Football Goals for Schools

Football posts manufactured by Harrod Sport have been installed in a range of world-class venues including Wembley Stadium and the FA's St. George's Park - the England national team's training facility. Harrod goals have also been used at numerous major sporting events including the London 2012 Olympics & Paralympics, the Women's World Cup in France and the Premier League.

Football goals are available in a wide variety of constructions. These include Aluminium, Steel and PVC posts, permanent fittings for parks or schools and freestanding posts to allow greater flexibility of use. By identifying the needs of different groups, Harrod Sport is able to supply posts in a wide range of designs and sizes for all levels and age groups.

Portable goals allow for easy transport by utilising Hi-Raise wheels.

Fence folding goals use hinged supports to easily fold flush against a fence, creating space for other sports when not in use.

Integrated weight goals provide strength and safety in addition to manoeuvrability on synthetic surfaces.

Folding goals have folding side frames for ease of transportation and storage, making them ideal for warm-ups and use on temporary pitches.

Safety and Innovation

Whether for schools, clubs, practice or competitive play, all our goal posts are prototyped, developed and built to professional standards of quality and safety in East Anglia.

Harrod Sport are supporting the new European Standard EN 16579 and making changes to our product range in order to meet the requirements. By the start of 2020 over 120 different football goals will have been upgraded to meet the requirements of EN 16579.

At the start of 2017, Harrod Sport opened a new Innovation Centre with 800 square metres of office and workshop space, creating a unique environment for designing, developing and prototyping new products.

Football goals for school playgrounds

When choosing football goals for school playgrounds there a number of factors to consider beyond the age group of the players - the amount of space available, the playing surface and whether the goals will be used indoors or outdoors.

In many cases, portability may be a factor if the goals are for mini soccer or used in a multi games area. Self-weighted goals offer a great level of freedom as Harrod's Hi-Raise wheels or weighted rollers offer increased maneuverability on artificial surfaces.

Ideal for multi-sports playing surfaces, fence folding goal posts feature hinged supports so the posts can fold up flush against a fence when not in use.

Indoor options include Fold-Away or Wheelaway goals:

Fold-Away

For easy storage, the steel FS1 Fold-Away goals use a Button clip mechanism allowing the net supports to fold away. Side frames lock in the play and folded positions for added safety.

Large rubber pads protect and grip floors while the detachable steel bottom backbar and plastic pads to prevent floor damage.

Wheelaway

Harrod's Wheelaway goals feature an extra heavy duty construction designed specifically for use in halls and feature large rubber pads to protect and grip floors. Flip-over wheels are easily operated to make moving the goals easy.

Football goals for local authorities

For local authorities looking to buy football goalposts for parks, community sports areas etc. safety and durability are going to be key concerns as the posts will be assembled in unsupervised areas.

Due to the care taken in the design stage and the high quality of their heavy duty steel goal construction, socketed goal posts offer the highest levels of security and safety in these environments.

Designed for constant outdoor use, the crossbars, backbars and side frames of the classic goal range are built from 48mm steel. Harrod Sport also supply permanent goals that are designed to be concreted directly into the ground with no need for sockets.

Maintenance

If properly maintained, goal posts can last for many years, but general wear and tear or rust could reduce the life of your posts.

To protect against this, regular maintenance is essential. These checks should include inspecting fixtures and fittings to help prevent rust spots on steel posts, and using maintenance paint or spray when required. Every item supplied comes with a 1-year fair 'wear and tear' manufacturer's warranty.

We would strongly advise that where recommended nets are listed they are purchased with the goal to ensure best fit. The recommended nets for each model have been specifically tailored to fit those goals.

Football goal posts come in a variety of sizes and fittings for different needs. Take a look at our range to find the right type for your team.
