Football Field Lighting Design Guide

The basic dimensions of football fields are generally divided into the following types:

The length of the 11-person football field is 90-120 meters and the width is 45-90 meters;

The standard dimensions of international competitions are 105-110 meters in length and 68-75 meters in width;

Depending on the type and size of the football field, the height of the football field light poles also needs to change accordingly. The angle between the midpoint of the field and the lower edge of the spotlight must not be less than 25 degrees. Note: In order to protect the safety of the players, no lighting facilities or buildings shall be installed within 5 meters outside the perimeter of the field. If your football field is not a standard size, please let us know.

Lighting arrangement

LED floodlights are generally installed around the edge structure of the pitch roof, but some football fields have lamps installed on poles/towers around the pitch. FIFA has detailed requirements for this, including indoor edge lights, lamps behind the goal line, lamp focus points, column positions, etc.

Football field lighting standards

Football field lighting must meet the needs of audio-visual media, spectators, professional football players and referees. Its lighting requirements depend on whether the field is used for competition or training, whether the competition is domestic or international, whether it is televised, etc.

Based on these, there are many different levels and different parameters. Let's take a look at the main types of football field lighting and the characteristics they need to have.

FIFA: Televised events (Em ≥ 1,500–2,000 lx / uniformity ≥ 0.7). CRI80, CCT 5000-6200K

Level 1: World Cup training or small games (Em ≥ 750 lx / uniformity ≥ 0.6). CRI80, CCT 5000-6200K, non-televised matches.

Level 2: Match practice (Em ≥ 500 lx / Uniformity ≥ 0.6). CRI70, CCT 5000-6200K

Level 3: Standard training purposes (Em ≥ 300 lx / Uniformity ≥ 0.6). CRI70, CCT 4200-6200K
