“Musco Lighting delivered a custom fabricated lighting solution that was easy to install and performed per design. We are very satisfied with the product and results. Nissan stadium is one of the first major stadiums in Japan to have the LED lighting for the field of play. Nissan stadium is the first to use music, lighting and video shows programmed together for the stadium entertainment purpose.”
— Mr. Shoichi Takahashi
Nissan Stadium, also known as International Stadium of Yokohama, is located in Yokohama, Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan, and is currently the largest stadium in the country. In the past the venue has played host to multiple rugby, soccer, and American football events as well the FIFA World Cup and Olympic Games. Ownership determined the stadium was in need of a new lighting system that would be up to the task of lighting both the Rugby World Cup in 2019 and Tokyo Olympic Soccer matches scheduled for 2020. Priorities were to improve light quality for both athletes and fans, meet the specific lighting standards of all organizations scheduled to compete at the venue, and improve energy efficiencies.
