tips for taking pic into bright lights?

I am attempting to take pics of the band in the stadium. Most of the pics have a haze/almost blurry looking. I know it is because of the stadium lights directly behind them. What can I do to prevent this?

I pretty much have 3 strikes against me: they are a moving target, bright light & darkness.

Change your location so you are at ground level.

Use a lens hood.

Set your metering to spot.

When you say haze or blur, what I think of is stray light hitting the glass right off those big flood lights. This can be minimized by going to ground level and using a lens hood.

Stop down the aperture. (I know it seems counterintuitive) Also make sure you've removed any kind of filter you might have on the lens.

Also, make sure your front lens element is clean.
