Night Cricket & Football is now a step closer at Loxton with new light towers being installed this week.
The new lights replace the system installed in the 1970's and will provide a 200lux lighting output across the oval and 350lux over the cricket pitch square.
The upgraded lighting will meet standards for both SANFL football as well as High level Cricket.
The project in total worth near $800,000 was funded partly through State Government grant funding.
Lighting upgrades at the Renmark oval are also underway, with Barmera’s upgrade also in the pipeline.
While night football has been trialled in the region before, it’s hoped the newer technology will see a return of night or twilight sport.
