VV Nieuw-Lekkerland

Since 2018, the ambitious football club VV Nieuw-Lekkerland has been playing under the LICHT2 LED lighting from SPORT Technologies. Following a members general meeting, it was decided to make both the main and training field more sustainable. On the main field, the conventional 2200-watt fixtures have been replaced by 20, 1000-watt fixtures. As a result, the club now saves at least 55% on its energy bill.

The football club is uniquely situated close to the UNESCO World Heritage site at Kinderdijk, the world-famous mill area. Concern over excess light from VV Nieuw Lekkerland affecting the heritage site and surrounding area was mitigated thanks to the use of special lenses at the ground.
