New scoreboard to be installed at York High School stadium

By Chris Fox

At the Elmhurst School District 205 Board meeting onTuesday, March 12, Board members voted unanimously to approve the installation of a new scoreboard at the stadium at York High School. Purchasing and installing the new Daktronics full color video display scoreboard will cost nearly $260,000.

The new scoreboard will include an LED video display that’s about 13 feet high and 25 feet wide. It will replace the current scoreboard at York’s stadium, which is more than 20 years old.

The cost of almost $260,000 includes the purchase, shipping and installation of the new scoreboard, as well as removing the old scoreboard and existing steel beams. The cost also includes the installation of new steel beams and connecting the new scoreboard to the electrical panel and to the stadium’s press box.

Other area schools with new scoreboards have been able to sell advertising on those scoreboards. District 205 plans to sell advertising on its new scoreboard.
