Daktronics and Minnesota United FC will partner for the LED video displays at Allianz Field, the club’s upcoming soccer-specific stadium in St. Paul. 

This summer, one main display and ten ribbon displays will be installed at the new stadium to elevate the overall experience at soccer matches and other special events.

“One of Minnesota United’s biggest goals is providing the best possible match day experience for our fans,” said MNUFC CEO Chris Wright. “This partnership with Daktronics guarantees that the displays at Allianz Field will be absolutely top-of-the-line elements that will raise that experience to a new, incredible level for fans everywhere in the stadium.”

At one end of the stadium, a main LED video display featuring a 15HD pixel layout will measure 23 feet high by 115 feet wide to bring excellent image clarity and contrast to fans in every seat. It will feature variable content zoning allowing it to show one large image or to be divided into multiple windows to show any combination of live video, instant replay, match statistics, graphics and animations, and sponsorship messages.

“This is a great project to be a part of as professional soccer continues to build roots in Minnesota,” said Daktronics Regional Sales Manager Tony Mulder. “We’re happy to partner with Minnesota United FC for this installation and look forward to the amazing game-day experience this technology will provide. It will be exciting to see the completed project in action when the stadium opens in 2019.”

Along the seating fascia, Daktronics will install a ribbon display featuring a 15HD pixel layout using patented ProRail technology. This technology allows for better sightlines as the mounting of the LED product is connected closer to the seating fascia coordinated with the stadium architecture. Another ribbon display will be installed on the opposite seating fascia. Each of these ribbon displays will measure 2.5 feet high by 380 feet wide.

Additionally, eight ribbon displays will be installed throughout the stadium: two along the Supporters Section fascia, two at the South Gate and four at the North Gate. These displays will feature 16-millimeter line spacing and allow for additional statistics, animations and sponsorship messages to be highlighted throughout events.

Daktronics will also be including its powerful Show Control System with this installation. This industry-leading system provides a combination of display control software, world-class video processing, data integration and playback hardware that forms a user-friendly production solution.

Allianz Field is currently under construction in St. Paul’s Midway neighborhood. It is expected to open for the 2019 MLS season.
