As an event organizer, you should be able to give spectators a total fan experience. Your aim is to leave them oh so satisfied and wanting a repeat. Well, if digital signage works for concerts, it should do well to a sporting event.
Listed below are just three of the many sports (or group of disciplines) that will surely and greatly benefit from LED technology. Spectator sports, as you will notice, may benefit best from an LED sign but really, an LED sign should give any other sport a complete fan experience.
Skateboarding, snowboarding, wake-boarding, cycling disciplines like Four Cross and Dirt Jump, the list goes on. Who doesn’t want a closer look on those aerial acrobats on wheels? Both racing and non-racing extreme sport disciplines are true crowd-drawers and crowd-pleasers. Unlike other sports, someone who does not know a bit of, say BMX racing, would still appreciate the show and the adrenaline rush, and can become an instant fan.
Just like extreme sports, motor-sports are extremely dangerous. In fact, there are motor-sport disciplines that are included in major extreme sport events like the X-Games. They also have racing and non-racing events that feature, well, motorized vehicles on land, sea, and air. Top favorites are formula one, rally car racing, motocross racing, freestyle motocross, speedway, air racing, and hovercraft racing.
With the increased popularity of combat sports, much thanks to mixed martial arts, more and more local fight organizers have employed LED signs in their events. Aside from the more popular combat sports like boxing, kickboxing, and freestyle wrestling, there are also many under the radar disciplines like Fencing, Arnis, and Kendo.
LED displays simply add a totally different dimension to sporting events. In future articles, we will show how they can help with the judging and other technicalities for any sport.
