Football Lighting: LED Floodlight Design, Installation & Repair

Floodlighting of football pitches is really important. We understand that the right lighting allows your pitches to be used more frequently for matches & training. As most recreational football takes place after work, it may allow you to support more players & teams. There may even be the opportunity to increase revenue by allowing other activities to take place at your ground.

Working with leading lighting engineers, we can design & install efficient & flexible lighting schemes that allow teams to use your facilities throughout the year & meet the requirements of the SFA. We are able to work with grounds that need lighting for televised matches & occasional lighting for community clubs, universities & schools etc.

Our services include upgrading traditional metal halide floodlights to LEDs & integrating smart controls. Finally, when lights stop working, our floodlight repair service can ensure play goes on.

    Clubs are required to have a floodlight system at the ground.

    The following minimum levels apply:

    Min/Max – 0.4

    In the case of a Platinum Award, the floodlighting lux level is required to be:
    Average – 1200 lux
    Min/Max – 0.45

    Furthermore to meet the Platinum standard the club will be able to provide a backup power supply which will provide two-thirds of normal power.
