What lights should the football field be equipped with

First of all, we need to understand the requirements of football field lighting:

Because of the influence of sports space, the direction of motion, range of motion, speed of motion, etc., the lighting of a football field has higher requirements than general lighting. Generally, high color rendering, high illuminance (horizontal illuminance, vertical illuminance), high illuminance uniformity, low glare, etc. are all required for sports lighting; sports venues are relatively large, and to meet the above requirements, special Lamps, and special lighting treatment methods.

Sports space & lighting.

The horizontal illuminance of ground motion is more important, mainly because the light distribution on the ground is required to be uniform, and the space motion requires a very uniform light distribution in a certain space from the ground.

Movement direction and lighting.

In addition to good horizontal illuminance, multi-directional sports events also require good vertical illuminance, and the orientation of the lamps must avoid direct glare to athletes and spectators.

Movement speed and lighting.

Generally speaking, the higher the movement speed, the higher the lighting requirements, but the illuminance required for high-speed movement in one direction is not necessarily higher than that of low-speed movement in multiple directions.

Sports level and lighting.

Generally, the higher the competition level of the same sport, the higher the lighting standards and indicators required. The level of the competition is different, the level of the athletes is also very different, and the lighting level requirements are also different.

Sports venue scope and lighting.

For general sports, in addition to sports venues, the lighting of the main activity area must also reach a certain illuminance value, and the secondary activity area also has a minimum illuminance value.

Color television broadcasting and lighting.

Generally speaking, football field lighting must meet the requirements of athletes in normal games, on-site audiences, media photography, and videography. With the development of color television technology, high-definition digital television (HDTV) broadcasting has officially entered the technical category of international sports competitions. For example, the International Sports Federation (GAISF) has formulated the “Manual Lighting Guide for Multifunctional Indoor Stadiums” and officially included the light environment required for HDTV broadcasting (the vertical illuminance of the stadium in the direction of the main camera should be above 2000lux).

Sports and lighting.

Because the movement space, movement direction, movement range, and movement speed of various sports are quite different. So the requirements for lighting are very different. Therefore, China issued GB 50034-2004 “Architectural Lighting Design Standard”. CIE, FIFA, and other international organizations have given corresponding lighting standards and indicators for various sports events.

The lighting of the football field is an important content of the stadium design. And it is more complicated. It not only meets the requirements of athletes for games and audience watching but also meets the color temperature, illuminance, illuminance uniformity, etc. of the lighting for filming and live TV broadcasting. This requirement is much higher than that of athletes and spectators. In addition, the lighting method of lighting fixtures needs to be closely matched with the overall planning of the stadium and the structure of the stands. In particular, the maintenance of lighting equipment is closely related to architectural design, so it must be considered.

EN-12193-standard

With the advent of the LED light source, although the cost is higher than that of metal halide lamp products, it is advocated by all walks of life to replace metal halide light sources because of the relatively low pollution of the production process or raw materials used in production. Now every venue uses LED as the light source, most of them use 200W-1000W lamps, which have high luminous efficiency (about 130~1801m/W), high color rendering, and color temperature between 5000-6400K, which can meet high definition Color TV (HDTV) requirements for outdoor lighting. The life of the general light source is more than 50000hrs, the efficiency of the lamp can reach 80%, the dustproof and waterproof grade of the lamp is not less than IP65, and the protection grade of the commonly used high-power floodlight can reach IP67.

With multiple of optic lens design, the Nova-UM series stadium light can hit requirements for many different applications

 

The lighting design of the football field is characterized by large lighting space and long distances. Therefore, high-efficiency spotlights are generally used for field lighting. There are four ways to arrange the lights of the football field: four corners, multiple towers on both sides, light strips on both sides, and mixed arrangements. The lighting method to be used should be selected according to the specific conditions of the stadium.

The above is the lighting requirements of the football field and the standards for lighting selection and layout. Below we take the example of an 11-person standard football field as an example to describe the lighting layout.
