Bristol Rovers are disappointed to announce that there has been a further delay to the installation of the big screen at the Memorial Stadium, meaning it will not be in operation for tomorrow’s game.
As previously stated the club purchased the new 30sqm screen in July last year from Stadia Solutions, a leading international sports and entertainment agency that specialises in fully managed technology and media platforms, with the aim of having the screen installed next to the Brunel sponsored South Stand by the end of 2018.
Although the screen was delivered on time in October, due to its size a special bespoke support structure was required to attach the screen to the current steelworks at the stadium. Unfortunately, the unique nature of this structure led to various complications with Stadia Solutions’ sub-contractor, resulting in subsequent delays with installation.
Work started this week, ahead of the new proposed completion date of this weekend. However, the contractors have experienced further unforeseen issues on site which has delayed installation slightly. The team has been working tirelessly to fix the problems encountered but unfortunately screen will not be installed and operational in time for tomorrow’s game which is hugely disappointing. Work will continue next week and completed as soon as it possible.
We apologise for the further inconvenience and would like to thank all supporters and screen sponsor Brunel Professions for their continued patience.
