Most sports stadiums and indoor arenas use high intensity discharge (HID) lamps for almost all of their overhead lighting needs.

While HID lamps are very efficient, they require significant time to warm up and achieve full brightness after being extinguished.

In 2013, the Super Bowl was delayed after a power disruption knocked off some lighting. It didn’t take long to get the lights back on, but it did take time for them to warm again up to full brightness. Why? Because the stadium was using HID lamps, which require a significant amount of time to warm up. The quick disruption of light leads to several minutes of delay in the game.
