    Hey all,

    Am wondering if any of you have come across any products that would be appropriate for outdoor use on a football field? They would need to be able to be weighted down, many of the installations will be on turf, running tracks, etc. Also able to withstand wind and be fairly easy to setup/teardown/transport.

    Will need sideline versions (similar to A-frames or transframe signs) @ approx 6'-8'w x 2'-3' tall. But will also need larger, more impactful options approx 6'-8' tall by 6'-10' wide.

    I think the smaller signs are easy to source, but am kinda stuck on something larger. Any of you have any ideas? Thanks!

    We used Dibond substrate with printed vinyl. Attached the signs directly to the walls of the stadium. Easy enough to go up, easy enough to come down.

    Did I misread that - my bad. So this isn't for the stadium itself so much as to cover the field while not in use....ok big time my bad. :doh:

    that's a different story and I don't know how it turns out.

    There are several suppliers of pre made frames for sideline advertising
    We made our own out of pvc pipe, used sand tubes for weights.

    Pat: great link, hadn't see that one. That kind of stuff is exactly what I'm looking for, thanks.
