The Waterford Regional Sports Centre is set to shine bright in the new League of Ireland seasons, thanks to a recent €260,000 investment by the Department of Tourism, Culture-Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media, and Waterford City and County Council. This significant investment has been used to install new floodlights at the main pitchside, and the results are nothing short of impressive.
Carried out by the expert team at Enerveo Ltd., the floodlight upgrade delivers brighter, clearer light to the football pitch, but is also resulting in energy and CO2 savings, making it a win-win situation for all involved.
RSC facilities manager, Darren Sealy said:
“The new floodlights are set to have a particularly positive impact on Waterford FC and all who use the facility. With the ability to deliver exceptional light quality, players and fans alike will be able to enjoy a better experience during matches and training sessions. The bonus is that the new installation will allow us to host competitive European u21 international matches as well.”
Waterford FC’s first home match since the installation takes place tonight, with an SSE Airtricity League of Ireland clash against Longford Town. The match will be a fantastic opportunity for the club to experience the benefits of the new floodlights firsthand, and for the fans to enjoy an even more exciting atmosphere at the games.
Waterford City & County Council wishes the Blues the best of luck for the coming season.
