Stadium Lights

Our LED stadium lights are designed for high-power illumination at a cost-effective price. These powerful field lights emit light in a wide, bright flood beam to enhance visibility for both players and spectators. Compared to their metal halide replacements, LED stadium light fixtures last significantly longer and light up instantly. New LED technology also helps reduce the maintenance and replacement costs associated with traditional stadium lighting. Use our advanced outdoor stadium lighting for a variety of venues- soccer stadiums, football fields, baseball stadiums, athletic fields, racetracks, outdoor basketball courts, track and field arenas, and other sports fields. We offer various beam angle optics to best fit your intended application.

This product has been certified by Underwriter Laboratories to their engineering and safety standards.
This product meets higher lumen and efficacy standards than are required for a normal DLC® classification. This classification also requires submission of a driver IN-SITU temperature measurement test (ISTMT) along with information regarding integral controls.

How Bright Do You Need Your Stadium Lights To Be?

The brightness of your stadium lighting varies greatly depending on the size and type of the stadium. The IES (Illuminating Engineering Society of North America) has published recommended stadium light illuminance based on the sports facility classification.

  • Class I Facilities: Venues with a spectator capacity of over 5,000
  • Class II Facilities: Venues with a spectator capacity under 5,000
  • Class III Facilities: Venues with some provision for spectators
  • Class IV Facilities: Venues with limited or no provision for spectators

Below is a list of recommended footcandles (fc) for a variety of sports and facility classes. A footcandle represents the amount of light that illuminates a one square foot area from a single candle one foot away. The more footcandles, the more intense the light is. For smaller venues, the recommended footcandle amount typically ranges from 20-50 fc. However, for larger stadiums, this requirement increases to 50-100 fc since the fixtures are typically mounted farther away from the field and must cover a greater area.

1 fc = 10.76 lm

You should also take into account the horizontal illuminance (Eh) and the vertical illuminance (Ev) of your stadium lights. Horizontal illuminance measures the amount of light falling on a horizontal surface, such as a field, court, or track. Vertical illuminance, on the other hand, measures the amount of light falling on a vertical surface, like participants or playing objects. The recommended horizontal and vertical footcandles may vary based on the sport type, field size, specific location within the field, and whether broadcasts may occur.


Applications for Stadium Lights

Stadium lights are ideal for use in outdoor sporting events, including soccer stadiums, football fields, baseball stadiums, athletic fields, racetracks, basketball courts, tennis courts, and track and field arenas. In addition to sports stadiums, these lights can be used for outdoor concert venues, race tracks, and other large outdoor areas. 

 

Stadium lights can also be used in a variety of indoor settings such as indoor theaters, newsrooms, broadcasting rooms, and for indoor sports. Light fixtures with advanced LED technology are equipped with efficient heat sinks for greater heat dissipation, so you don’t have to worry about your lights overheating as long as they are in low-temperature indoor environments.


Recommended Placement for Stadium Lighting

A well-thought-out stadium light placement should focus on achieving uniform illumination with minimal glare and shadows. This placement will depend on a few important factors. 

  • The shape and size of the field
  • The type of sport
  • The beam angle of the stadium lights
  • The number of lighting poles

Differently shaped sports fields will require unique light placements to create a uniform lighting distribution. For example, the approach to lighting a baseball field is different from that of lighting a soccer field due to the differently shaped fields. The IES also recommends different design factors depending on whether the sport is a ground-based sport like soccer or wrestling vs if it is an aerial sport, like baseball or volleyball. Ground-based sports require a greater horizontal illuminance to help spectators see the action on the field. Lighting for aerial sports, however, is necessary for both spectators and participants to see any playing object in the air. Aerial sports use a combination of vertical and horizontal illuminance to achieve this. Lights should not be placed in glare zones for aerial sports. 

 

The beam angle of a light fixture determines how widely or narrowly the light is spread out from the source. A wide beam angle can cover a larger area but may need to be mounted closer to the field. This makes wider beam angles of 45-60 degrees suitable for general area lighting and for use with shorter mounting poles. Narrow beam angles, typically around 15-30 degrees, focus the light to deliver higher-intensity illumination over specific locations like the pitch, court, or field. Field lights with narrower beams can be mounted from higher mounting points farther away from the field.

 

The number of mounting poles used to light up a stadium can have an effect on the type of beam angles needed for stadium lighting. Fields that have fewer poles, such as a 4-pole layout, may require stadium lights with a wider beam angle to make sure there is ample lighting in the stadium. Venues using an 8-pole layout may only need lights with a narrow beam angle since there are a greater number of locations where the light will come from. The individual fixtures mounted on a pole might also have different beam angles to direct light on different parts of the field. 


Importance of Advanced Optics

Advanced optics are essential in sports lighting, as they precisely direct light to make your lights more efficient. This helps enhance visual comfort for participants and spectators by reducing glare, minimizing bright spots, and focusing the light on specific areas around the playing field. An added benefit of advanced optics is that they reduce light pollution for sports fields in populated areas that must meet light cutoff requirements. There are two main types of LED advanced optics: single glass and secondary optics. Single glass optics employ a single-piece glass lens that covers the entirety of the LED pane to produce a consistent beam, whereas secondary optics use PC lenses to focus the beam angle of each individual LED chip to change the overall beam angle of the entire fixture. Our LED stadium lights from Sportsbeams are equipped with glare-reducing single-glass optics, and our own line of stadium lights features innovative secondary optics.


Are LED Stadium Lights Suitable for High-Definition Broadcasting?

Yes, certain LED stadium lights are suitable for high-definition broadcasting. The best broadcast lighting comes from flicker-free LED light fixtures with a high TLCI value. TLCI, or Television Lighting Consistency Index, is a measure designed to evaluate the color rendering quality of lights used in television production. It indicates how well a light source will allow colors to appear on camera, which is vital for HD broadcasts. LEDs also offer the advantage of instant On/Off capabilities and easy dimming, which is beneficial for certain broadcast lighting scenarios. Our line of Sportsbeams stadium lights are designed for high-quality broadcasts and feature a high TLCI.


Differences Between LEDs and Metal Halide Stadium Light Fixtures

There are several differences between LEDs and traditional metal halide fixtures. Metal halides, while cheaper initially, have higher operational costs over time due to their energy consumption and frequent maintenance requirements. LEDs are more energy-efficient, have a significantly longer lifespan, produce less heat, and offer a wider variety of light outputs. They also light up instantly, whereas metal halides require a warm-up period. LEDs also typically provide better color rendering and more advanced light distribution, which is crucial for high-quality broadcasts.

 

You can use fewer LED sports lights than metal halides. Because of their high lumen output, certain LED fixtures can replace two metal halide lights. However, keep in mind that LED stadium lights are heavier than metal halide stadium lights. This makes them ideal for new construction builds where compatible mounting poles can be chosen. If you are replacing metal halides with LEDs, you may need to take into account the weight difference to make sure your poles can handle a heavier load.
