We supply lighting systems for cricket field and stadium. The ideal alternative to halogen, mercury, and metal halide lighting is LED since it is brighter, more energy-efficient, and more long-lasting.To design a professional lighting for cricket fields, we may need a lighting system with an output of up to 50 000 to 80 000 watts, which costs between $75 000 and $100 000.

For sporting events, athletes, and spectators, a strong lighting plan is essential. Cricket stadiums typically have illumination all around the elliptical turf area. High power, high mast LED that can travel a great distance are required to offer sufficient illumination. Since we are the manufacturer, we can provide outdoor flood lights with low prices for cricket grounds, lowering your entire cost.

Lighting Requirements for Cricket Stadiums

The cricket field has severe lighting needs. The required light brightness varies depending on the type of cricket venue. According to the cricket lighting compatibility guidelines, the lux value will often be higher if the cricket court is used for international matches.

The required Lux level (Brightness)

We require 250–350 lux for general practice and leisure cricket venues, which is adequate for players to engage in light rivalry among team members. For professional matches, 500 to 750 lux is required. The movement is more ferocious, hence the brightness is higher. The cricket players are energized by high intensity illumination, which improves their performance. It requires the greatest grade of 1500 to 2500 lux for the cricket stadium hosting an international television tournament. It does so because it offers a clearer atmosphere for taking photos and videos.

Total power for cricket field lighting

The cricket field has a radius of roughly 70 meters, hence its area is 15,400 m². In order to get 750 lux (professional matches), we’ll need 15400 x 750 = 11550000 lumens. The minimum power required is 11550000 / 150 = 77000 watts because our LED lights produce 150 lumens per watt. Only a preliminary computation has been made.

How to design LED lighting for cricket fields & stadium(5)

Cricket Stadium Lighting Design

We require accurate and attractive photometric analysis in order to improve our chances of winning the cricket ground lighting tenders. Yibai LED Lighting has 12 years of experience managing stadium and sports lighting projects. We assist our clients in winning a variety of sports lighting competitions, including football, rugby, tennis, badminton, and others.

You can also get isolines chart for the cricket field from several designers. Usually the value chart shows the dispersion of lux levels. It is a professional sports field for the international competition since the light level is between 2000 and 3000 lux. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us if you want to acquire the analysis report for your project.

Professional cricket field lighting fixtures

Individual 5W LED chips are used in our LED cricket lights. They have a 210 lm/W luminance efficiency. By contrasting it with metal halide, about 70 lm/W is what MH has. At least 75% of energy and electricity costs are saved. In order to create a focused lighting beam on turf, we utilized the most recent chips. Additionally, our engineers will fine-tune the optics. Cricket field lighting are altered, and each case will be different. Taking the power, beam angle, and anti-glare systems as examples.

Indoor cricket court lighting

In addition to outdoor sports fields, we also provide lighting for indoor cricket courts. Ceiling lights used inside have a problem with heat. When luminaries are in use, heat is produced. The electronics in the floodlights will be harmed if the temperature is too high. We create a sophisticated heat management system to address this issue. The fins’ enormous surface area allows heat to be conducted away.

Anti-glare and flicker-free lighting for a televised cricket field  

The lighting fixtures for the outdoor venues hosting the ICC Cricket World Cup should be of the highest caliber. Lighting without flickering is one of the requirements. Our LED lighting solution supports high-speed cameras that shoot at a frequency of 5000 to 6000 Hz because the flicker rate is less than 0.3% at this rate. Under the camera, the lumen shift is hardly noticeable. The anti-glare helps lessen light pollution and light trespass while also lessening the dazzling effect on spectators and players inside cricket stadiums.

Increased lighting uniformity

Better consistency of the lighting. It is not ideal to have lights that abruptly become overly bright or dim. The eyes are uncomfortable because of it. Our state-of-the-art optics can increase uniformity to 0.8, meeting USACA requirements. Another advantage is anti-glare optics. There are thousands of fans on a cricket ground. Low-glare lighting won’t bother their eyes. Throughout the games, they may savor the crystal-clear eyesight. Additionally, the optics enable high-speed photography at up to 5,000 Hz. It is the premium luminary that doesn’t flicker.

The modular design of our sports LED lights

What if an unforeseen error happens? Incorrect cable connections or severe natural disasters could cause the LED cricket stadium lights to go out. Simply removing the damaged area and replacing it with a new unit is all that is required to restore the luminary. We provide you free modular for installation. As a result, maintenance may be performed more cheaply and quickly.

Lighting for Cricket Fields Questions and Answers

How much does cricket stadium lighting cost

The cost of operating the cricket stadium lighting system is (82500 watt x 8 hours / 1000) x $0.12 kWh, which works out to $79.2 per day if you use it for 8 hours per day or $1740 per month (for 22 days). The price of employing LED lights is as follows. If your current lighting systems are halogen, we will require $17400 per month to cover our lighting electricity costs because halogen floodlights use 10 times more energy than LEDs.

Do cricket ground floodlights use a lot of electricity?

Some stadium owners could worry about the ongoing costs of the lighting for the cricket field. We would anticipate that after replacing the outdated lighting, the cost of electricity might be reduced significantly. Due to their greater energy efficiency than metal halide, halogen, or mercury vapor floodlights, LED floodlights consume less electricity.

Our LED lighting has 150 lumens per watt, which is twice as much as conventional HID lighting and ten times as much as halogen floodlights! For instance, a 10,000 watt halogen flood lamp can about match the lumen output of a 1,000 watt LED.

A benefit of employing LED lights in a cricket stadium, in addition to their lower power usage, is that they generate less heat. The batsman, bowler, wicket-keeper, other players, and spectators would become uncomfortable if the ambient temperature increased excessively as a result of high power lights, which greatly impacted the user experience.

Unbelievably, halogen lamps generate heat using over 95% of their energy. It is easy to picture how hot the cricket field would be. However, the energy loss from heat in LEDs is just about 5%.

How long are the floodlights effective for?

Some people may be concerned about whether the new lights will endure longer than the old ones before replacing the lighting in the cricket stadium. In addition to the cost of purchasing the new bulbs, installation will also be expensive. In actuality, the lifespan of our LED floodlights is 100,000 hours. In other words, it lasts for 36.5 years if you leave the lights on for 6 hours each day.

After replacing the bulbs with LEDs, we can significantly reduce maintenance costs compared to the short lifespan of halogen (1000–2000 hours) and metal halide (5000–10,000 hours).

What is the daily cost of keeping the stadium lights on?

If you choose the incorrect kind of luminaires, your stadium lighting operating costs will be significantly greater. The overall power usage for metal halide lights is close to 400,000 watts. The price for leaving the lights on for a day is therefore $1152 (400,000W × 24 hours x $0.12/1000). The cost of lighting for halogen flood lights is calculated as follows: 1,000,000W x 24 hours x $0.12/1000 = $2880. Because halogen has a lesser energy efficiency, we can see that its power consumption is larger. The brightness of a metal halide light is equal to one million watts of halogen lighting. 

Our 100,000 watt LED has a comparable output to both a 1,000,000 watt HID and a 400,000 watt halogen. As a result, each 100,000W of lights costs $288 to operate. When comparing the operating costs of LED and traditional lighting, a significant difference is evident. We can significantly reduce the cost of lighting the cricket pitch by converting the lighting fittings to LED.
