As one of the most popular sports in the world, football game has driven the construction and upgrading of series of football stadiums. The main facility is the football stadium lights and high masts.
As a professional led stadium lighting manufacturers, Mecree can provide professional one-stop services, including football stadium lights and high masts supporting services. Let’s explore more info about football stadium lights and high masts pole.
Section 1: How much do football stadium lights cost?
When comparing the total cost of fooball project, we should consider the entire combination of football stadium cost. It includes football stadium lights price, installation cost , electricity bill and maintenance cost.
1)What are football stadium lights price?
The price is different on the market and there is no standard. It depends on the quality and types of football field lights.
For a standard football stadium, Led 1000w stadium lights can replace 2000w metal Halide lamp directly. The average purchase price of Led stadium lights 1000w is $USD680, and $USD60 for MH lamp. We can easily find that the Led football stadium lights price is more expensive than traditional metal halide lamps, why more than 85% people still choose to replace MH lamp with Led stadium lights? Let’s see:
2)What is the installation cost of football floodlights?
The average installation cost of the indoor arena ranges from US$70,000 to US$79,134, and the average cost of the outdoor stadium ranges from US$79,134 to US$2,458,17. The price is not fixed, it also depends on the football stadium lighting standard and types of lights.
For a typical high school football stadium, about 20pcs Led stadium flood lights 1000w can reach around 300lx, if install metal halides, it needs at least 40pcs 2000w MH lamp, so the weight and numbers are increased. There will have the cost of reinforcing the light pole. In fact, the reinforcement cost of the pole is 2.5 times of the football stadium lights cost itself.
This is just based on one high mast, let alone the installation cost of whole stadium. So Led stadium lights can save at least 10 times than MH lamp compared with installation cost.
3)What is the electricity bill of stadium lights cost?
Nowadays, most of us may attach great importance on energy consumption and carbon dioxide emissions. Therefore, the electricity bill we need to pay for football stadium floodlights are always the most important issues for football stadiums.
We still take the typical high school pitch as an example, (20pcs Led 1000w football pitch lights can replace 40pcs MH 2000w ). If they operate 8 hrs per day and 30 days a month, the average electricity cost in the USA is about $0.12 kW/hour, so the electricity charges of high school pitch is:
|Type of Lights||Led Football Stadium Lights||Metal Halide Football Stadium Lights|
|20,000 (20*1000w=20,000w)||80,000 (40*2000w=80,000w)|
|Electricity Saved with Led lights (USD)||$20,736
We will find that LED football field lights can save us $20,736 electricity costs every year! It saved at least 70% electricity bill than traditional MH lamp.
There are three famous stadium:
MetLife Stadium, M&T Bank Stadium, and Mercedes-Benz Stadium, they saved more than energy and the electricity bill were reduced by 5 million kilowatt-hours from 2012-2020 of each stadium—equals to energy used for heating 440 homes for all year, around 900,000US dollars were saved each stadium per year.
4)How much will cost you to maintain?
It is Vexatious that we have to maintain or replace the ballast of Metal Halide lamp frequently per year. The stadium high masts are 30-40m even higher usually, we have to find the crane to put the lamp pole down and replace the stadium lights. In fact, it is very difficult to hire a crane, and also destructive to the stadium. Plus the high expenses of labor cost, the maintenance cost may be more than 5 times that of the lamp itself.
The lifespan of Led football stadium lights are more than 10 times longer than MH lamp. Professional Led stadium lights can last for more than 28 years based on 8hrs operating per day. There is zero maintenance cost required with Led floodlights. While the traditional lamp have to maintain so frequently each year, will you still think that LED stadium lights are more expensive than traditional lamps?
Section 2: Why Led stadium replace MH lamp?
Let’s check the table, you will find the reason more intuitively.
|Topic||Metal Halide Lamp||Led Football Stadium Lights||Winner|
|Warm-up Time||15-20 minutes||No warm-up time.||Led|
(The higher the CRI, the better the color rendering ability )
|Light Efficiency (lm/w)||65-85lm/w||150-200lm/w||Led|
（Main factor affects lifespan ）
|Lifetime Costs||High maintenance cost of frequently repairing each year||No maintenance cost||Led|
|Optical design||>40% spilled lighting wasted in the sky||>98% lighting is made full use to the field||Led|
|Energy Saving||2000w MH lamp is 130,000-170,000lm||Led 1000w has 150,000lm,||Led|
|Warranty||<2 years||>5 -10 years||Led|
There is no uniform price for the stadium lights cost, but we can see that the total cost of high-quality Led lights is at least 10 times cheaper than traditional MH lights, and the lifespan is 10 times longer, so the satisfaction of users will be higher.

Section 3：High masts supporting services
Stadium lights and high masts are the main facilities of football stadiums. When we replace stadium lamps, many old light poles also need to be replaced. If the lights and light poles can be provided together, it is very convenient for users and reduces theirs risks and time cost of finding more manufacturers.
1)Security is the main factor when replacing light pole
Replacing a high masts is not a simple thing, we should consider many factors to ensure the security of the high masts. Here sharing the true accident with you.
A football stadium high mast were fell down suddenly during the football game in Saturday at in Clarksville, Arkansas, it hit three players, and broken the legs of the referee. It is certain that more people almost to be killed if the poles fell one or two seconds later. The final investigation was because of the unreasonable design of the high masts and couldn’t bear the wind speed 35m/s that day.
Therefore, we should focus not only on the price but also the security of high masts.
