Nashville SC pick Daktronics for LED displays

Major League Soccer’s Nashville SC has selected Daktronics to design, manufacture and install six LED displays throughout the club’s under-construction stadium.

As well as the main video display at one end of the facility, auxiliary, fascia, field-level and entry displays are included with the project to be completed for the stadium’s opening in 2022.

The main feature is a video display featuring 10-millimeter pixel spacing and measuring approximately 34ft high by 60ft wide.

An auxiliary video display in the opposite corner of the stadium from the main display will also feature 10-millimeter pixel spacing and measure more than 20ft high by 54ft wide.

To engage fans and share the video and information they desire, these displays are capable of variable content zoning. This allows each to show one large image or to be divided into multiple zones to show any combination of live video, instant replays, up-to-the-minute statistics, graphics and animations, and sponsorship messages.

Daktronics regional sales manager Kyle Adams said:

The LED technology at Nashville SC Stadium will help create an amazing atmosphere for the club and their fans. We’re thrilled to be a part of bringing soccer to Nashville and helping them succeed. It’s an honour to work with their team and we look forward to the unveiling of the stadium and technology when they host their first games in 2022.

An entry gate display featuring 16-millimeter pixel spacing and measuring roughly 22ft high by 40ft wide will welcome fans to the stadium and share additional branding, upcoming event and corporate partnership information.

Connecting with fans from the moment they arrive will help build their experience and prepare them for the action about to take place on the pitch.

Surrounding the fans along the seating fascia and surrounding the players on the pitch will be long, narrow LED displays.

The two fascia displays will measure approximately 3ft high by 262ft wide and feature 16-millimeter pixel spacing while the pitch-level display will measure roughly two feet high by 560 feet in length and feature 10-millimeter pixel spacing.

These three displays provide the opportunity to highlight corporate partners throughout events while also sharing additional branding and statistical information for the fans throughout the stadium.

Nashville SC will continue its participation in MLS in 2021 playing at Nissan Stadium before moving into its new and permanent stadium in 2022, which will be the largest soccer-specific stadium in the United States.
