Hockey is one of the fastest team sports and requires a lot of light, for players, referees and spectators. The lighting needs to contribute towards the contracts between the puck and the ice with excellent uniformity so everyone involved can clearly see what is happening. In a non-televised context 600 lux on the ice is sufficient but when broadcasting this has to be at least 1000 lux often more. When planning the light it is important to ensure that the spectator area is lit to at least 30% of the playing surface to avoid tiring visual contrast. During the initial line-ups and breaks lower levels are common place with spotlights following the players as they move around the rink, assuming the system is optimised with lighting control.
