Elon Announces Plans for New Video Board at Rhodes Stadium

ELON, N.C. – Elon University Athletics announced today, July 6, a partnership with Daktronics (NASDAQ-DAKT) and IMG College to provide a new main video display and audio system at Rhodes Stadium on Elon’s campus. Construction on the project is underway.

“We are confident this upgrade at Rhodes Stadium will significantly improve the fan experience at Elon football games,” said Elon Director of Athletics Dave Blank. “This project would not be possible without IMG and we are thrilled to once again work with Daktronics, an industry leader. This improvement will provide Elon fans with a tremendous in-game experience for many years to come.”

The new LED video display is capable of showing one large image or it can be divided into multiple windows to show any combination of live video, instant replays, up-to-the-minute statistics, graphics and animations, and sponsorship messages. It measure 38-feet wide and 22-feet tall, which is larger than the previous video display at Rhodes Stadium, and will provide fans a higher quality and resolution of video and graphics.
