Football field lighting design is the process of using software to model lighting within a new or existing football stadium or field. The software allows us to use different lighting options to determine which particular light provides the best overall result, meeting the foot candle requirements of the customer. It also ensures that the design provides balanced lighting across the entire field, so players aren’t experiencing overly bright or underlit areas.

Creating a lighting plan takes away most if not all, risks of adding or changing out lights on the football field. The plan will show you where the lights and lighting system should be installed, where they should be aimed, and calculate the light levels on the field. It will also show you how well the light is balanced, from end-zone to end-zone. In this way, the proper light, with the best optic, can be discovered inside the software, without you spending $1 to figure out what type of light you need.

The ideal lighting layout shows you where all the lights are installed, where they are aimed, and how bright and balanced the field will be if you use the lights we recommend in the plan.

It depends on the level of play.

Here is what we would recommend for the following levels of football play and professional stadium pitch lighting.

  • Recreational Football: 20 foot candles
  • Middle School: 30 foot candles
  • High School: 30-40 foot candles
  • Pro Level High School: 50 foot candles
  • College: 60-150 foot candles

There are many benefits to using LED Stadium lights. LED Lights, using high-quality LED chips, excel in high light efficiency and energy saving. When LED is used as football field lights instead of older HID technology, the results are outstanding. A combination of beam angle and symmetrical and asymmetrical optics, these lights provide a significant upgrade over old-style Metal Halide lamps. So whether you are looking for lighting for a high school football grounds, college football club, or outdoor football stadiums, starting with a football field lighting design is the best way to start the process.
