Packers plan to improve video boards at Lambeau Field
It’s not going to rival the video boards at Jerry World, but it would be a nice upgrade for the Green Bay Packers.
The team presented a plan on Tuesday to the Green Bay/Brown County Professional Football Stadium District to upgrade the two video boards and the sound system at Lambeau Field. In a report in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, team president Mark Murphy said it was an opportunity to “improve the fan experience.”
The existing equipment was installed when Lambeau Field was remodeled in 2003, but it’s out of date, especially in comparison to what is found in many NFL stadiums. The new video boards would be HD quality, and would be placed in the North and South end zones. Per the report, upgrades are expected to cost between $13 million and $14 million.
The plan is for the improvements to be completed before the start of the preseason in 2011. The board is expected to consider approval of the plan at its Dec. 15 budget meeting.
