GREENVILLE, IL, July 19, 2018– Lions Football fans at Missouri Southern State University (MSSU), in Joplin, Missouri will notice a huge visual enhancement at Fred G. Hughes Stadium this fall with the company of a brand new Nevco video display for the 2018 season.

Standing in the south endzone at Fred G. Hughes Stadium will be a massive Full Color, 16mm LED Video Display, spanning over 30’H and 66’W. The attention-grabbing board displays over 718,199 mesmerizing pixels, while providing excellent image clarity and contrast at every viewing angle in the stadium. Every Lions fan will be able to enjoy an unlimited variety of live game-day action, sponsorship messages, interactive fan-prompts, and virtual scoring data displayed on the video board, operated through the use of the MotionRocket Sports Video Control System software. To make the video board show off its bright, brilliant spectrum of colors, MSSU will work with Nevco’s HYPE Creative Services to develop custom-branded graphics and fan prompts.

“We are ecstatic to bring the most updated scoring technology in the industry to our stadium and fans this fall,” says Jared Bruggeman, MSSU’s Director of Athletics. “The long-term partnership we’ve had with Nevco has been such a rewarding experience. We look forward to continuing this business relationship in the future.”

Sitting on top of the video display is a custom 58’W LED Football Scoreboard, equipped with amber Intelligent Captions™ and Electronic Team Names. Alongside the display are (8) revenue-generating, rear-lit sponsorship signs for title sponsors in the region.  While a captivating game-day experience is largely visual, clear audio is a huge component necessary to understanding the calls of the game and important announcements.  MSSU added Nevco’s Stadium Pro™ 2000 Sound System which provides concert-quality sound, audible from every seat in the stadium.  For optimal audio throughout the stadium, the speaker box is located within in the structure, hidden discreetly above the scoreboard proudly displaying Missouri Southern State University across the sound scrim.

Completing the display is a custom Arch Sign showcasing a rear-lit mascot, flanked by custom 3D letters displaying MSSU LIONS, and a rear-lit sign mounted below the display prominently showing stadium name.

“MSSU’s new display will bring a whole new wow-factor to their game-day experience this upcoming season, “says Nevco Director of Sports Video Sales, Eric Light. “Facility enhancements like these have ripple effects throughout the entire university and community – bringing a new level of excitement, recruiting power, and sponsorship-generation.”

The Lions’ new display is scheduled to install this summer. Check out the winning rendering below and be sure to check out to see the live install photos!
