Football Score Board


The Challenge

After being without a working scoreboard for a number of years, Southend United Football Club wanted a low cost display for the North Stand of Roots Hall Stadium.

The Solution

Spectra Displays supplied a full colour LED video display capable of showing text, images and movies.


  • 16mm pixel pitch
  • 48 pixels high x 256 pixels wide
  • 768mm high x 4096mm wide

Spectra Displays also supplied custom written PC software that allows team names, team scores, match time, goal animations and adverts to be displayed.

The Result

The display was used for the first time on Saturday 24th November 2012 when Southend United thrashed Rochdale 3-1. The surprised and appreciative fans were captivated by the display.

“The scoreboard looks fantastic” Geoffrey King, Southend United FC
