With a seating capacity for over 67,000 fans, officials for Atlético de Madrid wanted to create an immersive stadium experience that starts from the moment people enter the parking lot and lasts until the moment they leave. In addition to creating the ultimate experience for fans in the stands, it was critical to ensure the best possible viewing experience for people watching at home on TV. Another key priority was to create additional revenue streams for increased profitability by allowing for the flexibility to host a wide variety of new events at the stadium.
Wanda Metropolitano is the first 100% LED lighting stadium installation in the world. Connected LED lighting and Interact Sports software offer unique opportunities for synchronization and integration of different stadium systems. The primary objective of the project was to enhance the fan experience for those enjoying the game in the stadium, and those watching a live or recorded broadcast at home. A combination of ColorGraze and Vaya Flood luminaires provide vibrant lighting, while the new Interact Sports software gives one-touch control of the fully connected and integrated LED lighting for the entire stadium including façade, pitch, hospitality, and exterior parking area lighting.
