When soccer fans head to USL Spokane matches at ONE Spokane Stadium in Washington this spring, they will be greeted by LED video displays from Daktronics (NASDAQ-DAKT) of Brookings, South Dakota. The installation of a main video display and pitch-level displays is currently underway and will be ready to inform and entertain Spokane Zephyr FC and Spokane Velocity fans at every match.

The field-level LED is a particularly exciting addition to ONE Spokane Stadium, said Mac Graff, USL Spokane’s manager of partnership fulfillment.

“It stretches across 80 percent of the east sideline,” Graff said. “USL Spokane will be one of few with this quality of field-level LED at their home pitch. Add that to the top-notch Daktronics video board that sits atop the stadium and we’re going to be able to do so much with fan engagement and experience, game-day displays, and local partner development. It’s going to be great!”

The video display will measure 20.5 feet high-by-36 feet wide and will feature 10-millimeter pixel spacing to deliver high-quality images, videos, statistics, graphics, and sponsor messaging to fans throughout ONE Spokane Stadium.

The pitch-perimeter display will measure approximately 2.5 feet high-by-246 feet long and feature 10-millimeter pixel spacing. This will allow for supplemental information to the main display while also allowing the opportunity to highlight sponsors throughout events with their branding directly next to the live action.

“This project helps highlight Daktronics’ ability to bring a stadium to life with LED technology while also ensuring ONE Spokane Stadium is a complete entertainment destination for their tenants and fans,” said Daktronics Regional Manager Brady Jacobsen. “We’re thrilled to be a part of this project and look forward to this stadium bringing joy and entertainment to soccer fans in the Northwest for years to come.”

The men’s team, the Spokane Velocity FC, will play as a Division III team in USL League One with a home opener on March 16, 2024 at the new ONE Spokane Stadium. The Spokane Zephyr FC, a women’s professional team, will play in the USL Super League that is expected to be sanctioned as a Division I league, starting in August 2024. USL Spokane is owned by Aequus Sports LLC; its principals are Katie Harnetiaux, the club president, and Ryan Harnetiaux, both of whom are originally from Spokane.

Daktronics has grown with the sports industry from the company’s beginnings in 1968. Today the company has integrated LED super systems in more than 50 percent of all professional sports facilities in the United States and Canada.
