SEC football stadiums by capacity

USATSI_4873818_154511880_lowres

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.

  • Not noted above is the expansion the university of mississippi that is already finalized. The university started with the tad pad and making the athletic facilities ‘flow’ together now. The additions to the football stadium will be to the north end zone and estimated to add an additional 10,000 seats.

    • I was going to say the same thing, Ole Miss is going to bowl in the north end zone. The final capacity will be around 71 or 72,000. It may still not be the biggest, but it is going to look great. I just hope Ole Miss gets started on the construction soon.

  • I hafta give it to Rocky Flop…Neyland Stadium is quite a sight to see on “Saturdays Down South”…I was there a few years back and it seemed like we were the only red dots in a sea of orange. Course it didnt help that we were getting drug up and down the field either.

    • It beats grown adults barking at you any day of the year.

      • Have to disagree. respectfully, I don’t care for our fans who bark in others faces, but hearing Rocky Top for every 3 yard gain really made me want to jump over the railing in October. The stadium is something to see for sure, but I wouldn’t go so far as to say the objects that crawl out from the hills are any better than a person who barks at you.

  • Also not mention is Commonwealth Stadium, which, I believe, is dropping down to around 60,000 seats in their upcoming renovation.

  • It is Davis Wade Stadium at Mississippi State NOT David Wade!

  • Missouri had a record attendance of 75,248 before the seat and box additions so they must not be counting the grass slope, rock M, or standing deck above in the new capacity figures
