Incheon replaced ground lighting with LED lighting.
Incheon announced that the ground lighting facilities of Incheon Soccer Stadium, their home stadium, were replaced with the latest LED lighting.
The stadium viewing environment was improved by 안전놀이터replacing the existing dark and slow lighting with the latest LED lighting. As a result, it is expected to provide fans with a different experience through various lighting effects such as turning on flickering lights (psyche lighting) before the game, halftime, after the game, and at various indoor events.
The 232 existing metal halide lights that were removed due to this replacement have been continuously maintained and used since 2012, the year the stadium opened, but last year the average illumination was 2,000 lux, so the entire stadium was dark.
In addition, due to the nature of the metal halide lighting, there was a disadvantage in that it took more than 7 minutes to reach the maximum illumination after turning on.
As a result, from the 2023 season, the existing ground lighting was replaced with 212 new LEDs and 20 spectator lighting fixtures, recording an average illuminance of more than 2,500 lux, and achieving lighting quality that meets Category 1, the highest level of AFC lighting standards.
In addition, immediate lighting has become possible, and as the illumination control system is applied, it is possible to produce various effects using lighting during night games.
On the other hand, the latest LED ground lighting at the Incheon Soccer Stadium will be shown for the first time in earnest in the 8th round of the 2023 K-League 1 2023 with Suwon FC on the 22nd.
