ACT government's latest investment in Canberra Stadium will enhance the match-day experience of the Green Machine's faithful.
The government has released a notice of upcoming tender to engage a contractor for the supply and installation of a second video replay board at Canberra Stadium.
The dimensions of the existing screen limits what can be shown, but the second replay board will be appropriately sized and equipped with the latest technology.
"The current screen does a job, but obviously a new screen gives us the opportunity to enhance the at-venue experience, which could include having live stats on screen and more fan interaction on game day," a Raiders spokesman said.
"Obviously the long term vision is a new stadium, but its great to see investment in the current venue. Being able to provide better facilities is key in driving match attendance in a very competitive market.
"We've introduced initiatives like the Viking Clap and Autograph Alley to our game days, so improved infrastructure is another way to make it a better experience for our members and fans."
Sports minister Richard Colbeck says the federal government will not waive the ACT government's Mr Fluffy loan, despite claiming upgrading sporting infrastructure was a key priority.

Debate about building a new stadium in the heart of the city was ignited once more after the Canberra Raiders and ACT Brumbies played games at the new Western Sydney Stadium last month.
Canberra Stadium is on the cusp of bringing up its half-century and both clubs have pushed for a new venue to be built in Civic.
ACT Chief Minister Andrew Barr's plans to build a roofed stadium on the site of Civic pool would potentially see Parkes Way realigned in what could be a $400 million investment.
But those plans have been put on the backburner as the government foots the bill for the Mr Fluffy asbestos saga, for which they received a $1 billion loan from their federal counterparts.
With the federal government shutting down hopes of the debt being forgiven, a new stadium in Civic is unlikely to be built before 2025 because priorities lay with hospitals and schools.
