Texas A&M gets approval to renovate and expand Kyle Field
The Aggies are now scheduled to have SEC's largest stadium starting in 2015.
Texas A&M received approval on Wednesday from the A&M System Board of Regents to embark upon a massive renovation and expansion of Kyle Field.
The two-year, $450 million project will expand the stadium's capacity from its current 82,589 to 102,500 in August 2015.
But that's not all:
A new façade will envelope the stadium, with new exterior plaza/mall areas that will enhance tailgating and stadium access and demonstrate Texas A&M’s core values and significant moments in Aggie football history. Inside the stadium, there will be increased chair-back seating and additional suites, loge boxes and premium seating with club areas, along with the elimination of all sightline issues. Other amenities will include the latest gameday technology, wider concourses, additional restrooms and enhanced concession areas.
Construction will be sequenced and phased to allow the playing of home football games in the stadium for the 2013-14 seasons. The project will begin following the Aggies' final 2013 home game that takes place on Nov. 9.
When the expansion is completed -- and assuming no other stadiums expand in the meantime -- Kyle Field will rank first in the
