3. High Luminous Efficacy (Lumens Per Watt)

135 lm/w
160 lm/w

Luminous efficacy is the major indicator of the performance of a LED bulb. It is calculated as the lumens generated for a single watt of electricity pulled. Luminous efficacy measures how well a bulb produces visible light. Which is usually measured in lumens.

We offer LED Stadium Lights with excellent efficacy ratings. This will save you even more money over early generation LED Stadium Lights.

4. The Right Beam Angle


The beam angle usually dictates the distribution of light. If the beam angle is wide and the light uniformity is very high, the brightness on the ground will be very low. But, if the beam angle is narrow, the light uniformity is low. Many dark spots are on the ground despite the brightness of the light.

Choose lights that have the right beam angle balancing light uniformity with brightness. Our lighting engineers can show you by doing a photometric analysis. This will help you choose lights with the right beam angles.


5. Excellent Heat Dissipation

Heat sinks prevent LED lights from getting damaged because of overheating. Good ones are usually made of pure aluminum which has the best heat conducting rate (238W/mk). The higher the value of the aluminum, the higher its conductivity rate. A good heat dissipation system should provide enough air ventilation passage.

There should be space between each single row of LED chips. The structure should be hollow to reduce air resistance. This helps transfer heat from the lamp to the surrounding area. The heat dissipation section should also be large and dense. Aluminum fins can quicken the cooling process.

6. High CRI

70 CRI
80 CRI


The color rendering index shows how well colors are seen under a certain light source. It defines how a bulb makes an object appear to human eyes. The higher the color rendering index, the better a bulb’s color rendering ability.

When it comes to sports lighting, the color rendering index needs to be 70 and above. We can offer 70 and 80 CRI sport lighting solutions.

7. Glare Rating


While the glare rate is seldom mentioned, it is very essential in sports lighting. Too much glare may lead to visual discomfort and cause people to squint as they watch or play a game. It may also impair the vision of details and objects. For example, players may be unable to see fast-moving balls. Glare also reduces the brightness of the light in some areas.

Our led lights have advanced lenses that focus the light beam and decrease light leakage by 50%.

LED Stadium Light Choice

The glare rating for all light fixtures used in top level competitions must be 50. Fixtures used in intermediate level competitions must also have a glare rating of 50, except those used in athletics which should have a rating of 55. For lower level competitions, the lights must have a glare rating of 55, except those used in bowls (lawn bowls) which should have a glare rating of 50.

8. Color Temperature


Organizations specify the minimum allowable color temperature (correlated color temperature) for sports fields. For instance, FIFA and FIH require their lights to have a CCT of 4000K and above. The NCAA needs lights with a CCT of 3600K and above. While the NFL uses lights with a color temperature of 5600K and above.

Our eyes adapt well to light sources with different color temperatures. Television and digital cameras do not. They must be adjusted to display the colors humans expect to see. This is why it is so important for LED lights in a sports venue to have the proper correlated color temperature. If they don’t, TV cameras will display irritating color shifts as they move across the field.

We offer 4000K and 5000K LED Sport Lighting solutions.


9. Energy savings up to 80%



If we were to use sports terms to describe the energy-efficiency of LEDs, we would say that they are a slam dunk. This is because they generate more light while consuming less electricity. LED stadium lights have gotten popular in a very short time. The major reason why is because of the savings they offer teams, clubs, and owners of sports venues.

Metal halides have a life expectancy of 12,000 - 20,000 hours while LEDs have a rated life of 50,000 - 100,000 hours. Since LEDs last much longer than metal halide lamps, they are perfect for use in stadiums. They are also very well-built and need very little maintenance during their lifetimes.

LED lights can reduce energy consumption by as much as 90%. Pairing them with lighting controls ensure stadium lights are on only when needed. And if the lights are not used every day of the week, their life expectancy goes up.

10. Wet Location - Must be Waterproof


The longevity and efficiency of light fixtures depends on where you install them. Stadium lights are outdoors and affected by conditions such as water and humidity. This is why they must be designed for wet locations.

