fill it (and adding 16 - 20,000 more butts in any stadium is a major league challenge these days), it will be impressive. Now, if they will JUST lower their ticket prices and give visiting fans better seats.....

They definitely are doubling down with their new chips...trying to get everything done before the fervor cools? Good idea.

The rumor I here, is that they are planing on leveling the 1920's footprint in stages and replace it with the new stadium.  That would mean everything except "The Zone" which replaced the old 1924 horseshoe style end zone, in the early 2000's will be replaced.  My guess is that the visitors section will get better simply because there is no longer a track that the seating has to be designed around.

As far as filling it, right now there is alot more demand, then there are seats (especially for conference games).   They also have roughly 20,000 more students, then student seats, so I am sure a portion of the new seating will be for students. 

For anyone who thinks that the university will not increase the student section, keep in mind that the university charged students $350 for a football sports pass in 2012 (which included tickets to all regualr season home games for all sports).
