What Type of Fixtures Do You Use for Football Lighting?

We use a combination of high power flood lights and stadium lights. The lights we use depend completely on the lighting requirements of the specific football field we are asked to light up.

How Many Watts Are Football Stadium Lights?

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

How Do You Light Up a Football Scoreboard?

Lighting a score board is similar to lighting up a billboard. Depending on where the mounting locations are, you can either use a billboard light or wide beam flood lights.

What Light Level Is Needed for a College Level Football Stadium?

Depending on the division, the light levels for college football fields fall into a range of 80 to 150 foot candles.

What Light Level Is Needed for a High School Football Field?

Depending on the size of the school and size of their football program, high school football fields require 30 to 60 foot candles (more if the games are televised).

 Light Levels for Football Fields

Location Ideal Light Levels
Recreational Football 20 foot candles
Middle School 30 foot candles
Small High School 30 foot candles
Larger High School 50 foot candles
College 80-150 foot candles

What Light Level Is Needed for a Professional Level Football Stadium?

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

How Much Does Lighting for a Football Stadium Cost?

It all depends on the lighting requirements and the number of lights required. We have 200 Watt lights that start at $285.00.

Does the Lighting Level Differ Between Football Stadiums and Football Fields?

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

Do You Offer Discounts for Pop Warner and Other Youth Teams?

We do offer bulk discounts. Call us and tell us your needs and we will work hard to work within your budget.

What Are the Lighting Requirements for a High School Football Field?

The lighting requirements for a high school football field vary depending on the size of the school and the budgets. However, 30-80 foot candles are the most typically required light levels.

What Is the Best LED Light to Replace 1000 Watt Metal Halide Lights at a Football Stadium?

We have many options, but the best light depends on the pole placement, mounting height and the overall lighting requirements. Creating a lighting plan specifically for your field is a process we use to find the best lighting solution for your needs and budget.


The Current Metal Halide Lights on My Field Take Forever to Light In. Are LED Fixtures Instant On and Off?

That’s one of the benefits of LEDs over metal halide lights - they are instant on and instant off. There is no need to turn the lights on 30 minutes before they are needed.

Do the Fixtures Support 277 to 480 Volt Systems?

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

Can a Frosted Lens Be Used to Reduce Glare on the Field?

Yes and no. While it will reduce glare, many times we need to use optics to narrow down the beam to light up specific locations on the field. We do not offer frosted optics to do this. But with the optics, they are targeted towards a location on the field and reduce the glare to the sides.


How High Should Football Field Lights Be Mounted?

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 perfectly well for your field.

Can the Drivers Be Installed on the Ground Away from the Fixtures?

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

How Much Does It Cost to Install 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 typically replace a light in less than 30-60 minutes. Aiming the lights can take a bit longer, but using a laser pointer and adding flags to the field where the light is intended to hit helps make this process simpler. If you need a full estimate, we recommend you consult with a local electrician.

Can We Just Use 1 Pole and Flood the Area with Less Fixtures?

That would be hard to do. At a minimum, we like to see at least 4 poles.

LED Football Field Lighting Plans

They allow you to see your area and how it would look under LED Lighting taking the risk out of buying. We run different options with our lights, and provide you with the proper guidance. We're here to save you money with LED. But it's as important to get the lighting right.

With an increase in light quality, visibility becomes better. This will improve the football field lighting design alone. This improved field lighting design creates better safety for both the players and visitors. If the players can see better, they can avoid potentially hazardous situations. For visitors, they can feel safe knowing who is around them when headed back to their cars.
