The Superior Dome has a state of the art new addition. A new video board has been installed at the home of the Northern Michigan University Football Team. With a cost of $280,000 the video board was funded entirely by sponsors. The NMU Athletic Director says the upgrade was much needed.
"The technology was a couple generations removed and outdated so we couldn't get new parts for that so it was definitely needed." said Forrest Carr, Athletic Director at NMU. "With the newer technology there is also additional capabilities and additional things that we can do which happen to be great not only for recruiting for the coaches, but for the fans as well."
The board will be fully functional by the time the football team begins their season next fall.
