Grand Rapids changes game day atmosphere with a new Nevco video display

Edwardsville, IL – Grand Rapids High School in Minnesota has chosen Nevco to provide an exciting game day experience for the Thunderhawk community. Grand Rapids is upgrading to a new Nevco Full Color LED 12’H by 19’W video display for their football field.

The new Nevco video display is fully funded by Grand Rapids community fundraising and sponsorships with only a few sponsorship spots remaining.

The scoreboard was selected by a group of stakeholders consisting of coaches, principals, the Activities Director, and other school staff. “We did a lot of research with schools using the Nevco scoreboard and received glowing reviews about both the product and the customer service,” said Grand Rapids Activities Director Anne Campbell. “It is so great to be able to add this benefit for our students and student-athletes,” said Campbell.

Not only will the Grand Rapids athletic teams put the new scoreboard to use but so will other school activities as well.

“Students from 13 school-sponsored sports and activities will benefit from the scoreboard, not to mention our gym classes, special events like graduation and potentially even community-sponsored gatherings.” said Campbell.

Sitting on top of the video board is a 28’W custom Thunderhawks scrim with the Nevco Stadium Pro 1000 Sound System™ discretely behind. Alongside the video display is custom revenue generating signs for sponsors. Below the video board is a Nevco model 3685 scoreboard with orange striping and white intelligent captions.

With the new fan engagement experience and revenue generating opportunities, Grand Rapids will have an exciting new atmosphere for Thunderhawks fans.

The project is set to install to early May 2021.
