DETAILS

LocationCollege Station, Texas United States
ClientColeman & Associates
Size9.5 acres

Completed in 2015, Kyle Field represents the most extensive redevelopment of a collegiate athletic facility ever. Inspired by the theme “The Home of the 12th Man,” this project embodies the belief that at Texas A&M, fans don’t just watch the game, they affect the game. SWA worked closely with Populous to create the best college football experience in America. The redeveloped stadium’s east side still houses the famous student section, while the north side includes Kyle Field Park, honoring the greatest moments in Texas A&M’s history. This public plaza also serves as the primary pre- and post-game gathering space for 200,000 Aggies. On the west side, premium seat holders find a fully landscaped, upscale tailgating and gathering area, with high-quality concessions and the Hall of Champions leading to a majestic entrance. To enhance the noise level and intimidation factor at the stadium, the field was lowered and seating moved closer to the action. Canopies add a more comfortable, intimate, and amplified fan experience. The stadium’s four corners are now filled in with fans, creating the most intimidating environment in all of collegiate athletics—one which has come to be associated with “Aggieland.” Critically, the entire redevelopment was completed without impacting Texas A&M’s football schedule.
