Leicester City install new lighting system

Leicester City’s famous nights under the lights will be taken to a whole new level from the 2019/20 season, with the installation of a brand new state-of-the-art lighting system at King Power Stadium.

The latest in a series of upgrades to facilities on Filbert Way in recent years, the new system will put King Power Stadium’s pitch lighting on par with the world’s elite sporting venues – enhancing the match day experience for supporters in attendance and providing brilliant broadcast quality for the Premier League’s audience of billions around the world.

Final calibration and testing of the new system will take place in the week building up to the season curtain-raiser against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Sunday 11 August.

While installation of the permanent system is completed during the coming days, temporary floodlights were in operation for last Friday’s pre-season friendly against Atalanta.

Investment in top-of-the-range pitch lighting for 2019/20 follows the installation of two giant LED screens in the King Power Stadium bowl less than a year ago, shortly after a major renovation of the Foxes Fanstore in the summer of 2018.

As has been the case with the new screens, among the largest and most immersive in the Premier League, the new LED pitch lighting will add a new dimension to match day entertainment, with instant illumination creating the opportunity for lighting special effects ahead of matches after dark.
