When considering a lighting system for the newly‑built Lynn Family Stadium, Louisville City Football Club (FC) wanted to accomplish more than good field lighting—it wanted to create a one-of-a-kind match‑day experience for its own games as well as those of Racing Louisville FC, the National Women’s Soccer League team with whom it shares the arena. In addition to providing superior visibility with optimal light‑levels and minimized spill and glare, Louisville FC wanted a system that would produce cutting‑edge light shows and special effects. Club leaders were also interested in converting a portion of underutilized space outside the stadium into a recreational hub that would create additional opportunities for local youth to practice soccer.
Louisville City FC researched several lighting manufacturers in order to find a partner that could go beyond simply lighting the stadium. The superior light technology of Musco’s solutions motivated the club to partner with the company. Fans and players gain the best possible visibility as a result of Musco’s factory-aiming capabilities and patented visoring technology achieving desired light‑levels while cutting off glare and spill light. The Show‑Light® entertainment package produces an array of cutting‑edge light shows and special effects for exciting celebrations. And Musco’s Mini-Pitch System™ modular sports solution—complete with fencing, goals, lockable storage, and lighting—creates opportunities for local youth to play and further expands match‑day activities.
