STADIUM NEWS | New floodlight scheme for the Racecourse Ground approved

New scheme capable of delivering consistent 1500 lux

19 October 2022

The Club can confirm that the planning application to replace the existing floodlights at the Racecourse Ground has been approved.

The illustration above shows the relative position of the new floodlight scheme against the existing towers.

The new floodlight scheme will be capable of delivering a consistent 1500 lux to meet UEFA’s category 4 stadium requirements but can be programmed to deliver a lux level of 350, the requirement of the National League, and any level between.

The columns are 40m in height with a forward cantilever of 20 degrees from 20m and are taller than the existing floodlight towers by 8m.

The Club have tendered the project and are awaiting the final costs to be confirmed.

No start date is as yet confirmed, although it is envisaged that the new towers will be in place before the end of the season.

The Club would like to thank all those connected with the successful application from both our Design Team and Wrexham County Borough Council.
