Fact Sheet

06/10/10

The Bradley Center Sports & Entertainment Corporation has selected Texas-based TS Sports to produce a state-of-the-art, custom-designed video scoreboard and entertainment system to be installed at the Bradley Center for the 2010-11 season. The $3.2 million, center-hung scoreboard - with three times the display space of the Center's current scoreboard - will feature 12 high-resolution video panels. The panels will allow for brighter colors, sharper images, more exciting special effects and expanded game stats and sponsor messages to dramatically enhance the fan experience.

The new scoreboard will replace the Sony JumboTron that has hung at the Bradley Center since 1995. The 15-year-old JumboTron is one of the oldest scoreboards still in operation at an NBA facility.
