Work underway on large new south end zone screen at Boise State stadium

Work is underway to bring a new 6,000-square-foot video board to the south end zone of the stadium on the campus of Boise State University.

Crews started work in December to build a large scaffolding in the south end zone to accommodate the state’s largest TV screen. Crews brought in a crane to build out the support structure for the future screen.

Boise State initially said it “anticipated” the screen would be up and rolling during the 2022 season, but work did not start until after the season. It does sound like the screen the size of three houses will be ready for football fans before the next football season.

“I’m told the support structure will be wrapped up in the next two weeks, and the rest of the install is roughly a six-week process,” Boise State spokesperson Mike Sharp said. “Looking at mid-to-late March before we get to turn it on and start calibrating and testing.”

The timeline would make it ready in time for a May 20th concert featuring Luke Combs at the stadium. The existing video board in the north end zone will remain, and was recently upgraded.

The screen, which will measure 120 feet wide by 50 feet tall, will be the largest in the Mountain West Conference. It is expected to cost $4.5 million and is funded by a private donation.
