The Arizona Cardinals’ home field, University of Phoenix Stadium, will host the Fiesta Bowl in December, the Pro Bowl in January 2015 and the Super Bowl in February 2015. In advance of the big games, the stadium has installed high performance LED stadium lights from Ephesus Lighting, Inc., becoming the first NFL venue to illuminate the playing surface exclusively with LED lighting.
The University of Phoenix Stadium installed just 312 Ephesus Stadium fixtures to replace more than 780 metal halide fixtures, and is expecting to experience approximately a 75% reduction in overall sports lighting energy.
“We are excited about replacing our metal halide fixtures with state-of-the-art Ephesus LED lighting fixture,” said Peter Sullivan, General Manager and Regional Vice President for Global Spectrum at University of Phoenix Stadium. “As the host venue for the 2015 Super Bowl, we look forward to demonstrating the benefits of LED technology to a global audience.”
