Over 15,000 LED lights will be installed across Perth Stadium and Sports Precinct, making it the biggest system of its kind globally.
LED lighting is making its progress into the stadium world as more and more venue operators choose this cost-effective and high quality technology. Perth Stadium won’t be the first one, but no other stadium to date has received a system of this size.
Premier Colin Barnett said: "This lighting system is another world-class design feature, allowing visually stunning light shows to be created inside and outside of the stadium."
"Perth Stadium will truly change the spectator experience and every design decision has always had the fans and their experience at the core. This lighting system will interact with the fabric roof lighting system, allowing the roof to act as a giant canvas, capable of showcasing a variety of colours in numerous configurations such as purple for Dockers games and blue and gold for Eagles home games."
The lighting system is designed and supplied by global lighting company Philips Lighting. Once installed, it will be the biggest LED sports lighting installation of its kind in the world, providing a lighting solution that is adaptable to specific requirements of sporting codes and other events. Over 15,000 lights will be installed in and around the building.
Perth Stadium is currently at 70% progress rate in overall construction. As can be seen below, the bowl is fully enclosed already and covered. The unique aluminium facade is nearing completion and 40 per cent of the 60,000 seats are in place.
