MSU spends big on stadium upgrades

STARKVILLE- The Mississippi State Bulldogs are upgrading the sound system at Davis Wade Stadium. 

The current sound system at the football stadium is due for an upgrade. The College Board approved the plan to hire an architect for the $2 million project.

The University cited in documents given to trustees that the current system causes a delay for people at one end of the stadium, that does not match up with the video on the screen. A replacement would eliminate that problem, and excessive echos.

“Mississippi State University is excited about the opportunity to continue the upward trajectory of our athletic venues. The first impression we make in attracting students, faculty and staff to our academic programs is often made in those athletic venues and over the last decade, MSU has made phenomenal strides in improving our gameday experiences. These improvements at Davis Wade Stadium are part of that effort,” said Sid Salter Chief Communications Officer/Director Office of Public Affairs.

Cooke Douglas Farr Lemons Architects have been tasked with evaluating the current equipment to see if any of it is reusable.
