Texas A&M Unveil Historic Stadium Redevelopment Plan

May 3, 2013

Texas A&M has revealed plans to redevelop the Kyle Field Stadium in a move that is described as ‘one of the largest college football stadium redevelopments in history’.

The move would cost $450m and see the stadium increase from around 82,000 seats to 102,500.

Work is scheduled to begin after the 2013 season and the team will still play their home games there during the process. The stadium is due to be complete by 2015.

The plans include sightlines being revised, new boxes and premium suites, the installation of new gameday technology and concession areas, and a new plaza and mall area.

Texas A&M President R. Bowen Loftin said: “As we have seen with Texas A&M’s transition into the Southeastern Conference, athletics can play a key role in increasing the visibility of the entire university.

“The Kyle Field project is yet another element of enhancing Texas A&M’s profile.”

Eric Hyman, Texas A&M’s director of athletics, added: “This significant project is a shared vision and shared experience for all of our fans. Upon completion, we will have immense pride in Kyle Field.

“It will be unmatched anywhere in the country, with Texas A&M’s history and traditions woven throughout the stadium and its surroundings.”

Donations and the sale of seat licenses will help pay towards the redevelopment, along with student fees, ticket revenus and a ‘preferred facilities access agreement between the Bryan-College Station Convention and Visitors Bureau (BCSCVB) and Texas A&M’.
