Update on renovations to Kyle Field

Texas A&M President, R. Bowen Loftin recently met with a local radio station to talk about some renovations and possible expansions to to Kyle Field.

Loftin said that they are currently looking to renovate the 90 year old lower decks of the stadium, and are also considering the concession and rest room areas. Loftin said that they will take input from all areas of campus including faculty, students, and alumni on the possible changes.

"Many college fans want more amenities than they once had," Loftin said. "We're going to look at a large variety of options from a selected vendor, well known in the sports venue field."

Loftin expanded by saying that they will not use any state or tuition dollars for the renovations, and stressed to the students that any construction will not effect availability for student tickets "Typically you'll find 6-8-10 thousand student tickets available, usually in the corner or end zone for students to utilize but that's not how it works here." The Aggie students take up approximately 30,000 of the 85,000 seats at Kyle Field.
