Commonwealth Stadium is going to look and feel different this year as UK moves into the 21st Century (only slightly late) with 6 million dollars worth of video upgrades. A KSR spy sends us these pictures (feel free to take your own and email them our way…we are a collective unit here) of one step in that upgrade. UK is installing ribbon video boards around the stadium in order to give fans something to follow stats and scores during the game. The video boards will be a huge addition to the overall ambience of the place and represent (along with the massive new video boards in the end zone) one of the most dramatic upgrades in the stadium’s history. Here is what the area looked like before the additions:
And now the video boards will replace that area with screens:
Now the obvious question is what will happen to the “Ring of Honor” names of the former UK football greats. These Hall of Famers will be recognized elsewhere in the stadium at an as of yet, unreleased location. This is a big step in upgrading Commonwealth Stadium and making it more modern and will be another step in making the atmosphere on Gameday more exciting.
