Kick off for Euro 2020 (2021)

24 teams, 51 matches and 12 cities… It can only mean one thing… UEFA EURO 2020 IS FINALLY HERE!!! With visual and televisual comfort being a key factor with stadium lighting. Here’s a few reasons why Amnis is the right choice for your pitch, no matter the size.

It’s no surprise that 2020 saw many challenges and changes due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This saw many events being delayed or even cancelled. However, 2021 sees the revival of many competitions, including events such as Wimbledon, the Olympic and Paralympic Games, and not forgetting the UEFA European Championship starting this weekend!

Kick off will be held at Stadio Olimpico, Rome tonight at 8pm (BST) with Turkey taking on Italy, and the tournament continues through to the 11th of July where the final will be held at our very own Wembley Stadium! 23 teams will be competing to beat current champions, Portugal, for the Henri Delaunay Trophy, otherwise known as the UEFA European Championship Cup.  

One of the biggest challenges with televised sporting events, can be the flicker rate of stadium lighting. With millions of people all over the globe tuning in to view one of the most eagerly awaited events, a crystal-clear picture is vital. With matches scheduled in several time zones, it’s inevitable twilight games will take place throughout the competition.

Stadium lighting is governed by sporting associations around the globe, who work closely with professional lighting bodies to ensure safety and visual comfort is being met. The CIBSE guidelines outline the ‘Flicker factor’ and states that the ‘Flicker Rate’ should be no more than 0.12%.

The Amnis series from the Kingfisher Sport range has been designed and engineered to perform perfectly under stadium conditions. With rigorous testing to ensure there are no stroboscopic effects on viewers both pitch-side and at home. The Amnis series has a total flicker index of 0.0004% ensuring not only safe viewing but optimal visual comfort for all. The luminaires are also suitable for streaming on HDTV as well as slow motion broadcasting.

When our team set about designing the Amnis series, reflector technology was a clear choice. Producing crystal clear, low glare distribution, this luminaire offers perfect visual comfort, coupled with high performance and energy efficiency as standard.
