Thanks to LEDs, football has become a spectacular light show as much as a display of sporting talent. In the past, lighting was switched on an hour before kick-off and took at least 30 minutes to warm. Today’s LED lighting is instantaneous. The main driver for clubs to switch to LED is compliance with the latest standards demanded by TV broadcasters and football federations. Only the highest quality lighting enables TV cameras to capture those amazing flicker-free super slow-motion action replays – where every bead of sweat and strained sinew is broadcast in glorious 4K ultra-high definition. The ability to use the lighting in pre-match light shows is a huge added bonus – afforded by the ability to program individual LED lights to turn on and off rapidly, vary their intensity and sync them to music. In a few short years, such entertainment has reached new heights of sophistication as top clubs vie with each other to produce the most spectacular light show.
