Texas A&M University-Commerce has partnered with Daktronics to design, manufacture, and install a new video board and sound system at Memorial Stadium/Hawkins Field. The project is set to be completed this spring and will be fully operational for the 2020 football season.
Funding for the project came from a combination of athletics corporate partner revenues, private donations, other athletics surplus revenues, and athletics concession and other revenues from Sodexo, official dining and catering partner for Texas A&M University-Commerce.
“This is a critical next step in a series of necessary capital upgrades for our athletics program,” said Tim McMurray, Texas A&M University-Commerce director of athletics. This upgrade will allow us to dramatically improve our game-day experience for our fans during games and will be a big part of improving our football game presentation to highlight and further connect our student-athletes with our fan base. Our new structure will also be used year-round relative to recruiting, showcasing our Lion Sports Properties partners and enhanced community engagement.
