In October 2015, Commonwealth Stadium, home to the University of Kentucky’s football team, completed a $120 million renovation, which included the installation of a CastNET Sports Solutions digital signage system by Alpha Video Sports & Entertainment, of Eden Prairie, MN. The objectives for the CastNET system were to improve fan experience, increase revenue for the university, and increase safety.

The Commonwealth Stadium renovation included adding more private suites, more club seats, new press facilities, a multi-purpose recruiting room, improved concession areas, and the CastNET Sports system, which manages content on the screens in the concourses, suites, lobbies, locker rooms, recruiting rooms, press box, and lounges

The CastNET StatsView is integrated with Stat Crew Software, so live game-day statistics can be shown on stadium screens.
