Initially, the plan was to spend around $12 million to replace both the north and south video boards. As the upgrades continue, it looks like the video board project may end up costing $4 million less than expected. Fun fact, when the stadium was built in 1927 it cost $950,000 (which is equivalent to $12 million in 2021.)
