The iconic stadium features a wall of lights all around the outside which shows red and blue (the team’s colours) on match days.
The FC Bayern Munich have teamed up with Philips in a plan to improve the quality of their lights while decreasing their effect on the environment. Philips have promised that the installation of LED lights will use 60% less energy than their current lights.
This will result in 71,000 seated stadium using 60% less energy, reduce carbon emissions by over 360 tonnes a year and reduce replacement/maintenance costs.
Managing Director of Philips Lighting in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, Roger Karner, said: “We will expand the palette [of the stadium] from three to 16 million colours. There will be plenty of light scenarios possible with which the Allianz Arena will be able to create unique moods.”
