Ball State to install video boards in Scheumann, Worthen
The Ball State athletic department is announcing the installation of video boards in Scheumann Stadium and Worthen Arena on Sunday.
A temporary video board was installed for last season’s football game against Ohio on Nov. 14.
“Everybody came to realize the tremendous value that the boards could bring to both Scheumann and Worthen,” Ball State Athletic Director Bill Scholl said.
The boards will be leased from Dodd Technologies Inc., and ReelVideo Systems and will cost $1,065,000 for a three-year lease, the Muncie Star Press reported.
The board in Scheumann Stadium will be at the south end zone, as opposed to the southeast corner where the board was on Nov. 14.
Scholl said the boards will not only help boost fan support of Ball State, but also help in recruiting for the individual teams.
Both video boards will be installed in late August, in time for Ball State football’s opening day game against Ill. State.