Wet locations where water can flow, drip, or splash on the fixtures can affect the components. The light fixtures must be UL Listed for wet locations. They should have an IP rating of 66. IP66 rated lights work well in all weather conditions for stadiums and sports fields.

The Intangible Benefit of Converting to LED Stadium Lights

They Improve the Game Experience

LED lights not only improve the game for the spectators, they also improve it for the players. LED lights were installed at a race track in America. The drivers reported that the light was uniform and that glare had been reduced. Precise pole and fixture placement and advanced lenses ensure that drivers have the best visibility around the racetrack.

When LED lights are installed in a hockey rink or a baseball field, they provide uniform light. This helps the players to see the speed of the hockey puck or the baseball. If metal halide lights are used in these spaces, they create bright and dark spots. As the ball travels through a shadow created by a dark spot, it appears to be slowing down or speeding up. This is a disadvantage to a player who only has a second to determine the position of the ball.

Perfect for Broadcasting

Metal halide lights may provide enough lighting to stadiums and sports arenas. But they were never built with today's TV broadcasts in mind. The thing is, a camera does not see light the way a human eye sees it. Modern cameras pick up blue, green, and red spectrums. It mixes these colors to create digital broadcasting.

Lighting that works for fans who are in the stands will not work for fans who are watching the game from home. But most sports venues can't broadcast in ultra HD, even with correct lighting. The lighting systems can't work with 4K or 8K broadcasts. This is another reason why stadiums and sports arenas must embrace LED technology.

Another big advantage of LEDs is that they don't flicker. This means they won't affect slow motion replays with a distracting, flashing effect.


What are Stadium Lights?

A Stadium Light is an indoor or outdoor fixture designed to light up a sports field or indoor arena. They are typically hgh powered - high lumen fixtures with narrow optic patterns to place light in an exact location. In indoor arenas, you will typically find roof mounted or flood fixtures. In outdoor fields, you will find pole mounted or roof mounted fixtures.

Why are LED Stadium Lights better than Metal Halide?

LED's have come a long way in the past 5 years. They are now high power, high lumen fixtures that can easily replace 1000W, 1500W and 2000W Metal Halide. Beyond that, lifespans of LED are significantly longer than Metal Halide, so maintenance becomes a non-issue. And LED lights are instant on, instant off. There are no long warm up periods to get the benefits of the light.

How many lumens are stadium lights?

To replace 1000W Metal Halide, you should consider a LED Lumen package 50000 lumens or greater. To replace 1500W Metal Halide, you should consider a LED Lumen package 75000 lumens or greater. To replace 1000W Metal Halide, you should consider a LED Lumen package 100,000 lumens or greater. 

Foot Candle Recommendations for Stadiums and Sports Arenas

Tennis Court Lighting
Because sporting activities vary, their lighting requirements also vary. Games like cricket are quick action with a small playing object and a long viewing distance. They need high light levels. Football and basketball have a bigger ball and a close viewing distance need optimal light levels.

The Illuminating Engineering Society gives lighting specifications for different sports and recreational areas. There are also other guides that recommend luminance levels for different sports. Lighting recommendations for different sports are usually grouped into classes of play.

Class I: Top level competition

Class II: Middle level competition

Class III: Low level competition as well as supervised training

The EN 12193:2007 recommends these lighting levels for the major sports:

Class IClass I Lux LevelsClass II Lux LevelsClass III Lux Levels
Baseball500 (outfield)300 (outfield)200 (outfield)

LED is the Future of Stadium Lighting

Illuminating stadiums and sports arenas is both an art and a science and will only get better with time. Lights in these spaces ensure that every spot has several light fixtures directed at it. Spectators can see their faces and distinguish their facial expressions. And because of this, they feel closer to the game. This is an art.

We have also built global positioning systems and accelerometers into our lights. This is a science.

LED is the best stadium lighting and soon, all major sporting will be playing under LEDs. Different countries around the world are building stadiums with LEDs supporting green initiatives.

Retrofitting with LEDs is a cost-efficient alternative for existing sports venues. Most stadiums can expect to recoup their investment in less than 3 years. When you consider the benefits of LEDs – and the energy savings –switching to LED is a no-brainer.
