Now, it seems that the Incheon soccer stadium will be able to give fans a different experience with lighting.
The Incheon club announced on the 18th that the ground lighting facilities of the Incheon Soccer Stadium, their home stadium, were replaced with the latest LED lighting.
In order to improve the viewing environment of the Incheon Soccer Stadium, the home stadium for the 2023 season, which will advance to the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Asian Champions League, the Incheon club replaced the existing lighting that was dark and took a long time to turn on 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 (psychedelic lighting) before the game, halftime, after the game, and at various indoor events.
The existing 232 metal halide lights, which 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.
Accordingly, from the 2023 season, the ground lighting of the existing Incheon Soccer Stadium was replaced with 212 state-of-the-art 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, as immediate lighting is possible and a light 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 Incheon Soccer Stadium will be shown for the first time in earnest in the 8th round of Hana One Q K League 1 2023 against Suwon FC at 7:00 pm on Saturday, April 22, when the first night game of the 2023 season is played. 토스카지노
