We are pleased to confirm that a brand new scoreboard has landed in the city to be installed in the north east corner of the Eco-Power Stadium in the coming weeks.
Sourced by Platinum partners and East Stand sponsors SMTXtra - who have supported the club for more than a decade - the new digital scoreboard will replace the existing model, which has been in place since the stadium was constructed.
A structure to house the new scoreboard is currently in production and it is hoped that installation will take place before the end of the season.
The new scoreboard features the ability to showcase video and graphics as well as the usual time and scorekeeping functions.
Club Doncaster chief operating officer Shaun Lockwood said: “It’s taken a while for the scoreboard to be delivered from the other side of the world but it is finally in Doncaster after a bit of a hold-up in customs at the airport. We are excited to see it in action and are looking forward to showing it off to supporters as soon as possible.
“There is still some work to be done with installation because we need a special fabrication to house the board as well as getting it signed off by the Safety Advisory Group.
“We thank longtime supporters of the club SMTXtra for sourcing the board for us. It has been great to work with one of our partners, and especially a Doncaster one at that, on such an important project.”
