U of M sports venues' scoreboards will get a makeover
Scoreboards at the University of Michigan’s premier sports venues are getting a major upgrade. The U of M Athletic Department announced today that it has signed a deal to replace the aging scoreboards at Michigan Stadium, Crisler Arena and Yost Ice Arena with state of the art LED displays.
In a written statement, UM Athletic Director David Brandon says the department is excited.
“Our goal is to set a new, higher standard for our fan’s viewing experience and the game day atmosphere we create in our venues. These boards will be an important first step in achieving that goal.”
Demolition of the old video boards at the Big House began in March. New, larger LED video screens will be installed in both end zones by this August.
The total cost of the project is expected to be less than $20 million dollars.
