SEC football stadiums by capacity
LSU’s Tiger Stadium will be much louder this fall. Deemed as one of the best venues — if not the best — in the country, Death Valley just got bigger and better.
LSU announced an official capacity to the newly renovated stadium at 102,321, exactly 500 seats more than Alabama’s Bryant-Denny Stadium. Coincidence? No chance. LSU’s AD Joe Alleva said Alabama fans will need their telescopes to see the field this year.
Tiger Stadium is now the SEC’s third largest stadium, behind Texas A&M’s Kyle Field and Tennessee’s Neyland Stadium. Four Southeastern Conference stadiums have eclipsed the 100,000 mark.
Please note that cecause construction will be done in phases to Kyle Field, the capacity for the 2014 season is expected to actually be 107,000-109,000.
Here’s a look at all 14 stadiums and how they compare in capacity:
|Texas A&M||Kyle Field||107,000||102,500|
|Florida||Ben Hill Griffin Stadium||88,548||NA|
