Welland Jackfish announce new video board at Welland Stadium

Welland, ON – The Welland Jackfish Baseball Club is proud to announce an installation of a new video board in left-center field to replace the existing scoreboard.

Measuring 16.95' high by 28.35' wide, the new Nevco video board will be the largest in the Intercounty Baseball League. The Scoreboard Man will install the new video board.

“This is a great partnership that brings a state-of-the-art upgrade to a City facility,” said Welland Mayor Frank Campion. “As we approach next year’s summer games and many seasons of Jackfish baseball, we’re pleased to help bring to life the fan experience at Welland Stadium.”

The technology behind the screen is the most advanced in the industry. The Nevco LED design based around True Pixel Technology results in sharper image reproduction on the screen than the traditional virtual shared technology. In addition, fans will be in awe with the live video, replays, graphics, animations, and the size of the state-of-the-art high resolution full 24-bit true colour video screen.

"Bringing in the latest technology and doubling the size of our board makes this an absolute Home Run for Jackfish fans," stated Jackfish President Ryan Harrison. "We want to thank the 2022 Canada Summer Games and the City of Welland for being our partners for this ballpark enhancement. This project would not be possible without their continued support of the community. As the largest video display in the Intercounty League, this will take the fan experience at Welland Stadium to an entirely new level."

There will be great opportunities to bring even more events besides baseball to the stadium with this high-tech addition, enabling movie nights, live streaming of events, and more.

"We are proud to be playing a role in supporting the delivery of this new video board to Welland Stadium, which will help enhance the spectator experience of the many fans who come watch the Welland Jackfish at the Pond. As we look ahead to next August, we also can't wait to host the baseball competitions of the Niagara 2022 Canada Summer Games at Welland Stadium, where we'll be crowning a national champion," said Doug Hamilton, Board Chair of the Niagara 2022 Host Society.

In March of this year, the Welland Jackfish announced a six-year lease with the City of Welland that will see the Jackfish call Welland Stadium home until at least the end of the 2026 season, with part of the lease extending for an additional six years following 2026.
