ANC Sports and Texas Star Supply Dynamic Signage Systems
to Minor League Teams, Colleges and High Schools

Purchase, New York -– ANC Sports Enterprises teamed up with Texas Star Sports to jointly market complete stadium signage services to minor league teams, colleges and high schools.

“ANC’s growth over the past year positioned the company to offer the entire sports market with the same state-of-the-art signage and software we provide professional sports teams,” said Jerry Cifarelli, president and chief executive officer of ANC Sports Enterprises. “Combining our technology with Texas Star’s engineering capabilities creates a premium scoreboard partner for teams in the NCAA and other leagues.”

Teams in the NCAA, American Association of Independent Professional Baseball, Central Hockey League (CHL), and high school sports have selected Texas Star and ANC Sports to supply light emitting diode (LED) scoreboards and advertising matrix for the 2006-07 seasons. ANC Sports supplies the LED displays, operating systems, graphic content and signage operation training, while Texas Star coordinates scoreboard customization, control room construction, and sound and lighting system installation.

The companies will unveil two new dynamic LED displays at University of Nevada, Reno’s Mackay Stadium to help create the highest level of emotion during the defending Western Athletic Conference Co-champion Wolf Pack’s home games. A SMARTVISION® 25mm 14’ x 52’ LED video board will feature game statistics, highlights and crowd prompts while a new 5’ x 21’ sponsor display will provide static and animated advertising.

“Partnering with ANC Sports enables us to offer the most up to date scoreboard technology with our stadium and arena media services,” said Garry Waldrum, president and chief executive officer of Texas Star Sports. “We look forward to providing colleges, minor leagues and even high schools the opportunity to offer the same overall event experience that can be found in the major leagues.”

ANC Sports and Texas Star’s first high school project provided one of the most modern sports complexes in Texas with a high-tech make over for the upcoming season. The endzone at Grande Communications Stadium at the Scharbauer Sports Complex is receiving a 14’ x 26’ SMARTVISION® 25mm LED video board. The vibrant display will energize the 18,000 capacity football and soccer facility, home of the Midland Lee Rebels, Midland Bulldogs and the Greater Midland Football League’s Super Bowl.

In addition, the CHL’s Odessa Jackalopes will debut an 11’x 15’ SMARTVISION® 16.5mm LED video board at Odessa Hockey Arena for the October 27 home opener. The new high-tech screen will provide game animations, fan messages and advertising. ANC Sports and Texas Star also performed installations in the extensive secondary baseball market with the University of Pacific and minor league El Paso Diablos. The University of Pacific opened the 2006 season featuring a 14’x18’ 25mm LED display at Klein Family Field while the El Paso Diablos are playing in front of a 15’x24’ 25mm LED video screen in the outfield at Cohen Stadium.
