How Much Power LED Lights Should Be Used For football stadium lighting

Football field lighting design is a highly functional, technical and difficult design. It is not only necessary to meet the various needs of football stadium lighting, but also to facilitate the ideal state of remote mobilization, to facilitate the correct judgment of referees, and to facilitate the viewing effect of all players in the audience. Therefore, there are many factors that need to be considered, such as the size of the venue: 5-a-side venue, 7-a-side venue or 11-a-side venue.

Sports personnel or persons in charge of stadiums know that football fields are generally divided into 11-a-side football fields, 7-a-side football fields and 5-a-side football fields. The size of the standard 11-a-side football field is 105x68m. 7-a-side football field length: the longest 75 meters, the shortest 45 meters; width: the longest 56 meters, the shortest 28 meters. The length and width of the 5-a-side football field are required: the field should be rectangular. Length: the shortest 25 meters and the longest 42 meters; width: the shortest 15 meters and the longest 25 meters. International competition court requirements: length: the shortest 38 meters and the longest 42 meters; width: the shortest 18 meters and the longest 22 meters.

Football Field Lighting Standards


Football fields are relatively large, so most of them are outdoors. At the same time, in order to gain more ratings, sports events are generally held at night, while during the day, athletes will conduct various training. Therefore, the football field lighting is very important to the whole. It requires the functionality and high efficiency of the lighting system and lighting fixtures, that is, high light efficiency, long range, energy saving, environmental protection, safety and reliability.

LED stadium lighting, with its low power consumption, energy saving and environmental protection, high luminous efficiency, anti-glare, adjustable color quality, flexible control, and instant lighting, has attracted the attention of major stadiums and colleges. Compared with traditional light sources, LEDs can save energy by 50% to 70%. Traditional lamps, such as high-power metal halide lamps, have an initial lumen output of 100lm/W and a maintenance factor of 0.7 to 0.8, but most venues have a light decay of more than 30% after 2 to 3 years of use.

When a football field requires TV broadcast during a game, the vertical illuminance in the direction of the main camera is required to reach 1000 lux, and the color rendering index is above 80. The lighting level of football stadiums-HDTV broadcasts major and international games have higher requirements: the vertical illuminance in the direction of the main camera must be more than 2000lux, and the vertical illuminance in the direction of the auxiliary camera must be more than 1400lux. This illuminance is required by many ordinary football fields. The lighting is more than multiple.

Football Stadium Lighting System Recommendation

HISHINE Group Limite’s LED Stadium Light has an efficiency of 160-170 lm/W and a constant illuminance output of 50,000 hours, ensuring a constant level and uniformity of illuminance in the venue, and avoiding the increase in the demand and cost of lighting equipment due to the attenuation of illuminance , While reducing the power consumption of lighting equipment. Using the Internet of Things technology, the football field lighting equipment is intelligently managed, and the lighting mode is switched. The mode can be switched on the PC and mobile devices with one key. The lighting can be switched in different modes such as broadcast, competition, amateur competition, and amateur training.
