Manchester United is following its Premier League counterparts Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur as it prepares to install Musco’s state-of-the-art LED lighting system at Old Trafford.

Musco Lighting will fit its custom-designed ‘Total Light Control’ technology at the stadium in time for the beginning of the 2021-22 season, with installation beginning immediately.

The new lighting system is said to include customised optics that directs light onto the pitch, which will eliminate the glare endured by players or spectators and further improve the quality of broadcasts.

Optics is just one element that will benefit from the new lighting system with energy consumption said to be reduced by more than 20%, which will help the club cut its emissions.

The introduction of Musco’s ‘Total Light Control’ means Old Trafford is among esteemed company as Wembley Stadium, the San Siro and Monaco’s Stade Louis II all have its technology installed.

The company explains: “Musco’s TLC for LED system technology delivers a level of light control and uniformity that can’t be matched, and is the solution of choice for neighbourhood fields, collegiate and professional stadiums and arenas, international speedways, and global events such as the Olympic Games.

“Musco backs its LED solutions with a long-term warranty covering parts and labour, eliminating maintenance.”
