On Friday, the Auburn University Board of Trustees approved the addition of a new state-of-the-art video board in the north end zone of Jordan-Hare Stadium.
The new board will replace the current north end zone scoreboard, originally installed in 1987.
The project is expected to begin in the summer of 2024 and be completed in time for the 2025 Auburn football season.
"We are appreciative of the Auburn Board of Trustees for its continued support of Auburn Athletics and the Auburn Family," Auburn director of athletics John Cohen said in a statement. "This videoboard project will not only take a big step in our efforts to provide a better aesthetic balance between Jordan-Hare Stadium's north and south end zones and an improved sound experience, but more importantly will continue to modernize the fan experience for our fan base. It will also give our south end zone patrons, including our student section, an opportunity to have an unimpeded and straight-ahead view of a state-of-the-art videoboard."
The new video board will be 47 feet high by 154 feet wide, totaling 7,238 square feet of LED space, according to a press release from Auburn.
The south end zone video board is the largest collegiate video board in the country at 10,690 square feet, and the new north video board will make it the sixth-largest video board in the Southeastern Conference and a top-20 collegiate video board in the country.
