Toyota Center Set To Install Largest Center-Hung Arena Scoreboard In U.S.
Published September 5, 2012
IMPACT AT THE GATE? Rockets Media Relations Dir Nelson Luis noted that the scoreboard at Cowboys Stadium "is much larger, but we do view that as an outdoor board since it has a roof. Our designation was for arenas in the U.S." YAHOO SPORTS' Dan Devine writes, "Regardless of whether you think the domed enclosure in Arlington constitutes an indoor space, the new big screen at the Toyota Center will represent a huge upgrade over the existing scoreboard." As the principal tenants of the building, the Rockets "stand to benefit most, attendance-wise, from artful deployment of the new upgrades' functionality." For a franchise that has "long finished near or in the bottom third of the league in overall annual attendance, including a 24th-of-30 mark last season, providing a more enticing in-game presentation matters" (SPORTS.YAHOO.com, 9/4).
