Scoreboard installed over renovated LaHaye Ice Center ice test test test test

When it opens over Homecoming Weekend, Oct. 23-24, Liberty University's expanded LaHaye Ice Center will have a capacity for approximately 4,000 fans, including 10 upper-level suites and standing-room-only areas around its concourse.

New features include two upper-level concession stands, expanded locker and training room space on the ground level, and a four-sided video scoreboard, similar to the one in the Vines Center, suspended directly above center ice. (Watch a timelapse video of this week's installation.)

"The scoreboard will be unbelievable, from a game atmosphere and from a fan's perspective," Liberty ACHA Division I men's hockey Head Coach Kirk Handy said. "We are really, really looking forward to that. It'll be amazing.

"From a fan experience, I'm so excited for the fans to get in here that first night," he added. "I know how excited our players are and I know how excited the students at Liberty will be, and the fans, because it's definitely an awesome environment here. It'll be enjoyable and we want our guys to enjoy the atmosphere here and to thrive in it."
