PROVO, Utah — BYU director of athletics Tom Holmoe has announced new video boards, LED ribbon boards and a new sound system will be installed in Lavell Edwards Stadium for the 2021 season. The project is funded completely by Nu Skin, a longtime partner and corporate sponsor of BYU Athletics.

“Together, we have established a great atmosphere at LaVell Edwards Stadium,” Holmoe said, “and these upgrades will greatly enhance the game day experience. Thank you, Nu Skin, for making this possible.”

Both video boards at the north and south ends of the stadium with be replaced. The current dimensions are 34 by 50 feet, the new dimensions of the south board will be 48 by 131 feet and the north board will be 36 by 72 feet. New LED ribbon boards will also be installed on the north and south ends of the stadium to match the current ribbon board on the east side of the stadium. The north and south ribbon boards are currently four feet tall and will be replaced with 8 feet ribbon boards. A new single point sound system will replace the old sound system in the north end zone, which will significantly enhance the audio experience for those in attendance.

Nu Skin is funding 100 percent of the upgrades. No BYU Athletics or university funds are being used for this project.

“One of the many things the past year has taught us is the importance of community,” said Nu Skin CEO Ritch Wood. “We are proud to be part of this community and to have our headquarters right in the heart of Provo and right at the heart of BYU. We look forward to connecting with BYU fans and students during the upcoming season and are excited to be able to enhance the experience through the video boards and sound system at LaVell Edwards Stadium.”

Construction will begin on the installation of the new video boards this month. They will be completed for the 2021 BYU football season.
