Leicester Tigers


The Project

The Leicester Tigers are a rugby union club that play in the English Premiership. They are renowned as the most successful English club since the introduction of league rugby, and have been English champions a record 10 times.

When the club were planning a switch to LED lighting in their training grounds, they approached their local electrical wholesaler who recommended NET LED Lighting as the supplier due to the choice and quality of LED lighting options and the services offered by NET LED throughout the project from start to finish.

Initially, the NET LED Regional Sales Manager visited the club to survey the premises, understand the club’s requirements and discuss possible LED lighting options. In summary, the club wanted a lighting solution that would cut energy costs and improve the light quality in the gym and indoor training area.

The Solution

From the initial meeting and site survey, the NET LED Lighting Guides Team prepared a choice of different lighting designs to come up with an optimum LED lighting solution to achieve the improved lighting quality and energy savings needed. Having considered various luminaire and emergency lighting options, the solution chosen was a simple, cost effective installation of highly efficient and robust T8 LED Tubes in the gym and indoor training area.

The T8 LED Tubes installed at Leicester Tigers have aluminium housings and polycarbonate diffusers which increase the tubes’ strength and reliability. They also have internal drivers and rotatable end caps as standard, ensuring ease of installation and that the light output can be directed exactly where needed.

The Result

The club have seen immediate results, with a dramatic improvement in the light quality of the gym and indoor training area.

The switch to LED lighting has reduced the club’s lighting running costs by over 60%.
