FIH Quality Programme for Sports Lighting

Sports lighting plays an important role in the delivery of hockey across many areas of the game. It is a key requirement for venues hosting televised tournaments and allows increased hours of play on club, community and college fields maximising hockey opportunities and outcomes. Lighting is a large, long-term investment so it is important consumers choose wisely. FIH approved lighting systems have been independently tested to ensure compliance with robust performance and manufacturing requirements, meaning those investing can do so with the confidence they are dealing with companies that the FIH endorse as being the best suppliers of hockey lighting.
