Abilene Christian's Moody Coliseum will have video boards, beginning with the volleyball season this fall.

The boards will be hung on both the north and south ends of the coliseum later this summer, long before ACU's first home volleyball match on Sept. 23.

The boards were purchased by ACU athletics using funds from the new 10-year partnership with IMG College signed earlier this year. The boards were purchased from Northwestern University earlier this summer when they were removed from NU's Welsh-Ryan Arena as part of a multi-million dollar renovation to the university's arena in Evanston, Illinois

Moody Coliseum's current scoreboard is a center-hung board that does not have high-definition video capability.

"The new video boards will take the atmosphere at Moody to another level," ACU director of athletics Lee De León said. "(Associate director of athletics for internal operations) Drew Long did a great job securing those boards for us through contacts he had from his playing career at Northwestern, and we're excited to add those boards to the coliseum to increase the excitement at our events for both student-athletes and fans."

The Outfront Media video boards were installed in Welsh-Ryan Arena before the 2014-15 season and are three years old. The video boards are 25 feet wide and will cover 238 square feet on each end of the coliseum.
