The biggest video scoreboard in professional sports is ready for its big reveal at SoFi Stadium.
The National Football League announced Wednesday that SoFi Stadium’s Oculus video scoreboard is now complete. The 360-foot, double-sided 4K video board weighs roughly 2.2 million pounds and features 70,000 square feet of digital LED lighting. The scoreboard also has more than 260 speakers included in the structure, according to the NFL. The Rams declined to comment on the cost of the scoreboard.
Kevin Demoff, Rams chief operating officer said,
“It’s three times the size of the [Dallas] Cowboys video board, not that we’re competing with them on that.”
It should be a spectacular feeling going to games in Los Angeles now that they will have their own brand new stadium to play in. Here’s to new beginnings in LA!
SoFi Stadium is set to open for the 2020 NFL season and will be shared by the Rams and Chargers.
Rams owner Stan Kroenke privately financed SoFi Stadium, which has a $5 billion price tag that could eventually eclipse $10 billion, according to the Wall Street Journal. The complex will also have a 5G communications network and high-speed WiFi to deliver faster speeds. Digital ticketing will be provided by Ticketmaster through its SafeTix product.
“Our fans expect a premium technological experience and they’re going to get that,” Demoff said.
The stadium’s surrounding Hollywood Park campus will also feature retail and office space and will be the new home the league’s NFL Media and NFL Network properties starting in 2021.
SoFi Stadium is also set to host Super Bowl in 2022, the NCAA College Football Playoff National Championship in 2023, and events for the 2028 Summer Olympics.
