Chelsea F.C. - Light shows
Venue: Stamford Bridge
Lighting Designer: Tim Routledge
Kit: Phillips Lighting
Lighting Programmers: Tom Young
Tim Routledge Lighting Design have been working alongside Philips Lighting and Chelsea Football Club to demonstrate their unique lighting system that has taken flood lighting to a totally new experience. A very different project for us mixing our knowledge of entertainment lighting with the usually simple world of sports lighting. The new system installed by Philips Lighting at Stamford Bridge is a fully DMX controlled LED system and the first for any top flight club in world that enables Chelsea F.C. to not only just switch their lights on and off but dim, chase and create scenes - unheard of as most systems normally need 10 to 20 minutes between switching them on and off. For the initial launch we programmed a number of timecoded light shows and we are now working with the club to create cues and changes to the lighting for pre and post match entertainment - a first for the Premier League.
