Soccer is an ancient sport with a long history. It originated from an ancient Chinese ball game called Cuju, which later spread to Europe through the Arabs and became modern football. Do you know you want to know more about the lighting of the soccer field?
The lighting standards of the soccer field
The professional competition requires 5600 Kelvin of correlated color temperature, which is close to the sun’s temperature of 5700K. Commercial LED lighting typically measures around 5000K, making them the closest lights to replicating the sun’s natural color temperature. Current sports field lighting standards include:
250 foot candles for Professional Competition
150 foot candles for college level soccer
50 foot candles for high school soccer fields
The LED provides fans and athletes with a superior lighting experience. Indoor soccer division lighting and outdoor soccer field lighting, installing lights in different places is not the same way. Standards should be based on the use of the function to determine the standard lighting of the football field, divided into seven levels, training and entertainment lighting 200lx, amateur 500lx, professional game 750lx, general TV broadcast 1000lx, major international competitions HD TV 1400lx, emergency TV 750lx.
IES Sports Lighting Levels
The Illuminating Engineering Society published “Sports and Recreation Area Lighting” to highlight optimal levels of sports lighting. The full document discusses the best standards for athletes and spectators. LED, metal halide, fluorescent and even plasma lighting solutions are tested.
The IES highlights the energy efficiency of LEDs, despite having higher initial costs. LED benefits also include advanced beam control and less light spill and pollution than its competitors.
