Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum

Iconic Venue Once Again Turns to Musco

“The quality of the new lighting system at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum is ushering a whole new era for the facility and we couldn’t be happier. This was a critical aspect of a significant renovation project at the stadium, and we knew we couldn’t take any chances with it. Musco and ME Engineers delivered, as expected. The field looks absolutely brilliant. The precision is really amazing.”

Three decades ago, as part of its preparations for hosting the Summer Olympics, Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum partnered with Musco—the Official Supplier of Lighting to the 1984 Olympic Games—for the installation of a new lighting system for opening ceremonies and track and field competition.

Now, 32 years later, the Coliseum—home to the University of Southern California Trojans and the newly relocated Los Angeles Rams—will once again shine brighter under a state-of-the-art Musco lighting system.

With the new lighting system in place, the Coliseum also will realize a significant reduction in energy consumption—cutting CO2 emissions by 288 metric tons over 10 years, which is the equivalent of taking 61 cars off the road for a year.

In addition to saving energy and reducing glare, the system creates:

  • Higher Light Quality – increases vertical light levels by 65 percent for better TV broadcasts and improves the uniformity of light on the field for players and TV
  • Lower Operating Costs – cuts operating costs with instant on/off/dimming capabilities for varied light levels
  • Special Effects Capabilities – interfaces with DMX controls for spectacular light shows and special effects
  • Eliminates Maintenance Costs – eliminates maintenance costs with a long-term parts and labor warranty
