Arsenal Football Club has selected Musco Lighting to install new LED floodlights at Emirates Stadium in time for next season.
As the third largest football stadium in England – with a capacity over 60,000 – Emirates Stadium needed a lighting provider that shared a mutual commitment in providing a superior player and fan experience. After a comprehensive evaluation process of floodlighting manufacturers, Musco – a global leader in sports lighting – was chosen as the ideal partner for this project, with nearly 40 years of experience lighting some of the world’s premier facilities.
Arsenal’s Stadium and Facilities Director, John Beattie, said:
We have been in Emirates Stadium for nine seasons and need to ensure we have the best possible conditions for players and fans for the future. Musco’s proposal meets our needs for top quality lighting within the ground on matchdays and varied in-stadia events.
Installation of the new floodlighting system will be undertaken during the summer and will be ready to be switched on for the start of the 2015/16 season. Emirates Stadium will join a long list of facilities around the world to benefit from Musco’s state-of-the-art LED lighting solution, including the world’s largest rugby venue, Twickenham Stadium, the Houston Texans’ NRG Stadium, the Denver Broncos Field House, and the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center.
Jeff Rogers, President of Musco World, said:
We are proud to have been selected by Arsenal Football Club to relight the iconic Emirates Stadium. The new, efficient LED system will help Arsenal FC offer a truly unique environment for the world’s top athletes.
