The Regina Pats Hockey Club is pleased to announce an exciting new addition to the Pats game-day experience at the Brandt Centre: a state-of-the-art, NHL-calibre digital score clock that will revolutionize the way Regina hockey fans enjoy their favourite game.
“We wanted to raise the stakes for Pats fans in a big way,” says Regina Pats co-owner Shaun Semple. “Regina has faithfully supported this team for almost a century and we owe it to our fans to deliver the very best. This clock is an absolute game-changer; it will be among the most impressive in the league. We’re very proud that it, and the necessary upgrades to the building, are being 100% designed, built and managed right here in Regina by Brandt, exclusively using local suppliers and trades.” Total cost for the clock and Brandt Centre upgrades will be over $3 million.
The new clock, which will be unveiled at the Pats January 23rd home game, is one part of a complete digital entertainment system and features the highest stadium LED HD resolution in Canada at 4.9 mm vs. other stadiums at 8mm+. It includes ten display screens totaling 4.37 million pixels, with four large main video displays, four curved corner sponsor video displays, and top and bottom ring screens. It is the largest suspended score clock in Saskatchewan at 23.4’x 17’ and weighs in at an impressive 22,000lb.
This upgrade is yet another demonstration of the new Pats ownership group’s unwavering commitment to enhancing value for Regina hockey fans. “This new clock will offer unprecedented access to real-time game stats and video to our fans while providing our sponsors with many new opportunities,” adds Anthony Marquart, Regina Pats Governor.
Work has recently been completed on renovations and structural upgrades to the Brandt Centre, necessary to accommodate the massive new electronic displays.
