Good lighting uniformity is important. Sports venues designed for multi-sports should ensure that their proposed lighting considers the needs of all the various sports to be played. The lighting should be positioned so they do not hinder the players and officials vision.
Good quality of lighting is essential for all the outdoor sports like football, hockey, cricket, tennis where players are expected to react quickly to all the fast-moving balls. Good visibility to the athletes, competition judges and team officials enables them to see everything clearly.
