Jumbotron Completed At Red Wolves' CHI Memorial Stadium

Friday, June 11, 2021

Chattanooga Red Wolves officials announced on Friday the completion of CHI Memorial Stadium's brand new Jumbotron. The Jumbotron boasts over 2,000 square feet in size or approximately 34’ by 61’ making it the largest in the city of Chattanooga and one of the largest digital scoreboards in the state of Tennessee.

The Jumbotron houses 732,672 LEDs, 4k video resolution and 3 in 1 Surface-Mount Diodes providing wide viewing angles creating an immersive in-game fan experience and a top tier viewing experience from every seat in the stadium.

For the Chattanooga Red Wolves, the Jumbotron will become an integral part of the fan experience on game days, bringing a multi-camera live game feed, 4K capabilities and other state of the art features to the fans. “Enhancing the customer experience with a state of the art LED video board is exactly what was intended when they broke ground on CHI Memorial Stadium just a short while ago,” says Chattanooga Red Wolves SC President, Sean
McDaniel. “CHI Memorial Stadium continues going into the highest levels of the sports entertainment environment by showcasing professional soccer to the country and the addition of this jumbotron asset fits our master plan perfectly.”

The Jumbotron was locally sourced and installed by Chattanooga-based Plainview LED.

“We are so excited to partner with and become a family member of a passionate organization. The Red Wolves have made a commitment to their players, their fans and more importantly the Chattanooga community. To be a local business and part of this amazing vision is truly humbling.” said Derek Markey, PlainView LED’s COO. “Adding the FIRST professional soccer stadium in Tennessee to our portfolio is amazing. The vision the ownership group has for the entire development is mind blowing! We are so excited for the Red Wolves fans to see 1.5 million pixels come to life next weekend. The Red Wolves will bring the action and PlainView LED will bring the 1.5 million inspiring awe lights!”

The Jumbotron will be ready for use at the next Chattanooga Red Wolves home game on June 20th at 7pm against North Carolina FC.
