SOUTHAMPTON STARTS WORK ON LED FLOODLIGHTS

Southampton are installing LED floodlights at its St Mary’s home, making it the first LED-lit stadium in Europe.

The process will be completed at the ground in time for the start of the Premier League campaign in August. 

LED lights can be switched on or off in an instant, unlike traditional halide lighting, saving energy costs.

The Saints’ old stadium, The Dell, was also the first English football ground to have permanent floodlighting back in 1950.
