Brookings, South Dakota-based Daktronics has extended its long-time partnership with the University of Minnesota by recently installing two new LED displays at the main entrance to the new Athletes Village complex that the school built on its Twin Cities campus.

Both long, narrow ribbon-style displays feature 6-millimeter line spacing for clear imagery, the company says. One display measures 2 ½’ x 51 ½’ and the other 2 ½’ x 55 ½’. They are used to promote upcoming events and other messages to students entering the facility and to passersby.

“The Athletes Village is a project of firsts for our athletics department and the new Daktronics LED displays are certainly firsts for our programs,” says U. of M. athletics director Mark Coyle. “These displays give us the chance to share schedules, updates and news about the accomplishments of our student-athletes in a unique way, something we have never previously had near our everyday facilities. We appreciated Daktronics’ partnership to bring this element of the Athletes Village to life.”
