Tailgating at A&M

Tailgating at Kyle Field before an Aggies game is a time-honored tradition down in College Station, Texas. Aggie fans enjoy their tailgating as much as anyone and Kyle Field aims to make everyone feel welcome.

On game days fans will be allowed to tailgate starting at 7:00 AM—in conjunction with the parking lot opening times. There are a number of tailgating locations around Kyle Field with grass tailgating areas and reserved tailgating areas. Check out this very helpful interactive map from Texas A&M to see the exact tailgating locations.

One of the most popular spots for Aggie fans to tailgate is Aggie Park. Located across the street and just east of Kyle Field, Aggie Park is the spot for all fans to congregate before kickoff. This is one of the grass tailgating areas and fans can bring their tents and enjoy some BBQ and pregame activities. Some rules to keep in mind for tailgating in Aggie Park include: the use of recreational generators is permitted, BBQ grills on trailers are not allowed, no driving or parking is allowed on the green spaces, and tailgating supplies must be carried from the designated loading areas.

When to Arrive at Kyle Field on Gameday

Kyle Field is one of the best college football stadiums in the country, so you can be sure that on gameday the crowd is always big. The stadium can hold just over 100,000 fans and is the third largest U.S. stadium in terms of capacity. Knowing that there will be a lot of people on gameday it might be a good idea to try and arrive early.

If you are tailgating you will probably be there early anyway, but what about the fans that want to go straight to the stadium and into their seats? Luckily, the stadium opens 90 minutes prior to kickoff for every Texas A&M football game. Kyle Field has over 10 entry points to get into the stadium, but your ticket should tell you which entrance you should be using. Some entrances are designated for specific groups of ticket holders, so be sure to take a good look at your ticket to confirm which entrance you are supposed to enter.

With a stadium that could at any point have over 100,000 people on gameday, it is a good idea to beat the crowd, get through security, and into your seats before kickoff. For more information about the specific entry points check out Texas A&M’s official gameday guide.

Finding Parking at Kyle Field on Gameday
