SPOKANE, Wash. -- Gonzaga Athletics completed the installation of a new videoboard and scoreboard at Luger Field, home of the GU men's and women's soccer programs, on Thursday.
The new Daktronics boards, funded entirely through the benefaction of Gonzaga Athletics donors, will take the game atmosphere to a new level with intro videos, instant replay, animations and graphics.
"We're very appreciative to the benefactors who provided this fantastic addition to our field," women's head coach Chris Watkins said. "With their generosity, we will be able to add to an already great fan experience."
Daktronics began installation on Aug. 4 of a 24-foot by 12-foot video screen surrounded by a new scoreboard that keeps score, time and statistical information. The structure replaces the existing scoreboard in the northwest corner of the field.
"We are very grateful to our generous benefactors that made this possible and look forward to an exciting season at Luger Field," men's head coach Einar Thorarinsson said. "The new video board is a tremendous addition for our fans and student-athletes, and will add another element to our gameday experience."
The Gonzaga women's soccer team begins play with an exhibition against Mount Royal on Friday, Aug. 11 at 7 p.m., while the men will first be on the field on Aug. 18 at 4:30 p.m. in an exhibition against Western Washington.
