Nationals Park continues partnership with ANC since 2008 replacing more than 9,000 Square Feet of Signage for Opening Day 2024

During the club’s annual preseason media tour, the Washington Nationals today revealed Nationals Park’s most significant upgrade to existing field signage since opening in 2008.  During the off-season, ANC replaced more than 9,000 square feet of existing ballpark signage, marking a full-circle moment, as ANC initially designed, produced, and installed the original signage for its debut in 2010.

This extensive project features upgrades to all the existing field-facing digital signs within the bowl with state-of-the-art Lighthouse LED and digital offerings, control system integration, and a long-term service and maintenance agreement also supported by ANC.  

Specifically, ANC installed the more than 4,780-square-foot main scoreboard, three rotational signs behind home plate, units along the first and third base lines, ribbon signage throughout the ballpark, and the out-of-town scoreboard on the right-center field wall.

The 47-foot by 102-foot main scoreboard and the 12-foot by 102-foot out-of-town scoreboard will now both present images with 8MM clarity, making Nationals Park one of just a handful of MLB stadium scoreboards with this capability.  Additionally, the ribbon boards, which run from foul pole to foul pole and divide the loge and mezzanine levels throughout the park, have been upgraded to 10MM resolution.  

“It is the ultimate compliment when a long-time partner like the Nationals and their consultants at WJHW select us for such an important initiative as it’s a testament to the quality of the service we have provided and their belief that we can step up to new challenges with innovative solutions to elevate the ballpark experience for fans, players and partners,” said Jerry Cifarelli, Jr., CEO of ANC.  “Each new assignment is not just a project; it's a continued partnership, built on a foundation of proven excellence and a shared vision for success."

Also notable, the home plate signage will now feature 4MM digital technology.  Among the first of this quality behind home plate at an MLB ballpark, this high-resolution presentation creates a more flexible system for the Nationals and ensures clearer content, a faster refresh rate, and the ability to swap content much more easily throughout the season.

Also extending the ANC's Advertising Division and Nationals advertising partnership since 2008, ANC will continue to develop new corporate partnerships on the National's behalf for the next five years.
