To strengthen Kyle Field’s in College Station Texas (US) position as the country’s premier college football venue, the Texas A&M University officials announced recently a construction project that will feature the addition of 23 new suites to the South end of Kyle Field.

‘Texas A&M’ stated that construction will commence following the final game of the 2022 season with suites expected to be ready for the start of the 2023 Aggie Football season.

The 102,733-capacity Kyle Track Field is the American football stadium located in the campus of Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas, United States. It has been home to the Texas A&M Aggies football team in rudimentary form since 1904 and as a permanent concrete stadium since 1927.

The Texas A&M University is a public land-grant research university in College Station, Texas, US. It was founded in 1876 and became the flagship institution of the Texas A&M University System in 1948. As of Fall 2021, Texas A&M’s student body is the largest in the United States.

The Texas A&M Aggies football program represents the Texas A&M University in the sport of American football. The Aggies compete in the Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) and the Western Division of the Southeastern Conference. Texas A&M football boasts three national titles and 18 conference titles. The team plays all home games at the newly redeveloped Kyle Field, a 102,733-person capacity outdoor stadium in the university campus.

Commented John Sharp, Chancellor of Texas A&M University System, “The best football stadium in the country is about to get even better. The Kyle Field project will make sure our stadium remains state-of-the-art and second to none.”

Maintained M. Katherine Banks, Texas A&M University President, “Athletics promotes spirit and unity that connects us as an Aggie Family and to our community. We are excited to kick off this project to continue to provide our fans with an excellent environment to enjoy Aggie football and support our great university.”

Remarked Ross Bjork, Texas A&M Director of Athletics, “Our goal is to ensure that Kyle Field, the Home of the 12th Man, remains the pinnacle for college football stadiums.”

‘Texas A&M’ further stated that gameday at the Kyle Field represents one of the iconic atmospheres in college athletics, and the revenue generated each time Aggie Football takes the field in front of the 12th Man is vital to supporting every Texas A&M athletic program and student-athlete on and off the field.

Added Bjork, “The mission of Texas A&M Athletics is to create opportunities through championship athletics, and we strive toward that goal by continuing to build the foundation of our department. This is a transformative time in college athletics and the addition of these suites will enhance the fan experience at Kyle Field, and the financial component from the new section will help support every student-athlete from our 20 varsity teams at the Texas A&M.”

As a part of the project, the first seven rows of Kyle Field’s South Mid Bench Sections 240-246 (Section 239 will not be impacted) will be removed to make way for the new suites. These changes will not impact season ticket holders during the 2022 season.

Considering these developments and to honor their support of Texas A&M Athletics, the 12th Man Foundation is committed to providing several options to South Mid Bench season ticket holders impacted by this project for seats beyond the 2022 season. This will include the ability to participate in an exclusive seat selection process that will feature available seating options throughout Kyle Field.

Additional information, as well as the option to opt into the exclusive seat selection process, will be communicated this Fall to impacted season ticket holders.

The story behind 12th Man is that on January 2nd, 1922, E. King Gill, a basketball player and former member of the Texas A&M football team, was in the stands during the Dixie Classic as the Aggies faced top-ranked, undefeated Centre College. Outgunned and with nearly all players injured, Coach Dana X. Bible called Gill down to the sideline. Gill suited up and stood ready to play throughout the game, forever becoming ‘the 12th Man’ in what was one of the greatest upsets in college football history, with the Aggies winning 22-14. This willingness to serve is tradition at Texas A&M.

The 12th Man Foundation’s mission is funding scholarships, programs and facilities in support of championship athletics.
