Any stadium is a beast that consumes huge amounts of energy. On average a 90 minute football match consumes up to 25,000KWh which could power over a dozen homes for an entire year!
Of course, the energy consumption of a stadium is dependent on the season, the temperature and number of attendees. And accounting for the highest levels of consumption are lighting, heating and cooling systems which use electricity in vast quantities. FIFA, the international governing body of association football, demands that each pitch is illuminated evenly which means the need for power hungry stadium lights. It is estimated that floodlights, scoreboards and advertising banners alone account for 40% of the total energy used during a game. Roughly 20% of the energy used is by kitchens, food stalls and catering services and the remaining is generally used through broadcasting the game. Equipment such as satellite transmitters, HD cameras, editing suites and the essential outside broadcast equipment that delivers sporting events to fans across the globe all require electricity.
