Sports lighting for outdoor hockey
Sustainable hockey facilities are fundamental to the development of hockey opportunities for everyone, from the youngest beginner to an international class player. The move to synthetic turf playing fields means there is an increasing desire to use them over an extended period each day and this will often entail the use of artificial sports lighting. However, it is important that the lighting is of an appropriate type and quality.
Split into two parts, the FIH guides to sports lighting describe the different categories of lighting for fields hosting non-televised and televised hockey. The guides provide information for anyone involved in the planning or design of a hockey lighting scheme. They provide the information needed to work through the design, specification and procurement processes to ensure a good result is achieved for players, spectators, media and for the environment.
