DELAWARE, OH – Selby Stadium, which seats 9,100 and is the fourth-largest college-owned field in NCAA Division III, has been crowned with a new football, lacrosse, and track LED scoreboard and video display. The new Model 7530 scoreboard features a full-color, 8.75ft x 15.73ft LED Video Display that boasts more than 30,000 pixels. The video display shows live game footage, instant replay, paid advertisements, in-game animations or video clips, player profiles, or other announcements and messages for the fans.
The first event for the new system was the Division III National Track and Field Championships, marking the first time that the NCAA ever used a video display at the Division III Track and Field Championships. The board integrates with Finish Lynx software to show detail race results as well as photo finishes.
The new equipment is possible thanks to generous support from an anonymous OWU graduate and from Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield. From a simple incandescent (light bulb) board to a new LED Scoreboard with Electronic Team Names (ETN) and 20mm Video Display that can handle all sports content at a given institution. The new and improved system has been instrumental in attracting outside groups and teams to compete at Selby Stadium.
“The scoreboard has enhanced our marketing capabilities and greatly increased the quality of experience for our fans, school community, and team members,” said Director of Athletics Roger Ingles. “I would recommend Nevco to anyone wanting to work with a customer-friendly company who provides a great product and at competitive pricing. We could not be happier at Ohio Wesleyan with the Nevco product.”
