Football Lighting

Project Summary:

Montalto Uffugo is a small town in the province of Cosenza in southern Italy. Nestled in the hills of the Apennine Mountains, the territory has rich heritage of cultural and natural attractions. While the residents take great pride in their traditions, they also believe in looking forward by creating new possibilities of aggregation for the community. With this in mind, when ASD Soccer Montalto (Montalto association for amateur sports) began designing a new soccer field for their regional amateur and youth soccer teams, they were ready to push the limits on the usual equipment of amateur sport fields in the region. The new soccer field was designed to offer a go-to landmark for the entire soccer sector in Montalto and the surrounding region, offering a sports facility open for youth soccer teams and schools but more importantly to the teams of the amateur soccer league.

In less than two months the ASD Soccer Montalto realized the regular size soccer field, covered with last generation synthetic grass, and illuminated with a state-of-the-art LED lighting system from Cree that consumes up to 4 times less energy than the proposed equivalent lighting of the traditional type. In fact, the facility is the first and only one in South Italy to be equipped with LED lighting, another reason of great satisfaction for ASD Soccer Montalto aside from the fact to have built a sport facility that is unique in the area.

Cree is a market-leading innovator of LED lighting products, LED components and semiconductor solutions, changing the way people use light.
Cree is leading the LED lighting revolution and making energy-wasting traditional lighting obsolete through the use of energy-efficient, mercury-free LED lighting.

Cree designs revolutionary LED solutions to make switching to LED compelling, while delivering the light quality needed to help enhance operations.
Thanks to its vertically integrated approach, Cree delivers a wide range of products and solutions covering the entire production channel, with the unique advantage of controlling the process and offering high-quality products.
