Are large operational groups with multiple stadia and arenas in their portfolios doing enough to address sustainability issues, or should the onus lie with individual venues to reduce their environmental footprint?

Lighting system from Osram installed at new 1. FC Hochstadt pitch

Osram Lighting Solutions has planned and implemented new pitch lighting for German soccer club 1. FC Hochstadt. An installation of 12 Siteco LED floodlights bathe the club’s new, FIFA-certified artificial turf in efficient and high-performance light.

Under the leadership of the chairman, Manfred Maier, and with the contribution of several club members, the soccer club drew up a concept for new playing field lighting and called on the specialists from Osram Lighting Solutions for subsequent planning. The aim was to ensure that the lighting complies with higher requirements in terms of efficiency and quality of light and that it also reflects the modern outlook of the club and its new FIFA 2-star certified artificial turf. Strabag Sportstättenbau was commissioned as general contractor for the project, Osram technology and expertise was sourced for lighting design and planning, and FSB Beling installed and started up the luminaires.

The new pitch lighting consists of 12 Siteco Floodlight 20 Maxi LED units with two different light distributions. These achieve not only high lighting levels of approximately 110 lx and high uniformity with a correlation coefficient of 0.78, but also convincing results in terms of energy savings and cost efficiency. In agreement with the client, the lighting system was designed to enable the two halves of the pitch to be separately switched. It is also possible to operate the system across the whole pitch, or selectively at half illuminance level – useful during, for example, training activities or other low-light tasks.
