Rugby LED Lighting

Lighting a rugby field

Lighting should provide uniform illumination throughout the field, appropriate for the kind of competition proposed. It must also ensure that the full flight of the ball is visible while providing good viewing conditions for players, officials and spectators.
For the competitions, the lighting requirements will probably be dictated by the viewing requirements of the spectators, which in turn are related to the viewing conditions and the spectator capacity of the sports field. Various lighting systems may be suitable for rugby grounds and stadiums. In the provision of any lighting system, one should think about reducing the visual obstruction of the event to the spectators whenever possible.
Care must be taken to ensure that shadows are not projected onto the field due to the reflectors located behind the roofs of the stands. It is permissible to place the posts in line with or near the scoring line (try), since the posts located near this line can reduce the shading of the high goal posts.
