Kyle Field, home of Texas A&M University’s American football team, is to be fitted with 23 new suites as part of plans to enhance the fan experience at the 103,000-capacity stadium.
The suites will be fitted in the south end of the stadium, which is the fourth largest in the US. Construction will commence following the final game of the 2022 season, with the suites expected to be ready for the start of the 2023 campaign.
As part of the project, the first seven rows of Kyle Field’s South Mid Bench sections 240-246 will be removed to make way for the new suites, although the changes are not expected to impact season ticket holders during the 2022 season.
Season ticket holders impacted by the project beyond the 2022 season will be presented with several options, including the ability to participate in an exclusive seat selection process that will feature available seating options throughout Kyle Field.
The suites will have their own level in the south end of the stadium and will include private elevator access and a private corridor. The announcement comes after Texas A&M revealed last week that a record 37,000 students had purchased season tickets for the upcoming campaign.
Ross Bjork, director of athletics at Texas A&M, said: “Our goal is to ensure that Kyle Field, the Home of the 12th Man, remains the pinnacle for college football stadiums.
“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 Texas A&M.”
Last year, ASM Global agreed a deal to oversee bookings for Kyle Field. The deal with Texas A&M also includes the 13,000-seat Reed Arena, home of the college’s basketball and volleyball teams.
ASM Global is helping to deliver live music, family entertainment, esports tournaments and other programming to Kyle Field and Reed Arena.
