Gopher nation will see an improved view of their basketball and hockey teams this season. The University of Minnesota announced today that new center-hung LED scoreboards and fascia boards and sound systems will be installed in both facilities prior to the start of the upcoming seasons.
"It was time to make the upgrades at Mariucci and Williams Arenas," said Associate Athletic Director for Facilities Scott Ellson. "Golden Gopher fans are not only passionate about the athletic programs but also the facilities."
The new scoreboards will feature different size video screens and will feature an LED ring above and below the main video board.
Removal of the existing scoreboard at Williams Arena has been completed, while removal at Mariucci will begin in the near future.
