Auburn University’s Board of Trustees has OK’d the construction of a new state- of- the- art videoboard at the north end zone of Jordan-Hare Stadium.
Massive Auburn Videoboard -The Numbers
Replacing the more traditional 1987 scoreboard, the new videoboard will stand 47 feet high and stretch 154 feet wide.
For perspective, place Auburn’s most iconic Samford Hall Clock Tower, which is also 154 feet tall (without the weathervane), on its side — that’s the width of the videoboard.
Once installed the new 7,238 square feet videoboard will rank as the sixth largest in the nation and top 20 in the nation.
Presently, the south end videoboard is the largest in college football at 10,690 square feet.
“We are appreciative of the Auburn Board of Trustees for its continued support of Auburn Athletics and the Auburn Family. This videoboard project will not only take a big step in our efforts to provide a better aesthetic balance between Jordan-Hare Stadium’s north and south end zones and an improved sound experience, but more importantly will continue to modernize the fan experience for our fan base. It will also give our south end zone patrons, including our student section, an opportunity to have an unimpeded and straight-ahead view of a state-of-the-art videoboard.”~ Auburn Director of Athletics John Cohen, in a news release
Ready for 2025 Auburn football season
Now, the most important question — when does construction start?
According to the University, The north end zone videoboard project is expected to break ground in the summer of 2024 to be completed in time for the 2025 Auburn football season.
No news on whether the scoreboard will be operational during the 2024 football season.
