Kyle Field is a college football stadium located on the campus of Texas A&M University in College Station. Kyle Field has been the home os the Texas A&M Aggies football team since 1904 and is also the the home of the 12th Man. With a capacity of more than 83,000. TAMU officials have speculated in recent weeks about expansion plans for Kyle Field which could boost capacity to 115,000 with the addition of a south endzone wraparound seating.
In the fall of 1904, Edwin Kyle, an 1899 graduate of Texas A&M, was named president of the General Athletics Association. Kyle wanted to secure and develop an athletic field to promote the school’s athletics. Kyle fenced off a section of the southeast corner of the A&M campus that had been assigned for agricultural use. Using his own money, he purchased a covered grandstand and built wooden bleachers to raise the seating capacity to 500 people. In 1921, the November game between the Texas A&M Aggies and the University of Texas at Kyle Field became the first college football game to offer a live, play-by-play broadcast.
