Hull City to enlist Philips

English soccer side Hull City have announced they will install Philips LED floodlights at their KC Stadium home ground in the summer.

Philips, a global lighting solutions company, will install its ArenaVision LED floodlighting system in time for the start of the 2015/16 season, ensuring the KC Stadium’s floodlighting is up to the latest TV broadcast requirements set out by the Premier League.

In addition to lighting the pitch for sports events, the Philips ArenaVision LED control system will also be used to create special entertainment lighting effects at the stadium.

John North, managing director of the Stadium Management Company, said: “The new state of the art, energy efficient, LED pitch lighting system for the KC Stadium delivers the ability to instantly change from one light setting to another.

“This is not just a game changer for spectators but also for the future of the modern multi-purpose stadium, a key feature of the operational strategy for our sporting venues.”

Andy Gowen, the director of public lighting, Philips Lighting UK, said, “More than ever before lighting can add value to a stadium.

“Our ArenaVision LED floodlighting bridges the worlds of entertainment lighting and to date static, high quality pitch lighting to deliver a memorable experience for visitors whether they are coming to watch Hull in action or to hear their favourite bands perform.”

Hull City are currently 17th in the Premier League, the top professional soccer division in England.
