Soccer Field LED Lighting

Meeting Australian Standards: AS2560.2.3

When lighting a soccer field, it is important to ensure you meet the Australian Standards not only for the minimum average lux required but also for uniformity, glare, and spill lighting.
High-quality LED lighting can make a significant difference to the overall playing experience and visual comfort.

The Australian Standards for football lighting are AS2560.2.3 which identifies three main levels of lighting for soccer based on the level of play.

These are typically recreational, club level, and amateur. If you expect to progress from one level to the next in the foreseeable future, ensure that the poles and lighting set-up is designed to accommodate extra lighting, so a complete overhaul is not necessary when you decide to upgrade.

Important Points to Check When Upgrading Your Soccer Field Lighting

Here are some of the frequently asked questions and answers about upgrading to LED lighting.
Are your existing poles up to handle the weight? If not, choose your lights with care to make sure they are the same or similar to the lamps being replaced.
If replacing the poles, ensure the installation is in accordance with council requirements and look into the warranties.
Have you checked existing lux levels and cross referenced the new plan to see what advantage there will be?
Has the lighting supplier proved that the uniformity and lighting levels will comply with the standards?
Have you achieved a power-usage advantage or would staying with your old MH fittings be more economical?
