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.
