The longest high-definition straight-run stadium video display screen anywhere in the world will be built at Stadium Australia.
Work on the “Great Southern Screen” will begin after NRL grand final day and will be in place for the start of the 2022 season.
At 120m long and 10m high, the new screen will stretch across the entire end of Stadium Australia and will be the equivalent of the length of the football field.
Not only will be new super-sized screen show replays but will be used to immerse fans not at the game into the action via a virtual experience.
In Australia, the biggest high-definition sports video screen in operation is at Eagle Farm Racecourse (43.89m x 10.97m).
The Stadium Australia screen will be roughly three times bigger than the next largest video screen in the country.
It will be the longest high-definition straight-run stadium video display anywhere in the world.
Daktronics Australia will construct the screen, which is expected to deliver a “live game-day experience that has never been experienced in Australia”.
