Frequently Asked Questions
In conversations with customers, we asked them what questions they had about LED Soccer Field Lights. Here’s the list below. If you couldn’t find the answer, contact us at (888) 423-3191 and we’ll be happy to assist you.
How High Should You Mount LED Soccer Field Lights?
There is no one height we would recommend. But higher is better than lower. And closer to the field is better than far away. We have created lighting plans for many outdoor sports fields. And the pole heights have ranged between 30 feet and 75 feet.
Do Portable Lights Work Well for Soccer Fields?
They can. But they could be a source of glare if the source of light is not high enough. Understanding how these LED lights for soccer field work, and how each light needs to be aimed, creates a level of setup that is different from a fixed light source on a pole. So while they can work, it’s not ideal as a long-term solution.
How Does LED Lighting Supply’s LED Soccer Field Lights Compare To Musco Lighting?
Musco offers a very high-feature and performance system that you typically see in professional stadiums that can include specialized RGB lighting and sophisticated controls for the fixtures. The cost level is reflective of this advanced functionality.
In comparison, LED Lighting Supply primarily focuses on school and recreational soccer fields. We offer both cost-competitive and performance options for soccer fields that meet the needs of most schools and recreational applications.
How many Foot Candles do I need for a soccer field?
Recreational: 5-20 foot candles
Middle School: 20-30 foot candles
Small High School: 20-40 foot candles
Larger High School: 40-50 foot candles
College: 60-120 foot candles
BEFORE YOU BUY
How Many Lumens Do You Need to Light Up a Soccer Field?
Start with the amount of light you want (in terms of foot-candles). Create a lighting plan. The lighting plan will detail the number of lights, optics needed, and how powerful the lights need to be to meet your lighting requirements.
How Much Does LED Soccer Field Lighting Cost?
We have a high-power 200 Watt flood light that starts at $285.00. More powerful models are available if needed.
Are Flood lights or Stadium Lights Better for a Soccer Field?
We have found that high-power LED Flood Lights work well when they’re mounted relatively close to the field. If the lighting positions are far from the playing field, LED Stadium Lights are a better option. They have low-beam optic options like 10 and 15-degree optics.
What Beam Angle Is Best for LED Soccer Field Lights?
There is no one best beam angle, but there is the best beam angle for your soccer field. That is why we recommend creating a lighting plan. We can determine the specific types of lights needed. And the ideal beam angle to create balanced lighting.
Do These Fixtures Qualify for Rebates?
They can. But that has more to do with the utility company supplying the power than our lights. Most of our lights are DLC qualified. But it’s up to the utility company to offer the rebate, and that varies from company to company.
How Long Will LED Soccer Field Lights Last?
Since LED Soccer Field Lights aren’t used all the time, it’s not unreasonable to think they can last 20+ years.
Can You Provide a Lighting Layout for My Soccer Stadium?
Yes, we can. Contact us today and we will create a free lighting plan specific to your requirements.
How Can I Avoid the Long Start-Up Times That I Currently Have with Metal Halide?
LED Soccer Field Lights are instant on and instant off. So the light starts operating at full power within 1 second.
Are LED Soccer Lights Powerful Enough to Replace My Existing Lights, 1 for 1?
Yes, we can easily replace 400 Watt, 1000 Watt and even 2000 Watt metal halide.
How Many Lights Are Ideal for Soccer Field Lighting?
Every field is different and has specific requirements, but a standard 180 ft X 330 ft field may require at least 30 footcandles of horizontal illumination. To determine how many lights you need, we recommend starting off with a lighting plan.
How Do You Install LED lights for soccer field?
There is no difference between installing our lights and any traditional metal halide light. Other than the fact that our lights are more compact and should weigh less. We offer all the same mounting types and hardware as older traditional lights. And there are only 3 wires to connect to the electrical service.
How Can We Get Rid of the Shadows on Our Field?
The goal with good lighting design is to have enough light so that every part of the field is ‘touched’ with light. It is better to use 2 smaller powered lights than 1 large more powerful light. The latter scenario will create a bright area, then shadows until the next light’s bright area.
