It has been three months since the $450 million renovations to Texas A&M’s Kyle Field began. On Tuesday, school officials met with the media and updated the progress of the renovation project, revealing that Kyle Field will have the largest scoreboard in the country.
According to the Austin Statesman, the scoreboard will be a whopping 47 feet tall, 163 feet wide and 7,661 square feet. Its construction is expected to be completed for the Aggies’ first home game on September 6.
The first phase of Kyle Field’s renovations is projected to be finished by the time the season begins and will give the home crowd a capacity of 106,511, up from 82,600.
Additionally, according to the San Antonio Express-News, A&M chancellor John Sharp said that by the time the entire project is completed in 2015, the number of women’s restrooms will have doubled and the cell phone service in the stadium will improve.
