Below are pictures I took of the new scoreboard currently being installed at Faurot Field. These were taken August 20th. Since then, the screen panels have all been installed.
Some quick facts about the new scoreboard:
Cost: $3.8 million
Size: 30 feet high, 80 feet wide (roughly 3 1/2 times larger than the previous one)
Technology: HD-X screen with state-of-the-art LED displays
Previous Scoreboard: Diamond Vision scoreboard constructed prior to the 1997 season. MU cited antiquated technology, customer complaints, and rising maintenance costs as the reason for replacing the board.
Misc: A new sound system will also be installed at Faurot Field
Part of a $5 million project between MU and Daktronics that will include new scoreboards at MU’s baseball and soccer stadiums.
Expected to be finished before MU’s home opener vs. Bowling Green (9/12/09)
