9v9 Goalposts

January 2, 2014 0 Comment

9v9 Goalposts     9v9 football goals above 18kilos in weight are now to be made to the same heavy weight as adult football goals. As a company dedicated to the safety of goalposts we cannot believe the revisions to the football goalpost safety standards that have just been introduced. Heavy freestanding steel 9v9 goalposts  used  in 16×7 football goals and 21x7football goals for  9v9 games may cause serious injury if they topple onto a child. We have sent a full report to the BSI safety committee about the ridiculous situation where lighter safer goalposts are excluded from the safety standards. We are gathering support from  junior clubs to show the support for all freestanding goals to be made to a safe weight/ mass .We hope that the Football Association and British Standards Institute will apply a  common sense approach to the safety  problem of freestanding 9v9  football goals on the new European goalpost standards.
