Massive Array of Cutting-Edge Display Technologies Heighten the Fan Experience at Providence Park
In the Pacific Northwest, professional soccer has a passionate following marked by avid fans and diehard, authentic support for local teams. The excitement for soccer is especially rampant in Portland, home to the Portland Timbers of Major League Soccer and the Portland Thorns FC of the National Women’s Soccer League.
These teams play their home matches at Providence Park, a historic sports venue that was built in 1926 in the downtown area of the city. In May 2019, following an extensive expansion and remodel, the Portland Timbers and Thorns FC unveiled the results of an $85 million stadium transformation.
The renovation includes a new three-tiered seating structure with over 4,000 new seats and a modern edge-to-edge roof on the eastern portion of the stadium. Additionally, both team locker rooms were renovated, new concession stands built, the turf field upgraded, and a new team store added. Highlighting Providence Park’s transformation is a versatile array of high-tech LED video screens and LCD displays that are integrated throughout the stadium in a variety of ways to engage fans and drive excitement.
