Does a massive, state-of-the-art videoboard exist if no patrons are there to see it? We may get that answer this NFL season as the LA Rams open SoFi Stadium.

On Wednesday, the team proudly announced that their one-of-a-kind, new videoboard has been installed and is ready for operation whenever the 2020 NFL season starts. As they have often done during the construction of Sofi Stadium, the Rams documented the videoboard’s evolution on Twitter:

What a beauty!

A screen with 70,000 square feet of digital LED is unreal. I remember seeing the scoreboard at AT&T Stadium in Dallas in 2009. I couldn’t keep my eyes off the video screen during the game.

That was over a decade ago and technology advancement since then has been incredible — I can’t wait to see this SOFI feature. But as ESPN’s Lindsey Thiry points out, when will that happen? The chances of fans being able to attend games this season, because of the coronavirus pandemic, is iffy at best.

If fans can’t enjoy the new videoboard in 2020, at least, players will. Rams’ receiver Cooper Kupp is already impressed and a bit jealous.
