Kyle Field is the college football stadium located on the campus of Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas. Kyle Field has been the home to the Texas A&M Aggie football team since 1904. Kyle Field is the the Home of the 12th Man. With a capacity of more than 83,000, Kyle Field is the third largest football stadium in the State of Texas, after Darrell K. Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium in Austin and the Cotton Bowl in Dallas. Although university officials have speculated on expansion plans for Kyle Field which could boost capacity to 115,000 with the addition of a south endzone and wraparound seating, no firm steps have been taken to make these plans a reality. The addition of a south endzone and wraparound seating would cost $100 to $200 million.
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.
