O.co Coliseum Scoreboard Construction Underway!

You may have heard about the new scoreboards and ribbon boards that are set to make their debut at the O.co Coliseum this spring. Well, it’s really happening! Construction is underway at the Coliseum, with everything set to be ready for the first homestand.

With individual-game tickets on sale this morning and the scoreboard construction in progress, it’s beginning to feel like baseball season already. To get you ready for the season, we will be using this page to provide updates on the scoreboard project and other happenings around our ballparks, both in Oakland and at our new spring home in Mesa, Ariz.

Here’s a little info about the two main displays, which will mirror each other in the right- and left-field corners:

  • 36 feet high by 145 feet wide each
  • Approximately 5,225 square feet per display
  • Approximately 10,450 square feet total for two main video displays
  • More than 4.2 million LEDs per display
  • 13HD pixel layout – premier outdoor video display solution for brightness to cut through direct sunlight.
Ribbon boards will run along the facing of the upper deck from right field to left field.

And here are some of the ribbon board features:

  • 5 feet high by 415 feet wide each
  • Approximately 1495 square feet per display
  • More than 1.3 million LEDs per display

All displays will be approximately 13,445 square feet with more than 11.2 million total LEDs.

There will be a large amount of video display space, which allows for flexible content options, more statistics, increased possibilities for fan interaction, and a better view from every seat in the ballpark.

Don’t forget to come to A’s FanFest on February 8 to check out the progress in person!
