MSU Spartan Stadium Scoreboard

Project Overview

In 2012, Michigan State University (MSU) upgraded its 567 square foot scoreboard to a new 5,300 square foot display. The expansion was part of a $10 million project to upgrade the stadium’s viewing experience. Helical piers provided an ideal solution to overcome poor soil conditions and uplift concerns on the current scoreboard. Piers were driven approximately 45 feet deep to transfer the weight of the structure to slate beneath the stadium. The Spartan Stadium scoreboard is considered the fifth largest video scoreboard in the country.
