MANCHESTER, UNITED KINGDOM–Manchester United is moving ahead with the installation of a state-of-the-art LED lighting system at Old Trafford.
The new system will be custom designed, manufactured, and installed by Musco Lighting. Musco’s Total Light Control—TLC for LED™ technology features customized optics that directs light onto the pitch, eliminating glare from players or spectators, greatly enhancing the quality of broadcasts. The stadium will not only see an increase in light performance and light quality, it will also see a reduction of more than 20 percent in energy consumption with the new lighting system.
Musco’s LED system has been installed at several English Premier League venues, including Tottenham Stadium, the Emirates Stadium, and the Etihad Stadium; as well as other major European venues including Wembley Stadium, the San Siro, and Stade Louis II.
Manufacturing and installation of the new system at Old Trafford is scheduled to begin immediately following the end of the current season, and will be completed in time for the start of the 2021/22 Premier League season.
