New Scoreboard & Sound System for Mariucci

New Scoreboard & Sound System for Mariucci

A brand new scoreboard and sound system will be added to both Mariucci and Williams Arena's this summer. On Thursday (5/10), the UofM Board of Regents approved a $8 million dollar loan to pay for the improvements to both arena's.

Mariucci's new HD video screen will be roughly 11.6 feet tall and 14.9 feet wide. The old video board at Mariucci was 6 X 8 in size... In addition to the new scoreboards and sound, Mariucci and Williams will also get ribbon boards to go around the arena. For Mariucci the new ribbon board will be in front of the suites, club room and press box. It should be a spectacular addition... The last thing approved is production studio that will be built at TCF Bank Stadium to produce the video board content for Mariucci, Williams, and TCF Bank Stadium.

For the fans, I think the new sound system will be greatly appreciated. For years people have complained about how bad the sound has been at Mariucci. Hopefully now you'll be able to hear what rink announcer Jamie Verbrugge actually says in his little responses after announcing "1 minute remaining in the period".

Below is a concept of what the scoreboard at Mariucci will look like. Obviously this is not final, but it at least gives you a good idea of what it will look like.... Welcome to the 21st century Mariucci!!! Is it October yet?!?!

Gophers Drive for Six Ends in 7-4 Loss to Union


Minnesota national runner-up for seventh time

Philadelphia, Penn. – Minnesota is a program that goes into each season looking to raise banners. This year’s team was able to win the inaugural Big Ten regular season title, but came up short in the conference tourney and then again falling 7-4 to Union in the NCAA title game.

The Gopher coaching staff often preaches that their philosophy starts from defending their own goal and extends from there. Saturday night, the team was caught watching, waiting, wishing for their goalie to freeze the puck, but the Dutchmen kept ge...
