When Louisville City Football Club’s sparkling new stadium opens in 2020, supports will be treated to eight LED displays from Daktronics, the leader in integrated LED super systems for professional sports teams in America.
Lynn Family Stadium, LouCity’s new soccer-specific stadium with seating for over 11,000 and a capacity of 14,000, will feature an impressive 40 foot by 72.5-foot main video display in the Waterfront Supporter Zone along with seven more displays aimed at making the supporter experience top-notch.
“We want Lynn Family Stadium to be a great experience for our supporters and having top-quality LED displays is crucial to the fan experience,” LouCity President Brad Estes said. “The sightlines in our new soccer-specific stadium are second to none and our Daktronics displays will enhance the game-day experience.”
The main display features 13HD pixel layout and is capable of variable content zoning to display multiple zones of content – stats, replay, video features, and scores – during pre-match activities while focusing on displaying live video during the match.
“We’re excited for the Boys in Purple to take the field in their new venue for the first time in 2020,” said Trent Poelker, Daktronics sales representative. “Daktronics prides itself in making every moment matter for all spectators on the biggest stages in sports, including matches at LouCity’s new home. LouCity is one of the most successful clubs in American soccer and we’re honored to be a part of their new home.”
In addition to the main video board, two additional displays will be installed to the left and right of the main display. They measure 40 feet high by 14.5 feet wide and feature 16-millimeter line spacing to show supplemental information to the main display.
On the backside of the main display, a rear-facing display measures 24 feet high by 49 feet wide and features 16-millimeter line spacing. Two ribbon displays measure nearly 4 feet high by 25 feet wide along the seating fascia. Surrounding the playing field, a pitch-perimeter display measuring 3 feet high by 495 feet wide and featuring 10-millimeter line spacing will be installed.
The final screen, a 14.5 by 25-foot screen located in the beer garden on the northeast side of the stadium, will be available for supporters before, during and after LouCity events.
