Memphis just secured a $2.5 million dollar donation from FedEx for a 100 foot wide x 50 foot high video board that will replace their current JumboTron.
Along with the main video board, the donation will also cover the installation of a smaller video board on the north end. Athletic director R.C Johnson compared the size of the new board with the one at Mississippi State (pictured below). So it should be a monster.
"It's going to be somewhat comparable to the size of Mississippi State's. Right now it would be about the fifth-biggest in the country.''
The new video board should be up and running by the season opener.
