What are Football Field Lights?

As the name suggests, football field lighting is a sports light fixture designed to light up a football field. Typically,  football LED fixtures are installed at 70 ft high, football field lights can often go as high as 250 ft for professional football stadiums.

Most Common Types of LED Football Field Lighting

We use a combination of high-power flood lighting and stadium lighting. The lights we use depend completely on the requirements of the specific football field. A lighting plan will sort that out quickly.

How Powerful are LED Football Field Lights?

If you have 1000 Watt metal halide lights, expect the LED replacement to be between 400 Watts and 600 Watts. A lot of times, fields are underlit. So using a more powerful LED light can provide both better lighting and energy savings.

We also have lights that can easily replace 1500 Watts and 2000 Watts Metal Halide

How to Light up a Football Scoreboard

Lighting a scoreboard is like lighting up a billboard. Depending on where the lights mount, you can either use a billboard light or wide beam flood lights.

Light Levels Needed for College Football Field

Depending on the school division, light levels for college football fields range between 80 to 150-foot candles.

Light Levels Needed for High School Football Field

That depends on the size of the school and the size of its football program. High school football fields need 30 to 60-foot candles.

Light Levels Needed for Professional Football Facility

Lighting up a professional field usually means light levels exceeding 200-foot candles. You also have to consider vertical foot candles, as the ball needs to be lit up as it travels through the air.

Cost of LED Lighting for a Football Field

It all depends on the lighting requirements and the number of lights required. We have 200 Watt lights that are budget-friendly.

Lighting Level Differs for Football Stadiums vs Football Fields

This depends mostly on the level of football played. NFL requirements for televised football games are higher than a high school football field. In the past, we have created lighting plans for college-level fields and high-school fields.

Instant Lighting when Turning On LED Sports Lights

That’s one of the benefits of LED Football Field Lights. They are instant on and instant off. There is no need to turn the lights on 30 minutes before they’re needed. Metal halide lamps have a very long strike time.

Best Height to Mount LED Football Field Lights

There is no one standard height. But higher is better than lower as it helps improve light balance across the field. If you already have existing poles, don’t worry. We can create a lighting plan and suggest lights that will work well for your field.

Can You Install Drivers on the Ground Away from the Fixtures?

We do have remote driver options if that’s what you need. Contact a lighting expert at LED Lighting Supply for help.

How Does LED Lighting Supply’s LED Football Field Lights Compare to Musco Lighting?

Musco offers a very high-feature and performance system that you typically see in professional fields that can include specialized RGB lighting and sophisticated controls for the fixtures and lighting system. The cost level is reflective of this advanced functionality.

In comparison, LED Lighting Supply primarily focuses on school and recreational football fields. We offer both cost-competitive and performance options for football fields that meet the needs of most schools and recreational applications.

There are many benefits including less energy consumption, uniform lighting, increased service life over metal halide lamps, high CRI (color rendering index), multiple beam angles, lowered maintenance costs, and high-efficiency uniform illumination.

Best LED Football Lights to Replace 1000-Watt Metal Halide

We have many options. The best light depends on the pole placement, mounting height, and lighting requirements. Start by having us create a lighting plan for your field. It’s a process we use to find the best lighting solution for your needs and budget.

Best Way to Reduce Glare from Lighting on a Football Field

We recommend using side shields. This will cut back a lot of the glare produced by the powerful LED Sports Lights.

High Voltage 100v to 480v LED Lighting

We do offer both standard 100-277V and 277-480V driver options for our field lights. Let us know if you need high-voltage fixtures.

Cost to Install LED Football Field Lights

This varies from field to field and the requirements of how easy it is to get to the lights on the field. An electrician can replace a light in less than 30-60 minutes. Aiming the lights can take a bit longer.

The first step is to add flags to the field as light aiming points. Use a laser pointer to aim the lights at these flags. If you need a full estimate, we recommend you consult with a local electrician.
