Snapdragon Stadium is to incorporate 19 new LED displays totalling 8,400 square feet installed by Daktronics.

The new 35,000-capacity home of the San Diego State Aztecs football team features a main video display in the northwest corner of the stadium measuring 42 feet high by 73 feet wide.

Mirroring the main display in the opposite corner of the stadium, a video display will measure approximately 26.5 feet high by 50.5 feet wide to deliver similar and supplemental information as the main display.

Both displays feature industry-leading environmental protection to ensure they operate as expected in the San Diego outdoors.

“We are excited to partner with Daktronics, the premier scoreboard and digital board organisation in the world,” said John David Wicker, San Diego State University’s (SDSU) director of athletics.

“We’ve always said that game-day experience is the most important piece to Snapdragon Stadium and the Daktronics video scoreboards provide fantastic displays to a stadium with great sight lines. The viewing experience at Snapdragon Stadium is now unmatched in collegiate athletics.”

In addition, the end zone video displays are each capable of variable content zoning allowing each to show one large image or to be divided into multiple zones to show any combination of live video, instant replays, up-to-the-minute statistics, graphics and animations, and sponsorship messages.

All 19 displays feature 10-millimeter pixel spacing to deliver clear imagery to fans throughout the stadium.

The stadium also features two large ribbon displays mounted to the seating fascia. One measures approximately 2.5 feet high by 420 feet in length and the other measures 2.5 feet high by 400 feet long. Nine additional ribbons measure 2.5 feet high and combine for 290 linear feet while five more ribbon style displays measure 6 feet high and combine for 167 linear feet.

“We’re thrilled to be a part of this Snapdragon Stadium project and to help San Diego State deliver a local experience to their events,” said Robin Hall, Daktronics regional manager.

“The displays will help to create an amazing home field advantage for the Aztecs for years to come. We are grateful to continue working with the school on their campus-wide initiative to enhance the in-person experience at all of their athletics venues as they move into the future.”
