Charlotte will play host to one of sports’ biggest stages when the NBA All-Star game comes to town in February of 2016
The new center-hung scoreboard, which will be one of the biggest in the NBA, will consist entirely of high definition electronic LED panels, with the screen Charlotte Hornets to Debut New Monster Scoreboard Just in Time For All-Star (Photo)forming the entire face of the scoreboard. The size of the two sideline boards will be 25.2’ high x 42.8’ wide, while the two end zone boards will be 18’ high x 31.3 wide. The scoreboard’s square footage increase will be 180% larger for the sideline boards and 50% larger for the end zone boards compared to the team’s current scoreboard, providing Hornets fans with an enhanced game experience.
