Latest Philips dynamic LED lighting technology for Sevilla FC and Real Betis Balompié

ESSMA Stadium Partner Philips announced an agreement to transform the lighting of the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán Stadium (capacity 42,500), home to Spanish La Liga club Sevilla FC

By doing so the LaLiga club will meet the latest standards of international sports federations and broadcasters and will be able to entertain its fans with amazing pre-match light shows. 

Furthermore, the multifunctionality of the stadium will evolve thanks to the new lighting capability making it a dynamic venue for sporting events, concerts and other events.

The new lighting will include the 4K resolution (ultra-high definition TV), standard for LaLiga in Spain. The latest technologies, like movable colour spots combined with pitch lighting and perimeter LED displays will be installed which will enhance the fan experience.

“The partnership is a new step in the consolidation of the Ramón Sánchez-Pizjuán stadium as a first-class venue, following the comprehensive refurbishments we have undertaken since the summer of 2015. We believe it is important for us to have lighting that meets the demands of the television broadcasters and in that sense we are enormously pleased for Philips Lighting to implement this technology.”

José Castro - Sevilla FC President

“It is fitting that Sevilla, the oldest soccer club in Spain’s top-flight division, is also a technology trailblazer. The new pitch lighting will provide fans with a stadium experience that is unprecedented in the country. It enables the stadium to compete at the highest level as a venue for international events and of course fans watching at home will not be left out. They will be able to follow their favorite players and all the action in the crisp detail of 4K.” 

Josep Martínez - CEO of Philips Lighting Spain and Portugal 

On the other side of Seville, Philips Lighting and Real Betis Balompié have reached an agreement to become partners. The Dutch company will provide Led lights for the pitch, as well as some inner facilities in the Benito Villamarín Stadium. Finally, eight of the VIP boxes in the stadium will from now on be equipped with high standard Modular lighting.
