Texas A&M's Kyle Field to hold 102,500
May 1, 2013
COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) - Texas A&M's Kyle Field will become the largest stadium in the Southeastern Conference after university regents approved a $450 million redevelopment plan.
The stadium's capacity will increase from 82,589 to 102,500 in the expansion, making it just larger than Tennessee's Neyland Stadium's 102,455.
The renovation will began after the 2013 football season and should be finished for the 2015 season. The team will play in the stadium during the project, which calls for various improvements, suites and premium seating in a facility that opened in 1927.
The project will be funded by donations, seat licenses, student fees and ticket revenue, as well as a preferred facilities agreement between the Bryan-College Station convention and visitors bureau that will use hotel and tax revenue for the next 30 years.
