Estadio BBVA Chooses Musco Lighting’s TLC For LED System
Estadio BBVA has chosen to install a state-of-the-art LED sports lighting system from Musco Lighting, in preparation to host the 2026 FIFA World Cup.
The custom Total Light Control—TLC for LED™ system will raise light levels to FIFA Lighting Standard A, enable dimming, reduce energy consumption by more than 40 percent, and enhance the fan experience with colour-changing light shows.
The system upgrade was driven by several factors including the upcoming World Cup, energy savings, and the need to replace the existing lighting system at Estadio BBVA, home of Rayados and Rayadas de Monterrey in Mexico.
After evaluating various sports lighting manufacturers, club leaders chose to partner with Musco for its superior technology and reputation for successfully completing and maintaining similar projects in Mexico and around the world.
“The Musco lighting system closely aligns with our medium and long-term plans for Estadio BBVA and is designed to perform at a level of quality consistent with our standards for a world-class facility. Above all, it elevates the stadium experience for our fans,” explained Everardo Valdez, spokesman for the Monterrey club.
The new lighting system will include luminaire assemblies mounted on Estadio BBVA’s roof structure with specially designed equipment. This solution provides uniform lighting on the field of play and achieves higher light levels than the previous system with fewer luminaires.
Additional colour-changing lights will illuminate the ceiling and can be synchronised to music thanks to Show-Light® Pro Venue special effects to generate unforgettable light shows.
The new system is expected to be operational in time for the start of the Liga MX Apertura Tournament in July.
