Sporting Kansas City fans are experiencing upgraded videodisplay tech at Children’s Mercy Park, as the MLS team is partnering with Daktronics on high-resolution 10 mm LED technology to upgrade the north videoboard.
Sporting Kansas City first partnered with Daktronics in 2019 to introduce new LED field boards and a dynamic digital display in the southeast corner of the stadium. Prior to the 2022 season, Sporting Kansas City invested in Daktronics technology–including new scoring and timing elements–to upgrade the videoboard above the Supporters’ Stand on the north end of the stadium. In addition to a superior image quality with improved clarity and contrast across a range of viewing conditions, the new videoboard allows for a more immersive fan experience and provides increased flexibility for showcasing the club’s match presentation elements.
“We are so excited to bring Daktronics’ state-of-the-art videoboard technology into Children’s Mercy Park,” said Sporting Kansas City Director of Video and Stadium Production Stewart Pirani via press release. “Our new videoboard on the north end of the venue has been designed to enhance the fan experience through groundbreaking HD technology to continue to make Children’s Mercy Park one of the best soccer-specific stadiums in the country.”
“We’re thrilled to extend our partnership with Sporting KC to deliver their new video board at the stadium,” said Tony Mulder, Daktronics regional manager, via press release. “The display brings a new dynamic to matches and events held at Children’s Mercy Park and will elevate the experience for everyone for years to come.”
