Why LED Sports Lighting Become More And More Popular in Football Venues?


Not only has LED sports lighting developed rapidly in three years, but also it has become a trend in next five years. Since 2015, 30% of football field lighting in Europe and America has changes from traditional Metal Halide lamps to more adaptable and enemy-efficient LED sports lighting. For example, the home team Bayern Munich's Allianz Arena, the Otkrytiye Arena, the Aviva Stadium, the Warsaw National Stadium and so on. 

The Secretary of the United States, Don Garb, in the construction of the Allianz Arena in Minnesota, talked about the rise of LED systems in sports lighting facilities and why so many football stadium lighting uses LED technology.

According to Don-Garber, there are three main reasons for choosing the LED sports lighting system for the most advanced football venues: improving TV broadcasts, enhancing the fan experience, and reducing long-term operating costs.

LED sports lighting and control can improve TV broadcast.

Television broadcasting has long played an important role in influencing the evolution of lighting. From professional football sports leagues to college football games, LEDs enhance television broadcasts by eliminating slow-motion replays of strobes, which are common on metal halide lamps. Equipped with advanced LED football field illumination, these clips can now play flicker-free at 20,000 frames per second, so fans can capture every second of the replay.

When the LED football field lighting is used to illuminate the playing field, the image is more bright and clear on the TV because the LED football field lighting can balance between warm and cool colors. There are almost no shadows, glare, or black spots, so the motion remains clear and unobstructed. The LED sports lighting system can also be adjusted according to the venue of the competition, the time of the competition and the type of competition being broadcast.

LED sports lighting system can enhance the experience of fans in the game.

Fans have a better experience with the help of the LED sports lighting system, which not only improves the viewing of the game, but also increases the participation of the audience. LED sports lighting has the ability to instantly turn on, so the operator of stadiums can adjust the lights at halftime or during the game.

Advanced LED sports lighting system reduces operating costs.

Advances in lighting technology have also made LED sports lighting more attractive than ever, and more affordable than traditional lighting such as metal halide lamps. Football stadiums with LED sports lighting can save 75% to 85% of total energy costs.

 

So, what is the total project cost? The average installation cost of the arena ranges from $125,000 to $400,000, while the cost of installing football stadiums ranges from $800,000 to $2 million, depending on the size of the football field, lighting facilities, etc. As energy and maintenance costs decrease, the return on investment in LED sports lighting systems is often seen in a few years.

OAK LED LED stadium lights are strictly in accordance with the requirements of international sports competitions. Using the most advanced technology and the best materials, our lamps can make the illuminance of the venues reach 1500-2000 lux with lowest flicker. In the meanwhile, the high CRI can meet the standard of TV broadcasts, which can help the spectators and the visitors capture every second on the field.
