Fun facts

  • The new video scoreboard will replace the existing structure on the north end of Scott Stadium that was installed in 2009. The new video scoreboard and accompanying sound system will significantly enhance the game day experience for Cavalier fans. With a display area of over 6,500 square feet, the video scoreboard will be more than twice the size of the current unit at Scott Stadium (approximately 2,500 square feet).
  • With the addition of the Scott Stadium south bowl's upper deck and expansion of the northeast and northwest sides of the stadium, the seating capacity for 2,000 soared to 61,500. That figure includes seating for approximately 5,000 on the north end hillside.
  • The stadium attendance record was set on Aug. 30, 2008, when 64,947 fans watched the Cavaliers play Southern California.
