TAMU provides 2014 update on redevelopment of Kyle Field

Texas A&M University

New scoreboard projected to be the largest in collegiate athletics

Thursday, February 20, 2014 - 7:46am

John Sharp, chancellor of The Texas A&M University System, today hosted a briefing on the redevelopment of Kyle Field. Speakers included representatives from the A&M University System, Populous and Manhattan-Vaughn.

“This year is a transition year for us in terms of the work being done on Kyle Field,” said Sharp. “And I’m pleased to report that the team working on this project is doing a fantastic job; we are both on time and on budget for the 2014 season.”

Sharp announced several amendments to the original plans developed by architect Populous, including increasing capacity from 94,000 to 102,500, adding canopies on the east and west upper decks, and a special 12th Man section that will remain empty on the second deck of the east stand to represent the burning desire to serve. Manhattan-Vaughn also introduced renderings of the scoreboard on the south end of the stadium, projected to be the largest in collegiate athletics and almost twice the size of the board from last year.

“It’s amazing to see the progress being made on the renovation and expansion of Kyle Field, clearly reflecting the almost around the clock work being done by Manhattan-Vaughn,” said Dr. Mark Hussey, interim president of Texas A&M University. “Without question, Kyle Field will be a source of tremendous pride for all of us — students, former students and Aggie fans everywhere. It also will put the Bryan-College Station community even more on the national map as a major destination and help underscore the ‘win-win’ and mutually beneficial relationship in which we entered with local officials to help fund construction through the sharing of our campus facilities.”

Kyle Field is currently undergoing a $450 million redevelopment project that began immediately following the last home game of the 2013 Texas A&M football season. It is regarded as one of the most intimidating venues in college football.

The project was approved by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board in July of last year on the heels of an agreement between the Brazos County Commissioners Court to support an agreement between Texas A&M University and the Bryan-College Station Convention and Visitors Bureau to provide preferred access and rates to facilities at Texas A&M to promote tourism in the region; additional funding support was provided by Brazos County, which agreed to provide a portion of the hotel occupancy tax revenue to the project.
