German soccer giants Bayern Munich collaborated with lighting manufacturers Zumtobel Group. The company will be upgrading the lighting at the club’s Allianz Arena stadium.
Zumtobel is joining as the Bundesliga club’s exclusive lighting partner, and will replace the existing lighting systems in place from 2005, when Bayern first moved from their former Olympiastadion home.
The second phase of the project will carry on the lighting of stadium stairways, while a later phase will see enhanced lighting in outside areas of the stadium – all fitted with energy conserving LED systems. The new systems are already being implemented at the 75,000-seater stadium, with work set to be fully completed by 2020.
The Zumtobel Group will be offering its extensive expertise and decades of experience and, in addition to an outstanding lighting solution, providing with the full service that the arena is looking for.
Zumtobel Group is extremely proud to have the opportunity as the lighting partner of FC Bayern to upgrade one of the world’s most modern stadiums with their latest lighting solutions in the inside and outside areas.
Translating the specifications and ideas of the architect and the light designer into tangible products was a major challenge, which was met successfully thanks to the competence in stadium lighting and as a full-range supplier.
