CVB/Chamber Study Reveals Kyle Field Economic ImpactFeatured Stories, News Tuesday, September 25th, 2012
The B/CS Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) and Chamber of Commerce met Tuesday morning with the local media, elected officials, and others interested in the economic impact of Texas A&M University home football games.
A consultant hired by the chamber and CVB reported that if Kyle Field were closed for an expansion, losses would include 955 jobs and $21 million dollars in payroll in Brazos County, along with a reduction of $2.8 million dollars in local property taxes.
During 2011, the incremental direct spending of fans, media, sponsors, and teams associated with A&M games at Kyle Field tallied $120 million. Local tax receipts generated $5.8 million, household income was measured at $56 million, and 2,400 jobs, or nearly 3% of employment in Brazos County, was tied to those games.
