We make match day work.*

*For a true sports fan, a match is never just a match. And there’s nothing like being there to see your favourite sport played live. Football, rugby, car racing, golf—no matter the event, the true power of practice, determination and great sportsmanship always shines through. 

But great sporting events rely on other kinds of power, too. From the lights overhead to the freshly cut grass on the pitch, you’ll find Eaton power management technology helping to make sure that the critical systems and infrastructure behind the scenes deliver just as reliably as the players do. Because every match and every event can become a fond memory. And Eaton is there every step of the way making sure it works.

We make the best seats in the house work.*

*Today’s stadiums are a lot like small cities that come to life every match day. For the people who operate these modern-day wonders, the goal is to keep tens of thousands of fans not just entertained but safe, comfortable and well-informed. And don’t forget about the millions of viewers watching as events are broadcast in real time to homes, phones and devices everywhere.

Eaton is proud to put its power expertise to work by energising stadiums and helping to make fully connected experiences possible. Enabling critical electrical systems that light and power the stadium. Providing reliable back-up power for live broadcasts, from the cameras on the field to the LEDs high overhead. Or creating innovative energy storage systems that help stadiums use power more efficiently—and even give it back to the grid during times of peak demand or emergencies. 

The thing about sports lighting is that we affect people. We’re not just putting up lights; we bring the pitch to life. We’re energising the stadium, the players, even the fans watching at home. It’s really exciting.

We make pitches and fairways work.*

*You don’t need a stadium to enjoy a great match—but having a well-manicured pitch to play on is always a plus. From football pitches to baseball diamonds to golf fairways, keeping the grass growing is no small task. 

Look closely, and you’ll find Eaton hard at work keeping you on your game no matter where you play. Behind every sprinkler there are innovative control and filtration systems driving intelligent and efficient irrigation. Eaton’s hydraulic hoses and hydrostatic transmissions keep the mowers mowing. And Eaton’s Golf Pride grips, one of the world’s leading brands for high-performance golf, help you play like a pro.

Our legendary performance products—including Detroit Locker differentials and TVS Superchargers—are trusted by gearheads around the globe because every product we offer is tested and validated in our fully equipped labs and 650-plus-acre proving grounds in Marshall, Michigan, USA.
