Choose professional LED stadium lights for football stadiums

Why do more and more football stadiums use professional LED stadium lights?

Sports lighting has developed rapidly in the past three years and LED sports arena lighting will become a trend in the next five years. Since 2015, 30% of stadium lights in Europe and the United States have switched from traditional metal halide lamps to more adaptable and energy-saving LED sports lighting. For example, Bayern Munich’s Allianz Arena, Otkrytie Bank Arena, Aviva Stadium, Stadion Narodowy, and so on. Major League Soccer President Don Garber talked about the rise of LED systems in sports lighting facilities during a visit to the Allianz Stadium under construction in Minnesota, and why so many football stadiums use LED technology and professional LED stadium lights.

According to Don Garber, there are 3 reasons why LED sports lighting systems are chosen for the most advanced football stadium: to improve TV broadcasting, enhance the fan’s experience, and reduce long-term operating costs.

Professional LED stadium lighting fixtures and smart control systems can improve TV broadcasting.

Television broadcasting has played an important role in influencing the evolution of lighting for a long time. From professional football sports leagues to college football matches, LEDs enhance TV broadcasting by eliminating flicker slow-motion playback (a problem that is common with metal halide lamps). Equipped with advanced LED field lighting, playing without flicker at 20,000 frames per second, so fans can meticulously capture every second of the replay.

When using led lights for football fields to illuminate the playing field, because the football led lights can achieve a balance between warm and cold colors, the image appears brighter and clearer on the TV. There are almost no shadows, glare, or black spots, so movement remains clear and smooth. Also, you can adjust the LED sports lighting system according to the venue of the game, the time of the game, and the type of game broadcast.

The professional LED arena spotlights can enhance the fans’ experience in the game.

With the help of the LED sports lighting system, fans have a better experience, which not only improves the viewing of the game but also increases the audience’s participation. The best-LED sports lighting has an instant-on function, so the lights can be adjusted immediately during a half-time break or during a game break.

Advanced LED sports lighting systems can reduce operating costs.

The advancement of lighting technology has also made the operating costs of LED stadium lights more attractive than ever and more affordable than traditional lighting such as metal halide lamps. The installation of LED sports lighting fixtures in football stadiums can save 75% to 85% of the total energy cost.

So, how much does it cost to light a football stadium? The average installation cost of the arena ranges from US$125,000 to US$400,000, while the installation cost of the football stadium ranges from US$800,000 to US$2 million, depending on the area of ​​the football field, lighting facilities, etc. With the reduction of energy-saving and maintenance costs, the return on investment of LED sports lighting systems will usually be seen within a few years.
