When designing a new stadium, this guide should be used to determine the level of illuminance required. Once the illuminance system (i.e. floodlights) has been installed, a UEFA illuminance test report should be submitted to UEFA for analysis. A test report template can be found in UEFA Illuminance test report template.

Note that UEFA encourages the use of energy efficient LED lighting and recommends it for pitch illuminance systems. However, it is important for the correct high-quality LED light source to be used.
