How many football clubs are there in the Ardal Southern League?

There are 32 clubs in the  Ardal Southern League. The Ardal Southern League was formed because of the Pyramid Review, in line with the Football Association of Wales (FAW) 2020 Vision and Strategic Plan for Welsh Football. The Pyramid League System would provide football clubs throughout Wales with a framework of competitive football appropriate to their playing standards, ground facilities, geographical location and economic means.

In July 2020, it was announced that Floodlighting & Electrical would sponsor the Ardal Southern Football League. With over 40 years of business providing floodlighting and electrical solutions to football clubs across Wales and the UK, we understand first-hand the value and life-line football clubs can provide in the heart of communities. We are delighted to support the Football Association of Wales on providing for their customer’s needs.

As a business that has specialised in sports floodlighting for over 40 years, we are thrilled to be involved and continuing to promote and influence grass roots level football.

  1. How Floodlighting and Electrical can help football clubs

  • We are preferred LUX level testers for the FAW

  • We complete over 150 projects each year for clubs across the UK

  • We ensure that our floodlighting meets the necessary standards for safety and performance

  • We offer maintenance, replacements, and assessment packages all over Wales

  • We are committed to always finding the best lighting solution for minimum light intrusion and maximum coverage

  1. Helping Pontypool United to harness the “Power of Illumination”

We recently worked with Pontypool United RFC, who were favoured with a generous grant from Sport Wales and the Be Active Wales Fund, to upgrade the quality of their current lighting experiences.

We upgraded their lighting systems to LED floodlights, which is a long-term lighting solution with high brightness and low radiated heat. we advised, and later facilitated, the upgrade from their old metal halide lighting to LED lighting for the club. This lamp modernisation will elevate the match day experience for both the players and the spectators when sport is able to commence. We are big advocates for creating stand-out audience and player experiences that are reinforced at every point throughout the pitch.
