The Utah Jazz may not have made the playoffs this season, but they are making breaking news anyway. Monday afternoon, Miller Sports Properties, the owner of EnergySolutions Arena in Utah, made an announcement that they will be renovating the scoreboard systems. This $15 Million upgrade will greatly affect the atmosphere inside the arena. The upgrade includes four Hi-Def screens in the center of the court, so that it can be seen from all angles. There will also be separate monitors to provide spectators with statistics and highlights. To go along with the brand new screens, EnergySolutions Arena will also receive a better sound system and more lights to go around the inside.
In comparison, these new renovations will be huge for the Jazz. There haven’t been new screens in the arena since its construction in 1991. The original ones have been the only ones. So this upgrade is well needed. With the ever growing changes with sports technology, it’s important to see what’s going on from all directions. It makes the referee’s job a little bit easier. It also attracts a larger fan base, and will bring about more revenue.
The new improvements are designed to be completed by October 2013, just before the NBA season gets underway.
