A new LED screen has been officially unveiled at Headingley Cricket Ground during Yorkshire County Cricket Club’s first LV= Insurance County Championship match of the season.

The new LED screen is an impressive 16m x 6.3m using a 10mm pixel pitch, with super-high brightness of up to 10,000 nits for outdoor viewing. The screen is further enhanced by digiLED’s proprietary ZEUS® system which reduces energy costs and carbon footprint.

The screen was installed by world-leading LED screen company digiLED, who have previously created stellar installations including multiple screens at the O2 Arena in London, the Cleveland Cavaliers’ basketball stadium, and the Indiana Pacers in the US, alongside a number of other impressive installations at landmark venues across the globe.

The screen had a test run when Yorkshire took on Leeds/Bradford University team in a three-day pre-season match, at the beginning of April.

Sam Hinchliffe, Director of Operations at The Yorkshire County Cricket Club, said: “It has been a brilliant project to be part of and digiLED, have delivered on every aspect.

“Thanks must also go to Digital Media Tech and the ECB facilities team who provided us with excellent support throughout this project. I am proud to see that our digiLED screen is now a continued focus and centrepiece of this iconic stadium.

“Along with a better quality of picture, the screen gives us a lot more functionality and capability that can be utilised for engaging with the crowd.

“It’s great for interacting with our audience and engaging with supporters – the fine-pitch LED display creates a significant wow factor fans will remember.”

Guy Horrigan, the Commercial Director at digiLED, said: “It has been a pleasure to work once again with the team at Yorkshire County Cricket Club and we are proud to have been involved with amazing the new LED screen at Headingley, replacing the screen we installed back in 2009.

“At digiLED, we pride ourselves with providing innovative technology and bringing our clients vision to life. We believe this latest installation provides YCCC with the technology they envisioned and has helped to elevate the viewers’ match day experience with super-black contrast louvres designed specifically for this challenging application.

“On top of this, our latest green tech, digiLED ZEUS®, will reduce energy costs and carbon footprint, whilst ensuring that the screen’s electronics are kept in tip-top condition during the closed season when the screen is completely powered off, consuming zero electricity.”

The new LED screen is just one of a number of recent improvements to the match-going experience for fans.

This season supporters once again will be able to access the free Controlled Audio Visual Environment (C.A.V.E.) sensory room, which provides a safe haven for visitors on matchdays, helping to reduce social isolation for individuals and families. The C.A.V.E is free to visitors when booked in advance of matchdays.

Visitors also have access to the Club’s Multi-Faith room, which is located at the entrance of the East Stand, and there is the opportunity for supporters to talk with Bishop Chris Edmondson on certain match days in this space.
