Case Study: Haverfordwest County AFC

About Our Client

The Bridge Meadow ground is a multi-purpose stadium known as Ogi Bridge Meadow Stadium and home to Haverfordwest County AFC. The ground has benefited from some investment in recent years to feature an all-seated covered stand that runs for most of the length of the pitch.

The all-seated stands are separated by a press, and the TV camera gantry also benefits from eight floodlights, split between four on each side of the pitch.

The Challange

The club approached Abacus Lighting to upgrade their lighting systems to enhance the sustainability of its facilities. We used their existing static mast infrastructure to replace their metal halide floodlights with energy efficient LED lighting.



Our lighting solution involved the installation of our Challenger 1 LED floodlights.

  • Challenger 1 LED Floodlights
  • Used Existing Static Masts
  • Designed to 200Lux with 0.6 uniformity

Our lighting solution involved the installation of our HL250 base hinged masts with Challenger 1 LED floodlights.

The Abacus Lighting team surveyed the site and conducted a design feasibility study demonstrating the benefits of upgrading the lighting system to key stakeholders at Haverfordwest County AFC. As the infrastructure was already in place, we could set about installing LED floodlights to improve the illumination of the pitch and provide safe visual conditions for players and spectators.

Particular attention was taken to ensure surrounding areas, such as the nearby St David’s Church, would not be affected by light pollution from the pitch.
