Golden Gopher fans won't believe their eyes when they walk into Williams Arena this fall for the women's basketball team's exhibition game vs. Concordia, St. Paul on Oct. 31. After announcing plans in May to install a new center-hung LED scoreboard, LED fascia boards and a new sound system in Williams Arena, construction of the scoreboard and sound system are now complete.
The scoreboard and fascia boards were built and installed by Daktronics, Inc., while Minnesota-based Parsons Electric supplied the new sound system.
The new scoreboard screen is 11'7" tall and 13'8" wide and features an LED ring above and below the main video board.
The university also added a state-of-the-art control room in TCF Bank Stadium. The control room, designed and installed by Minnesota based Alpha Video, will run the videoboards in Mariucci Arena, TCF Bank Stadium and Williams Arena.
