How to choose LED Sports lights?

LED Sports lights are higher energy-efficient, long life, and cost-saving compared with traditional light sources. When choosing LED Sports lights, you should consider the following specifications:

1.Lux levels requirement

The light meter or lux meter measure the lighting levels on a sports field. Lighting levels are defined according to sport type and usage to ensure good visual conditions for players, referees and spectators.

Here are some examples of lighting levels for different sports:

a.When soccer: from 75 lux(also 200 lux in between) to 500 lux for training and the official match;

b.When tennis indoor: from 300 lux(also 500 lux in between) to 750 lux for for training and an official match.

2.Power and lumen

The number of lumens you need depends on the size of your field and how bright you want it to be. For example, a 300 watt LED puts out 50,000 lumens and can replace a 1000 watt metal halide;

3.Color Temperature

Usually the color temperature for a sports facility is 6000K because it is the most vibrant of all and is the closest to the white color temperature. This light has the effect of providing a clear view of daylight, which is helpful for the use of sports facilities such as stadiums and sports fields.

4.Beam Angle

Choosing the right beam angle will produce an even light across the field with no dull spots or blinding cross beams. The most common stadium lights’ beam angle has a 30º and produce a 50-foot diameter circle of light from 30 feet. From 50 foot it shall produce a 70-foot circle of perfect light. And usually the lights would be mounted at 40 feet to 60 feet.


Low glare or no glare will allow players to more accurately judge the height and location of the ball to improve their game performance. And the referee can make more accurate judgments and improve the fairness and impartiality of the game.

6.LED Driver

Most of LED lights require at constant voltage, and the commonly used power supply brands are Meanwell, Inventronics, etc.

7.Heat Sinks

Most of heat sinks are Die-Aluminum, and some better heat sinks is cold-folder Aluminum, LM6 Aluminum, etc.

8.Pole Arrangements.

The pole arrangements for sports lights depend on the size of the field and the level of play that baseball/softball fields are meant for. For football field lighting, we recommend two pole quantities: four and six A four-pole arrangement includes two poles located on each side, far away from the sidelines.
