Middlesbrough FC Unveils New LED System at Riverside Stadium
“Middlesbrough Football Club is delighted with the successful installation of the advanced LED lighting system supplied by Musco Lighting. Musco completed the design and installation of the system meeting the very tight deadline in the short off season. The lights have been independently tested and fully comply with the exacting standard demanded by the Premier League. We look forward to working with Musco on other lighting projects at the Club.”

Middlesbrough Football Club
Middlesbrough Football Club recently earned its promotion back into the Premier League after finishing runners-up in the Football League Championship. With a move back into England’s top soccer league in store, club officials set out to find a cost-efficient system that complied with Premier League lighting standards. Musco’s SportsCluster® System proved to be the ideal choice.
The installation of the new system at Riverside Stadium will provide the club with features that will reduce the cost of ownership and produce a stage-like atmosphere for players, spectators, and television broadcasts:
- Light Control - Customized optics direct light onto the pitch and minimizes glare from shining into the eyes of athletes and fans
- Energy Savings - Instant on/off capabilities and dimming controls adjust light power output, further conserving energy
- Superior Performance - Increases light levels by 100 percent, while providing consistent light uniformity across the playing surface
- Entertainment - Features DMX special effects for pre-show and halftime lighting displays
The system is also covered by a 10-year parts and labor warranty backed by a team of technicians, that will eliminate maintenance costs and headaches throughout the next decade.
