A lighting layout for a soccer field is a software-generated lighting report. It models the physical layout of an indoor or outdoor soccer field. For outdoor soccer fields, it uses existing pole locations or suggests new fields. It shows light locations with aiming points and shows both foot candle readings and light balance on the field.

For indoor soccer fields, it shows roof-mounted light locations or uses your existing light locations. It provides the same light levels and balance readings based on the physical location of the fixtures.

First, we have to specify how much light is required. Then, the process begins by selecting the appropriate light fixtures and optic packages. We ensure the light is balanced across the space. Both need to be achieved for the design to be considered a success.

It depends on the level of competition and the sports activity that happens on the field. College soccer lighting standards will be brighter than recreational-based community fields. In the USA, soccer lighting requirements are like football field requirements.

  • 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 or Competition Level: 60-120 foot candles

There is quite a range, depending on the level of play. For recreational fields, on the lower end, a range of 5 to 20 lumens per square foot is the target range. On the upper end, 60 to 120 lumens per square foot is your target range.

We have many high power LED lights for soccer fields and lighting fixtures that are powerful enough to provide the lumen output and lighting uniformity. These LED Lights have been used to light up many sports fields like baseball, softball, and football pitches. Our lighting can easily replace up to 2000 Watt Metal Halide.

They don’t differ that much. Indoor fields are ceiling-mounted lights and outdoor fields are pole-mounted lights. Of the two, the indoor soccer field is simpler to model out. Providing balanced lighting over the entire field is easier when LED fixtures as part of a lighting system are mounted as high as possible.
