WATCH: Gillette Stadium debuts new video scoreboard
The two-year, $250 million Gillette Stadium renovation project is almost complete. Construction is starting to wrap up, with the full renovations expected to be completed in time for the Patriots’ home-opener against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sept. 10.
On Friday, ahead of the Patriots’ annual in-stadium practice, the stadium debuted the centerpiece of the project – the new video board in the north end zone. At 22,000 square feet – over half an acre – the 370-foot-by-60-foot scoreboard from Daktronics is now the largest outdoor stadium high-definition video board in the country.
As the scoreboard has been being built, a portion of it has been used for events such as Revolution games and other events such as concerts. Friday was the first time it was turned on all the way across, in the form of this intro video…
The video highlights the history of the stadium including Patriots games, Revolution games, and other events such as the Monster Truck races. It also included some facts and figures about the board.
While the video board and adjacent lighthouse are the most visible parts of the renovations, there’s much more to the overhaul meant to impact the fan experience. Here’s a look at what other changes are coming to Gillette Stadium this fall…
