New State-of-the-art Scoreboard Installed at CAU Panther Stadium


ATLANTA, GA -- A new, state-of-the-art video board will be erected at Clark Atlanta University’s Panthers Stadium.  The LED video screen is 27 x 42 feet with a versatile display that can be configured as a scoreboard or as a complete video board. 

Panther football fans will now be able to see highlights, instant replays, promotional videos, advertising and other content on the new video board. Positioned in the far south corner of the stadium, the new video board will able to be seen clearly across the field by drivers traveling up and down Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard.  Besides being a focal point of CAU football games, the video board will also serve as an important advertising venue throughout the week.

"The video board will provide a stirring, heart-throbbing game experience for CAU alums and supporters, will showcase the work and impact of faculty, staff and students, and positions our corporate partners to communicating with new and existing clientele," said CAU Athletic Director J Lin Dawson.

The video board is just one of the more than 30 facility improvements that have taken place across the CAU athletics landscape over the past several months.   At L.S. Epps Gymnasium, CAU has installed a new floor, bleachers, new goals, weight room, team room and locker rooms for all of the Panthers and Lady Panthers sports teams housed there. 

Coming up in the near future will be the resurfacing of the track surrounding the CAU Panther Stadium football field, and upgrades to the adjacent Lady Panthers softball field. New brick and iron fencing around the stadium is also scheduled, as is a new entry way design for the stadium. 
"The video board and the 32 other project in athletics stem from the vision that CAU president Dr. Ronald A. Johnson has set for the University and athletics," Dawson said.  "Our objectives are simple – being the university of choice, the employer of choice and to be the investment of choice."
