Indoors, even bright retail lighting, which may be used within 100-200lux of a department store or car showroom, is still far less the brightness of an MLB baseball infield. LED stadium lighting is a growing trend and sports organizations such as FIFA and the premier league have started to use it for many of their events and stadiums, so that the athletes on the field to play the maximum strength and the spectators can enjoy the best visual experience on the competition.
