What to consider in a Stadiums and Courts lighting project?


If you are planning the lighting for a sports stadium or a court, you know how crucial it is to ensure visibility, efficiency, and energy savings. After all, lighting plays an essential role in the safety and performance of athletes. In this article, we will explore what you should consider when creating a lighting project for stadiums and courts, focusing on the performance and efficiency of the luminaires:

🔸 1. Compliance with Standards and Regulations: Make sure your lighting project complies with local and international standards and regulations. This will ensure that your field, court, or any sports facility is safe, efficient, and complies with specific guidelines for the sports events you promote. The minimum illuminance recommended by FIFA is 500 LUX for general matches, varying according to the type of tournament, such as the World Cup, which needs to have between 1,500 and 2,000 LUX of average illuminance. Another factor to consider in the project, even if it’s not for displaying a World Cup, is that the minimum illuminance recommended for TV broadcasted games is 800 LUX.

🔸 2. Uniform Light Distribution: Ensure that light distribution is uniform across the entire playing area. This will prevent shadows on the field, dark areas, or even excessively illuminated areas, ensuring that all details are visible and that athletes play under equal conditions throughout the field.

🔸 3. Luminous Efficiency is Fundamental: In a lighting project for stadiums and courts, luminous efficiency should be a priority. This means choosing high-performance LED fixtures and reflectors, such as the Modular High Bay Reflector (SX-HBM) and the Olympic Sport Reflector (SX-ROS). Both offer economical and quality lighting, even for televised games.

🔸 4. Control of Light Direction: The direction of light plays an important role in brightness, glare reduction, and increased visual comfort. Using well-directed luminaires with suitable lenses for light distribution avoids excessive shadows and ensures that athletes can focus on every move in the game.

🔸 5. Intensity Control: The ability to control light intensity is essential for different events and lighting needs, turning the environment into a stage for attractions and creating an even more exciting atmosphere. Products with intensity adjustment options and DMX control, for example, can adapt to various situations.

🔸 6. Sustainability and Energy Savings: Energy efficiency is crucial in any LED lighting installation. Choosing high-efficiency and more robust products not only saves energy but also reduces long-term operational costs by minimizing the need for replacements and disposals.

🔸 7. Customized Lighting Design: A well-executed lighting design will determine the number of luminaires, their quantity, power, and help you get everything right in the items mentioned above.

Now that you know the necessary premises for lighting sports areas such as stadiums, fields, and courts, don’t make a mistake when replacing or installing LED floodlights. SX Lighting offers free lighting design to ensure the best efficiency and performance for athletes, following the necessary lighting standards and norms.

Every detail is crucial in the final result of a lighting project for stadiums and courts. Ensure that your sports facility provides the best experience for athletes and fans, while also contributing to energy efficiency and sustainability.
