SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Fans attending Hornet Stadium will now have one of the largest video displays in the Sacramento area to add to their experience. The project was recently completed and will officially debut as Sacramento State hosts the USATF National Junior Olympic Track & Field Championships July 25-31.

The board will make its Hornet football debut on Saturday, Sept. 3, when the team hosts Western Oregon at 6 p.m. in the season opener.

The video board, which was designed by D3 in Rancho Cordova, is 37 feet wide and 21 feet tall. It has 10mm density, which results in near HD quality and is denser than displays at Raley Field and Bonney Field. In comparison, the new video board is over three times the size of the previous display at Hornet Stadium.

Along with the video display, a new Daktronics scoreboard and play clocks were also installed. The all digital display on the scoreboard creates the ability to change team names for neutral site games such as the State High School Football Championships and Sac-Joaquin Section Playoffs.

"We are thankful to everyone on campus and in the community who helped bring this project to completion," Sacramento State Director of Athletics Bill Macriss said. "Working with nationally renowned companies such as D3 and Daktronics assures us that we have a high-quality product that is state of the art.

"A video board of this size and clarity gives us one of the best displays in Sacramento and combined with the scoreboard will continue to increase the game experience for fans at Hornet Stadium."

Along with serving as the home of Hornet football and track & field, Hornet Stadium has hosted several US Track & Field and NCAA Track & Field Championships. The venue was recently selected to host the 2017 US Track & Field Championships which will lead into the World Championships.
