With the news of Kyle Field looking to finally get a facelift and capacity expanded to 102,000, how does a 100,000-plus expansion stack up against current SEC stadium sizes?
Tennessee’s Neyland Stadium still seats the most with 102,455. Alabama’s Bryant-Denny Stadium is right behind Neyland with a capacity of 101,821.
LSU is also planning an expansion to get to the capacity of 100,000, and the SEC will have four stadiums that seat 100,000-plus in a few years.
All projected numbers have an expansion and/or facelift planned in the future. A Kentucky house bill approved bonding for a Commonwealth Stadium renovation of $110 million in February, but I haven’t seen any projected numbers for seating capacity yet.
