Stadium & Sports Field Lighting

Stadium & Sports Field Lighting

Very few sports fields at any level of play are open only during the day. People are at work, kids are at school, and even in the age of remote work and virtual school, there aren’t too many rec leagues taking the field at 1 pm on a Tuesday. That’s why an LED sports field lighting system is almost as important as the field itself for any sports complex. Sports complex managers and designers have to consider many of the same factors in choosing their lighting system as they do when coming up with the specs for a new playing surface. 

The sports that will play on the field, the level of competition, and the presence of fans all shape the technical requirements of the lighting system. The facility’s budget comes into play for both the upfront cost of installing the lights and the long-term operational and maintenance costs: how many hours a day will the lights be on, what lights are most energy-efficient and how often will they need to be replaced?
