The lights at McKellar Park are set to turn on when Canberra United return home and flick the switch ahead of the upcoming W-League season.
Capital Football allocated McKellar Park as Canberra United's home venue for the 2019-20 season after Belconnen Soccer Club reached a solution for the lights to be used.
A light-pollution complaint from two nearby residents led to the venue turning off its lights for night-time action this year, forcing the local premier league to abandon the stadium for evening fixtures.
Canberra United played seven home matches last season, including two Thursday night games at McKellar Park.
The league's television broadcaster wanted the night matches played under lights to capitalise on prime-time audiences.
Residents raised concerns about increased luminosity and light spillage following Canberra United's clash with Brisbane Roar last year, but the team are set to return to the venue when the competition kicks off in November.
Capital Football boss Phil Brown confirmed the organisation allocated McKellar Park as the club's home ground when they submitted their draw preferences and venue availability last week.
"It's been our home since day one and we're looking forward to playing there [next season]," Brown said.
"It won't be so much of an issue in summer as lights aren't something we rely on for Sunday afternoon fixtures, unless there's Thursday night broadcast matches which is yet to be determined."
Belconnen United Football Club will also return to McKellar Park for training next year, after being forced to move evening sessions to the AIS and rent multiple fields throughout the week.
The W-League draw is currently under construction and Football Federation Australia will release the full fixture in the coming weeks.
The upcoming season will start two-weeks later than last year's edition due to the FIFA Women's World Cup and the United States' National Women's Soccer League scheduling.
This means Canberra United star Ellie Carpenter will be available to play the team's season opener after her stint with the Portland Thorns.
The 2019-20 season will kick off on November 14, three-weeks after the NWSL championship decider.
"This change of start date will allow players to complete their duties in the NWSL before possibly joining a W-League club," an FFA spokesperson said.
"We have recently been in discussions with the NWSL in regards to working together for mutually beneficial outcomes."
The delayed scheduling could also clash with the premier league preseason for local Canberra United players.
Meanwhile Canberra United are expected to announce new signings for the 2019-20 season over the coming weeks.
