Perth Stadium to be illuminated with the biggest LED sports lighting system in the world

Night-time events held at Perth Stadium in Australia will be illuminated through the biggest LED sports lighting system in the world. Over 15,000 LED lights will be installed across the Stadium and Sports Precinct.

Western Australian Premier Colin Barnett said the unparalleled lighting system included 15,000 LED lights and was already used in stadia around the world, albeit on a smaller scale.

“This lighting system is another world-class design feature, allowing visually stunning light shows to be created inside and outside of the stadium,” said Barnett. “Perth Stadium will truly change the spectator experience and every design decision has always had the fans and their experience at the core.

“This lighting system will interact with the fabric roof lighting system, allowing the roof to act as a giant canvas, capable of showcasing a variety of colors in numerous configurations such as purple for Dockers games and blue and gold for Eagles home games.”

The lighting system is designed and supplied by global lighting company Philips Lighting. Once installed, it will be the biggest LED sports lighting installation of its kind in the world, providing a lighting solution that is adaptable to specific requirements of sporting codes and other events.

Several major European stadia already use the same Philips Lighting system, but on a smaller scale, including Stamford Bridge in London, UK, and Juventus Stadium in Turin, Italy.

Western Australia sport and recreation minister Mia Davies said stadium construction was progressing well and remained on track for completion ahead of the 2018 AFL season: “We are currently just over 70% complete and by the end of the year, the stadium structure and its surrounding parkland precinct will be complete and an extensive testing and commission phase will be undertaken. It will not be long before 60,000 fans are here cheering on their favorite sport and entertainment acts.”

The construction focus is currently on the internal fit-out and the site workforce is more than 800. Nearly 80% of stadium subcontracts awarded to date have been to Western Australia companies, which is having positive flow-on effects to the local economy.

The unique aluminum façade is nearing completion and 40% of the 60,000 seats are in place.

The lighting system was procured by Westadium which is responsible for the design, build, partial finance and maintenance elements of the stadium and sports precinct. Installation of the 15,000 LED light fittings will be completed by mid 2017.
