With an Absence of Sports, Play Classic Sports Moments on the Jumbotron

Play Classic Sports Moments on the Jumbotron During Coronavirus

The beginning of spring is typically one of the best times to watch sports, with March Madness, the start of the NHL playoffs and NBA playoffs, the start of the MLB season, the NFL draft, the Masters, and much more. But amid the global shutdown caused by the Coronavirus, all of these sports, understandably, have been cancelled or postponed as well. Of course, this is fairly low on the priority list with everything going on, but sports serve as a great source of entertainment, and more importantly, a distraction from everything going on in our everyday lives.

Right now, people could use a distraction more than ever, as well as another source of entertainment. But with all major sports gone, large gatherings banned, social distancing in place, and everyone quarantined to their homes, what can be done? One solution is to play some classic sporting events on a huge jumbotron screen as a “drive-in” theater. Our mobile LED screens can be used to display amazing moments in sports, such as past March Madness tournaments, hockey and basketball playoffs, or simply just some of the most memorable sports moments.

People are looking for any way to fill the void of these huge sporting events being cancelled, and the closest thing may be to turn to past games or tournaments. By creating a drive-in showing of these sporting events, you can create a safe environment where guests don’t need to leave their vehicles so they can help “flatten the curve” and keep themselves and others safe. We can easily set up our mobile screens almost anywhere, such as a field or parking lot. People can pull up and watch the games from the comfort and safety of their cars. We have a sound system that can play the audio, or we can set up an FM transmitter system so they can listen through an FM radio station on their car stereo.

This can be a great way to create community engagement, visibility, and maybe some press for your business. Guests will remember the nice gesture once the threat of COVID-19 has passed, and will be more likely to visit your establishment in the future. It can also create a little extra revenue when so many small business are struggling to stay open. You can offer food and drink delivery to their vehicles, sell merch, charge a small admission fee, and more. You will also have a targeted sports audience that you can use to sell advertising time on the jumbotron to other companies so they can play their ads during breaks and commercials. And of course you can also advertise your own company and deliver branding and messaging on the video wall.
