Markeys Scores its First Goal at Grand Park

Grand Park in Westfield, Indiana recently served as the venue for US Soccer Development Academy’s U-13/14 National Showcase held June 13-16, 2014 and the U-17/18 Academy Playoffs and Showcase held June 23-27, 2014.  Players and teams from all over the country traveled to Westfield to participate in US Soccer’s highest-level program for young men.  Games were played on the natural grass and synthetic fields while over 400 college coaches attended to watch and look for future stars. 


Markey’s Rental & Staging provided four (4) 55” LG monitors, four (4) SRM Mackie 350 powered speakers for attendees to watch the 2014 FIFA World Cup in the Athlete Lounge.  Also, Markey’s Rental & Staging supplied the Referee Ready room with one (1) NEC 300 Projector and one (1) SRM Mackie 350 powered speaker which allowed referees to watch the 2014 FIFA World Cup and conduct seminars with referees using PowerPoint. 


Placing broadcast cable up over multiple monitors and projectors was eliminated by having DIRECTV install a cable box at each monitor and projector.  This way we didn’t have to determine which combination of boxes and adaptors would allow us to split the high definition signal. 


“We were very happy with Markey’s. Your call to go with monitors rather than projectors for the larger room was definitely the right one. The service and flexibility were great. If we come back to Grand Park next year for our showcase, we will enlist your services again.”
