Whether you’re replacing a scoreboard or shopping for a new one, there are many factors to consider. Spectrum by Watchfire wants to make decision-making easier by offering a scoreboard catalog download, plus these helpful tips.

CHOOSE YOUR SPORT: Spectrum by Watchfire offers scoreboards for football, basketball, baseball, softball, track and field, hockey, soccer, lacrosse, and multipurpose use.

DECIDE LEVEL OF PLAY: Fixed digit scoreboards are ideal for high school, college, professional, and municipality facilities, but different levels of play can require different information to be displayed. 

MEASURE YOUR SPACE: Understanding what kind of space you have to work with quickly narrows down the long list of scoreboard sizes.

KNOW YOUR BUDGET: Fixed digit scoreboards are ideal for teams who want to stretch their budgets. Extra funding or plans for sponsor ads allow you to add more choices, like custom designs or electronic names.
