Boise State Gets $4.5M Gift for New Video Board

Boise State football will be getting a brand new end zone video board at Albertsons Stadium thanks to a $4.5 million donation from Melaleuca, a privately held health products manufacturer based in Idaho Falls.

Athletic director Jeramiah Dickey announced the donation on Thursday. It is the largest one-time facility gift in the history of Boise State Athletics, according to Bronco Sports

The state-of-the-art video board is slated to be 120 feet wide and 50 feet tall. At 6,000 square feet, the new board would be roughly 1,800 square feet larger than the largest video board in the conference.

"When it comes to TV screens and scoreboards, bigger is better," said Melaleuca CEO Frank VanderSloot. "With a college football program as legendary as Boise State and a fanbase that encapsulates our entire state, the fans deserve a top-of-the-line video board worthy of Boise State's reputation as a world-class football power. I'm glad that Melaleuca could provide it."

Boise State president Dr. Marlene Tromp expressed her gratitude for the gift in a statement.

"We are incredibly grateful to Melaleuca for the company's investment in Boise State University," said Dr. Marlene Tromp, Boise State president. "Not only will this new screen showcase football excitement in Albertsons Stadium, but it also will enhance the experience at all events held in the stadium, including our spring commencement ceremonies, student movie nights, concerts and more. This is a gift that will impact our entire community."
