New scoreboard coming to Pepsi Center

Avs scoreboard

It’s about to get a lot easier to watch replays in the Pepsi Center.

The Colorado Avalanche announced today that a new scoreboard will be installed for next season.

Here are the specs:

The scoreboard will contain four large screens—two will face the center seating areas, measuring approximately 27’ high by 48’ long, and two will face each end of the seating bowl, measuring approximately 21’ high by 25’ wide. The new display boards will contain over 8.5 million pixels in total. Fans seated along the center areas will face a 1080p full HD screen that spans both blue lines for hockey and stretches from 3-point line to 3-point line for basketball.

A similar scoreboard has been installed in the Tampa Bay Times Forum, the home of the Lightning.

For Avs fans, these are exciting times indeed. Joe Sakic’s in charge of hockey operations now. Patrick Roy’s the new head coach. Nathan MacKinnon could be a future superstar.

Perhaps all of the above can help return the franchise to prominence, both in the league and in Denver.

In 2013, Colorado finished 26th in league attendance, averaging just 15,444 per game as the club went on to miss the playoffs for the fifth time in seven seasons.

    You Avs fans are going to love this thing. The board in Tampa is amazing. The amount of information displayed during the game and the size of the replays really adds to the experience. I was afraid it would be TOO big when I first saw the photos but it turned out great.

    They even use the thing to do “movie nights” for season ticket holders during the offseason. It’s a great time.

    The in game entertainment has been lacking for years. It should be fun to go to the Pepsi center again, on ice product and off.
