Your Turf Is Multipurpose. Make Sure Your Scoreboard Is Too.
When considering a stadium renovation or new construction, many athletic directors and coaches look at the multi-purpose use of artificial grass. Unfortunately, when it comes to choosing the right scoreboard, too many high schools and colleges don’t consider the many different uses that can be part of a multi-purpose display.
Fixed digit, or numeric scoreboards are ideal for tight budgets and dedicated playing areas, but for a more versatile solution, choose a Watchfire virtual scoreboard.
6 Scoreboards in One
With little fear of overuse, artificial turf lets you play multiple sports on the same field. For example, a football stadium can also host soccer, track and field, lacrosse, field hockey and rugby.
Likewise, an LED virtual football stadium scoreboard from Watchfire makes it fast and easy to reconfigure the communications in your facility for any sport. It’s like having seven scoreboards for the price of one.
- Change captions from “Half” to “Period” and from “Yards to Go” to “Women Triple Jump.”
- Show sport-specific data and statistics.
- Switch crowd prompts from “First Down” to “Gooooooaaaaal.”
- Maximize your revenue by changing sponsors for each team or event.
Little League to Minor League
In the same way that physical changes to a field can convert any baseball or softball diamond into a playing field for different age groups, Watchfire video displays can be reconfigured for every level of play too. On Saturday night, it can be a professional baseball stadium scoreboard with errors and line scores. On Wednesday, the same video board can be a basic home/away scoreboard for a travel ball tournament.
Beyond the Season Factor
During off-days and after the season is over, your field can be used for non-sport events like clinics, rock concerts, band competitions and Relay for Life walks. That’s a great time to use your video board too. Watchfire scoreboards have complete video capabilities that allow you to produce an event with eye-catching videos and social media feeds using state-of-the-art technology.
