Zumtobel Group Illuminates Germany’s Largest Football Stadium

The Zumtobel Group recently equipped the legendary stadium of Borussia Dortmund (BVB), the SIGNAL IDUNA PARK, with a LED floodlight system.

With a capacity of more than 81,000 spectators, the SIGNAL IDUNA PARK is the largest football stadium in Germany. It is an iconic venue, lauded by fans around the world for its famous Yellow Wall and exhilarating atmosphere.

The Zumtobel Group provided a service package ranging from lighting planning and project management during implementation to commissioning. The new lighting solution from the Group's Thorn brand includes 252 Thorn ALTIS LED floodlights that ensure flicker-free operation to support HDTV-broadcasting and super-slow-motion, fulfilling the luminance level requirements for the German Bundesliga as well as for the upcoming UEFA EURO 2024, for which the stadium in Dortmund has been selected as one of 10 venues.

"With the new highly modern floodlight, we have sustainably invested in the basic technical equipment of the stadium. For the implementation, we chose our long-standing partner, the Zumtobel Group," said Dr. Christian Hockenjos, Borussia Dortmund's Director Organisation, and continues: "With 2100 lux in the direction of the cameras, we now clearly exceed the DFL minimum requirements and already meet the UEFA requirements for the EURO 2024.”

All 252 floodlights are connected to a common IP-based control system via the DMX interface of their control gear. The basis for immediate controllability and dynamic lighting effects in real time is a fiber optic network specially installed for this purpose.
