Kyle Field is an outdoor football stadium located on the Texas A&M University campus in College Station, Texas. The stadium is also known as “the Home of 12th Man” in reference to A&M’s student section support providing the equivalent of an extra player to the Aggie squad. Kyle Field has been home to the Aggies football team since 1904, although it wasn’t a complete stadium until 1927. It is currently the largest football stadium in Texas until the University of Texas’ DKR Memorial Stadium upgrade is completed in 2008. Visiting teams have found Kyle Field to be one of the most intimidating stadiums to visit in the country. Visiting fans will find the atmosphere, tradition, and student support for the Aggies to be unparalleled.
In addition to Texas A&M football games, Kyle Field also hosts the Texas A&M Corps of Cadets (ROTC) Final Review as well as high school football games as part of the Texas high school football playoffs and the cross-town rivalry between Bryan High School and A&M Consolidated. Kyle Field has also hosted memorable games such as A&M’s emotional comeback against Texas one week after the Aggie Bonfire tragedy, and the game played after the attacks of 9/11/01 when on short notice the student body wore shirts that striped the three decks red, white, and blue.
Plans are in the works for a future expansion that would give Kyle Field a capacity of more than 110,000, though no date for completion has been set. Attend a game at Kyle Field and witness the power of the 12th Man and the strong traditions of A&M and Aggie football. Buy Kyle Field tickets today and don’t miss out on the action!

Kyle Field Experience Kyle Field in College Station is a great football venue, and offers a great experience, however the field itself desperately needs updating. The stands themselves are old, and the whole structure could use a makeover to bring it into the year 2010. Concessions are blah compared to other stadiums. I enjoy going to the games, but the experience has faded over the years as I have gone to other venues. Seating in general for the whole stadium is crowded. I'm an Aggie, and traditions are great, but chnage can be good as well. Also, on a side note while I'm on traditions at A&M, I'm in favor of cheerleaders being added to the current yell leader tradition. August 10, 2010
