Kyle Field Redevelopment Plans

During the Fall of 1904, a man by the name of Edwin Jackson Kyle, class of 1899 and horticulture professor, became president of Texas A&M’s, General Athletics Association. Kyle wanted to develop an athletic field that would promote A&M athletics, but Texas A&M was unwilling to provide funds. Well, that didn’t stop Kyle, because he fenced off a section on the southwest corner of campus, and with his own two hands and hard earned money, started building Kyle Field. Over the years, more seating has been added, they switched from real grass to Astroturf, then back to real grass and built a new training and rehabilitation facility. Other than a few adjustments, much of Kyle Field has remained untouched since it was first completed in 1927. At least until now…

Kyle Field will undergo major renovations, costing $450,000,000, making it louder, bigger and better than any college football stadium around. Kyle Field is already regarded as one of the most intimidating college football stadiums in the Nation; just imagine the cheering of the 12th Man in a fully enclosed, and lowered stadium. The seating capacity inside Kyle Field is currently 82,600… but after renovations 19,900 seats will be added making the new seating capacity a whopping 102,500!
