Benefits of Sports Lighting

Listed below are some of the benefits of Sports Lighting Systems:

Energy Efficient

LED sports lighting systems have cut lights energy usage by up to 75% if you think about how many lights the usual stadium needs, this can lead to a massive increase in savings and leave less of a carbon footprint.


LED lights can be used for all kinds of applications. Outdoor LED lighting systems can give your stadium or sports pitch a welcoming and exciting appearance as the spectators arrive.


LED lights are really controllable, they can respond to game action like no other lighting solution possible. LED lights can provide the same lighting conditions consistently throughout the day.

Lack of Maintenance

Maintenance is a massive factor when it comes to stadium operations. LED lights reduce the maintenance work load by a large amount as the bulbs do not need to be replaced as much.

All Year Usage

With natural pitches it is quite common to have games called off in the winter months if the lighting quality is not up to par with playing conditions. With both a artificial pitch and sports lighting we guarantee that you will be able to play your games throughout the winter months.

What is Sports Floodlighting?

Sports floodlighting systems are specifically designed to light up outdoor sports areas. Sports floodlighting works by flooding an area with a large amount of light, they can produce wider beams of light which usually range up to 120 degrees.

Switching to LED lighting has had a positive impact on the sport as LED lighting lasts much longer than traditional lighting, we have also found the LED lighting quality is far superior than more traditional lighting systems.

LED lighting has given so much to the viewing experience of football games, the world wide use of LED lighting has meant that broadcasted games are now 100% flicker free. This isn’t achievable with traditional lighting.
