The Buildings and Grounds Committee of the University of Virginia have granted their approval of a new audio-visual system for Scott Stadium, where the men’s football team plays several times a year.
The existing scoreboard was built in 2009.
“The existing video board measures 21 feet tall by 28 feet wide and 21 feet is just the video board,” Raucher said. “The overall structure is 54 feet tall.”
That’s the second smallest such scoreboard in the Atlantic Coast Conference with Boston College the only school with something with smaller dimensions.
“The proposed videoboard will be 54 feet tall by 125 feet wide which will place us in the top three in the ACC with Clemson and Florida State,” Raucher said.
The project has a cost of $13.8 million. There will be an advertising opportunity on the rear side of the scoreboard.
