Built in 2012 as a primary venue for the Summer Olympics and Summer Paralympics, London Stadium quickly gained international recognition for hosting a wide array of international events. The venue needed a new lighting system that would adapt to its unique reconfigurable lower-tier bowl and long cantilevered roof, while meeting all of the distinctive lighting requirements and broadcast standards of various professional sports leagues and world-class concerts. Further, installation needed to happen in the midst of the COVID-19 global pandemic.
Having installed its Total Light Control—TLC for LED® technology at other iconic venues across the globe, it was clear that Musco was the right partner for London Stadium. It custom-designed a TLC for LED system that meets UEFA, Elite A, Rugby, IAAF, and English Premier League standards, and features special effects controls with light-to-sound synchronization, color-changing RGBW technology, and infrastructure for moving spotlights. Musco was able to complete installation adhering to heightened COVID-19 safety protocols, and worked around the ongoing English Premier League season.
