We’re delighted to announce that brand-new state-of-the-art LED screens have been installed at Easter Road!
As we continue to develop both on and off the pitch, this is the latest upgrade to our home, which will make us a leader in Scotland for supporter matchday engagement.
Through the use of the screens, we aim to enhance the experience of our supporters inside Easter Road by providing them with a pre-match video offering and a live feed of the game. The video content will develop week on week and in-game replays will eventually be introduced.
The screens are situated in the corners of the East Stand, however, supporters who have seats in that stand won’t miss out! Inside the East Stand, there are two smaller screens and digital scoreboards.
Now the installation is complete, supporters will be able to see the screens in action this Saturday (18 September, 2021) as we take on St Mirren. Content will be shown from 14:30 - so make sure you’re in your seats early so you can see them in action!
Enhancing the matchday experience through the use of big screens was one of Executive Chairman Ronald J Gordon’s aims when he became owner of Hibernian FC as he looks to constantly innovate and create the best experience for supporters.
“We’re delighted to have fulfilled an early promise and ambition of ours by installing four top of the range screens at Easter Road,” he said.
“We’re really passionate about increasing supporter engagement and making sure that supporters have the best possible experience when they visit us on a matchday; these screens will certainly be a major part of that.
“The installation of the screens shows that we continue to move forward as a football club, and we are always looking to innovate.
“We’d also like to thank ADI for their work with us. Over the last 18 months we’ve worked incredibly close together to make sure the screens worked at Easter Road from a technological and structural point of view.
“I’m excited to see them in action on Saturday against St Mirren and I hope you enjoy our pre-match show!”
The two main screens are 59m² in size and the two inside the East Stand are 15m² in size.
We will continue to work with ADI as they are providing a full matchday content service, which will be delivered via broadcast fibre direct from ADI’s Preston-based Live Venue galleries.
