In order for athletes to compete normally, the lighting of the stadium must meet certain lighting requirements. Generally speaking, the larger the field, the faster the speed, the smaller the ball, and the higher the lighting standard. The players are on the playing field, the distance between each other and the ball is very close, and the vision of the players and the referee is unobstructed. Therefore, for athletes and referees, the horizontal illuminance of 150-3001ux can be used for normal competition.

Athletes require different levels of lighting than spectators. Athletes have a relatively close line of sight on the competition field, and a relatively low lighting level can meet the competition needs. The audience is different, their purpose is to watch the game, relatively speaking, the audience’s line of sight is relatively far away, and the viewing position is relatively fixed. As the player moves, the audience’s gaze moves with it. Therefore, the lighting standard increases with the increase of the viewing distance of the audience, and the illuminance is a key indicator of whether the audience can see clearly.

According to the International Olympic Committee market report, the 1980 Moscow Summer Olympics TV broadcast fee was 101 million US dollars. Twenty years later, the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games soared to 1.318 billion US dollars, an increase of 12.17 US dollars, 13.05 times that of 1980.

Therefore, sports lighting should also meet the needs of this group.
