“What is going on outside the Schottenstein Center by Lane and Olentangy?” That has been a frequent question these past few days from people passing by the 20,000 seat arena.
The Arena Guy is the first to share that all the commotion is because a 28 ft. wide x 37 ft. tall Panasonic electronic marquee is being installed. The marquee will inform the public of concerts and events being presented by Columbus Arena Sports and Entertainment (CASE) at the Schottenstein Center, Nationwide Arena and Ohio Stadium. Athletic events at the Ohio State University will also be highlighted.
The marquee arrived at the Schottenstein Center late this week and in this photo is awaiting the completion of the advance preparation outside the arena before it could be installed.
Installation of the marquee is expected to be completed by this weekend; it is anticipated it will be up and running by early next week.
