Football Field Lighting 

Football stadiums can be divided into professional and amateur venues according to their purpose, and the requirements for illumination, uniformity, and glare of venue lights vary. Football field lighting needs to meet the following different requirements:

• On the premise of meeting the visual requirements of players and referees, football field lighting should minimize the adverse impact of lighting on the game; Meet the visual requirements of the audience and minimize the discomfort caused by lighting while watching the game; Meet photography and camera lighting requirements, and maximize image quality.

• In addition, amateur venues usually hold leisure football matches at night, and efficient lighting systems can fully attract people to participate in the game. Although the lighting brightness of such places is significantly lower than that of official activities, high standards should be maintained regarding uniform lighting efficiency, visual comfort, and avoiding interference with light. This is particularly important because leisure and sports facilities are typically residential.

Football Field Lighting

The lighting quality of a football field mainly depends on the illuminance level, illuminance uniformity and glare control degree. The lighting level required by athletes is different from that of spectators. For athletes, the required lighting level is relatively low, while the purpose of spectators is to watch the game. The lighting requirements increase with the increase of viewing distance. The degree of light produced by the lamps depends on the density of the lamps, the projection direction, the quantity, the viewing position in the arena, the ambient brightness, etc.


The number of football field lighting fixtures is related to the number of auditorium seats in the stadium. Relatively speaking, the training field only needs to install simple lamps; while large stadiums need to install more lamps, and control the light beams to achieve the purpose of high illumination and low glare.
