Good news! The Lexington Center Corp. board approved upgrades to Rupp Arena in a meeting this morning, including a brand new center-hung scoreboard. It’s a two-year upgrade plan at an estimated $15 million, according to the Herald-Leader.
The plan also includes Wi-Fi, additional video screens and ribbon boards around the second tier of the arena. The new screens will provide more advertising opportunities to increase revenue that will eventually cover the installation costs.
RIP Big Bertha.
