An LED scoreboard that can broadcast video and audio, work as a public address system and run advertising from sponsors has been installed at Sir Jack Brabham Park.

A working party put the screen’s LED panels into the prefabricated steel frame, which was then lifted into place by a crane at the southern end of Bernie Stedman Field (BSF) on Thursday.

The scoreboard will be used for matches on BSF from next month.

President of the Orange and District Football Association (ODFA), Tony Mileto, said the scoreboard was the next stage in turning BSF into a first class soccer venue for Orange.

“It’s a program that has been in the pipeline for probably 18 months and it’s finally come to fruition,” he said.

“It’s an opportunity to do a number of things here at Sir Jack Brabham Park, to increase the standard of the facilities and attract higher categories of games.”

The scoreboard is the next step in transforming BSF, with plans to extend the pitch to the south by 10 metres in the next couple of years.

It’s also expected that lighting will be installed to competition standards to allow night matches to be played on the pitch.
