Sports facilities equipped with Daktronics LED displays prepare for college football bowl games and playoffs

BROOKINGS, S.D. – From December 20 through January 3, college football fans across the nation will be entertained at a combined total of 39 bowl and playoff games across 23 venues, all of which feature products manufactured by Daktronics (NASDAQ-DAKT) of Brookings, South Dakota.

Of those games, 15 will receive on-site event support services from Daktronics with service specialists on hand to ensure all equipment is running smoothly throughout the event. Daktronics customer trainers will be on site for the Belk Bowl, Gator Bowl and San Francisco Bowl. This on-site support includes pre-event systems checks in the days leading up to the events as well as ensuring accurate display system operation during the events.

“Just as these college football teams prepare for these games, so does Daktronics service and support,” said Vice President of Services Sarah Rose. “Daktronics thrives in live event environments and is proud to be on hand to ensure every one of these college football events runs smoothly and maximizes the use of Daktronics products. The on-site support we provide gives our customers peace of mind during their high-profile productions.”

Two of the 39 games at Daktronics equipped facilities will be the first ever college football playoff games taking place at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California, and at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana. The winners of those two contests will meet in the championship game on January 12 in Arlington, Texas.

“It’s an honor to have such a large quantity of venues throughout the country trust Daktronics technology for their prime football events,” said Vice President of Live Events Jay Parker. “We’re committed to providing the best products for our customers so that they can entertain their fans and run top-notch productions. The final games of this season will be exciting to watch.”
