"The loss in stadium lights during the match was due to two significant power dips in Southern California Edison Industrial grid in which the facility sits. Any time the facility experiences a power dip on the network, emergency event lights are activated and the stadium lights immediately reset, which takes approximately 20 minutes to illuminate to full capacity for the event to resume."
