Freestanding VS Socketed Goal Posts
When it comes to football goals there are 2 major types of goals, these being freestanding and also socketed. As the name suggests, socketed goalposts require sockets in the ground which are normally submerged in concrete below the surface. Socketed goal posts are the most popular choice for clubs, public areas and other recreation grounds. This is because they can be left overtime without attendance due to being socketed in place, we would recommend getting an experienced installer to complete the full goalposts installation. Failure to socket the goal correctly not only becomes a hazard but also means it could be stolen much easier.
Similarly much like the name suggests, freestanding goals are the complete opposite of socketed, as they are in fact freestanding. Because the goal is freestanding it does allow mobility of the goal posts, should you wish to make your pitches smaller or simply to move the pitch. However, a negative of freestanding goal posts is the fact that they cannot be left out in the open unattended, as they are easily stolen due to not being held in place.
Whilst in play, freestanding football goalposts will require additional anchoring such as being tied to metal hooks in the ground, this is to ensure it doesn’t move if a budding Christiano Ronaldo sends a ball rocketing off the top right corner.
