WKU ATHLETICS | Videoboard Upgrades Getting Ready to Begin on The Hill

02/08/2018 01:46 PM

WKU Athletics announced on Thursday that the videoboards at Houchens Industries-L.T. Smith Stadium and E.A. Diddle Arena will undergo renovations this spring.

The renovations will “increase the size of the viewing area by nearly 400 percent.”

“We are very excited for these major upgrades to the fan experience at our two largest venues for next season,” said Director of Athletics Todd Stewart in a press release.

The videoboards inside the athletic department’s two biggest venues will add “state-of-the-art high definition videoboards increasing their viewing area and clarity over the current screens in the venues.”

Also part of the project will be to renovate the sound system inside Diddle Arena and to put up a new scoreboard at the WKU Soccer Complex.

The project will be funded through a strategic fundraising campaign handled by the Hilltopper Athletic Foundation, according to WKU Athletics.
