Detroit Lions install new LED lighting system for Ford Field

Musco technology meets requirements of the 65,000-seat, multipurpose sports stadium, as well as reducing energy requirements

 

Ford Field, home of the Detroit Lions, has unveiled an energy-efficient LED lighting system provided by Musco Lighting.

“The new LED lighting at Ford Field not only improves the guest experience in terms of clearer sightlines, but allows for greater lighting flexibility for all stadium events,” said Todd Argust, Detroit Lions vice president of operations. “Additionally, the new system uses a third of the energy in comparison with the previous lighting.”

Ford Field opened its doors in 2002 as a multipurpose venue used for Lions home games, concerts and premier sporting events ranging from the Super Bowl to hosting college hockey’s Frozen Four and college basketball’s Final Four.

The venue needed a solution that had the customization to meet the unique needs of all events, while reducing energy consumption, improving light quality and enhancing the entertainment experience at the stadium.

Those needs will be met with several benefits offered with the installation of Musco’s SportsCluster Green LED system. These include: visibility, with precisely delivered and controlled light on the field with customized optics, preventing light from shining into the eyes of players and spectators; interface with a DMX control board for special effects to provide fans with the latest in sports lighting entertainment; efficient controls, which provide instant on/off capabilities and dimming controls for the light output to be adjusted when full power of the system is not required; and superior broadcasts with elimination of the flicker effect during slow-motion replay.

The system will reduce energy consumption at Ford Field by 62% compared with the prior lighting equipment when operated at full power. This will allow the venue to cut CO₂ emissions by 4,539 metric tons over the next decade. And with a 10-year long-term parts and labor warranty backed by a team of technicians, maintenance costs are eliminated. This will reduce operating costs at Ford Field by US$1.2m over the next decade.

“The new lighting system at Ford Field represents 40 years of continued innovation in sports lighting,” said Jeff Rogers, vice president, Musco Lighting. “We’re proud to continue our partnership with the Detroit Lions and look forward to seeing the benefits that the new system will bring to the team.”

Ford Fields joins a lengthy list of venues around the world that feature a state-of-the-art LED lighting solution provided by the company. The list includes the Detroit Pistons’s Palace of Auburn Hills, the Dallas Cowboys’ AT&T Stadium, and Arsenal Football Club’s Emirates Stadium.
