Did you notice these details about football field lighting?

Soccer is a highly confrontational sport that is popular all over the world. For a modern football field, it is not only required to have complete sports facilities, but also to have a good lighting environment. There are strict requirements in terms of illumination, illumination uniformity, light color, CRI, glare, etc. In addition to the lighting effects required by the players for the competition, it also needs to meet the audience’s good viewing experience and the TV broadcast needs of major events.

The most important goal of football field lighting is to illuminate the playing field and provide the media with a high-quality digital video signal that will not cause unpleasant glare to players and referees, and will not cause spill and glare to spectators and the surrounding environment.

Installation Height of Lamps

The installation height of the luminaire determines the success of the lighting system. The height of the light fixture frame or light pole should meet the angle of 25° from the center of the field to the direction of the stadium auditorium and the horizontal plane. The height of the luminaire frame or pole may exceed the minimum angle requirement of 25°, but should not exceed 45°.

Football Field Illumination Standard (JGJ)

The lighting system is divided into six levels (level I-level VI). Three of these levels require high-quality television broadcasts. In sports fields that need to be televised, in order to ensure that each camera receives enough light to record high-quality video, the lighting design should consider the actual camera positions used. The primary goal of the lighting system is to ensure that the light on the side and bottom lines of the venue is symmetrical, and when it is necessary to add fixed cameras and venue cameras, the quality of the digital recording will not be affected.

Viewers and Broadcast Perspectives

Providing a glare-free environment for athletes, referees and the media was the most important design requirement. The following two areas are defined as glare areas, where no luminaires can be placed.

(1) Corner line area

In order to maintain good visibility for the goalkeeper and attacking players in the corner area, lighting should not be placed within 15° of the goal line.

(2) Area behind the goal line

In order to maintain good visibility for attacking players and defenders in front of the goal, as well as for TV crews on the other side of the field, lighting equipment should not be placed within 20° behind the goal line and within 45° above the level of the goal line.

Football Field Lighting Fixtures

For professional football games, the choice of lighting fixtures is very important. High-quality lighting fixtures and scheme design can effectively avoid problems such as spill light, glare, and uneven illumination, bring bright and comfortable lighting effects to football fields, save energy, reduce operation and maintenance costs, and greatly improve football fields. utilization and overall quality levels.
