High Definition Video Board & New Sound System to be
ULM's Malone Stadium for 2011 Season
MONROE, La. - ULM's Malone Stadium will be home to the second-largest on-campus high definition video board in the state of Louisiana, ULM Director of Athletics Bobby Staub announced at a press conference on Friday. The project, which is pending final approval by the University of Louisiana System Board of Supervisors, will also include a new state-of-the-art sound system and is scheduled to be completed in preparation for the 2011 season.
"This is a project that will certainly add to in-game experience of our fans as well as that of our student-athletes," Staub said. "This is a project that has been a long time coming and we appreciate the patience of our fans. With the quality equipment that is being installed, it will be well worth the wait. This is an exciting time for ULM Athletics."
"This is very, very exciting news not for just the players, but also for our fans and our ability to recruit," ULM football head coach Todd Berry said. "The new board and sound system will provide a great opportunity to showcase our student-athletes and our University. This is not going to be just a videoboard; it is going to be a very nice videoboard."
The new 15-millimeter high definition video display board will be one of the largest in the Sun Belt Conference in addition to being the second largest on-campus board in the state. The board will feature nearly 1,600 square feet of total video space, including a 23 feet tall by 49 feet wide area dedicated to video and 450 square feet of video advertising space.
In addition to the high definition video board and sound system being installed at Malone Stadium, ULM's baseball, softball and soccer complexes will all be receiving new scoreboards over the next year.
