It won't just be the players' silky skills lighting up the pitch at Atletico Madrid's new stadium next season.

The new Estadio La Peineta arena in the Spanish capital will be the first to employ Philips ArenaExperience, an LED lighting system that lights the pitch and other parts of the stadium in different colors. It'll be lit up in Atletico's red and white to get fans going before and during a game. When a goal is scored, a light show will help fans celebrate.

The 67,000-seat capacity stadium will be lit by 336 Philips ArenaVision LED floodlights starting with the 2017-2018 season.

Managed by Diego Simeone, Atletico Madrid plays in Spain's La Liga and the UEFA Champions League. They're currently spending their last season in their current home, the Vicente Calderon Stadium.

To get a similar effect in your own home, Philips Hue lightbulbs are among the various types of color-changing smart lightbulbs now available.
