Sports stadiums in the UK may be inspired to invest in LED lighting panels to help spectators see better during night games by the Globe Life Park stadium in the US, home to the Texas Rangers, which has just begun installing these lighting options.

According to SportsDay, the move comes as part of a $6 million overhaul of the stadium, with Rob Matwick - Rangers executive vice-president of business operations - saying that the new lights should help to improve visibility for both players and fans.

The previous lighting system needed around 780 fixtures, but the LED lights will only require around 500. This means that up to 40 per cent less energy than the old system for lights. Other benefits include quicker warm-up time and new special effects created by the LEDs.

Other teams to have made the move to LED lights include the Seattle Mariners and the New York Yankees.

There are many benefits to opting for wholesale LED panel lights, including reduced energy bills thanks to the more efficient nature of this type of lighting. According to the Energy Saving Trust, 18 per cent of a house's typical electricity bill will come from lighting but you could reduce your bills by approximately £30 a year if you swap your halogen bulbs for LEDs instead.

LEDs also last longer than incandescent bulbs, so while you may well spend more on the initial investment with LEDs, you'll make savings over the lifecycle of these products. To find out more, get in touch with us here at LED Panel Store today.
