Additional consideration should be applied to ensure that players in the penalty area are not affected by discomfort glare. An acceptable level of discomfort glare can generally be achieved with a linear run of luminaires, if their focus points are placed such that players can stand in the penalty area and look towards the corners without hindrance.

Luminaires mounted within 15° of the goal line should be focused away from the penalty box, as indicated in the diagram above.

Multiple arrays of luminaires should not be positioned within 15° of either side of the goal line.

A linear array of luminaires used for this purpose should not comprise more than two rows.
