7-a-side football or mini soccer is played using a 12ft wide x 6ft high football goal. These goals are the official recognised size for under 9s to under 12s football.
The 12 x 6ft goals are our most popular goal size and as well as being used for league football they are a popular size for use in gardens.
Seven a side football is played in FA leagues and schools throughout the UK. The game was introduced by the FA in the early 1990s and its popularity has increased since then. Because the goals and pitches are smaller the game allows young players to have more touches of the ball. This helps them to retain interest during a game and develop their skills as a player.
We have a range of Steel, Aluminium and Samba 7 v 7 football goals.
The Samba goals are very popular as they are strong whilst being lightweight and easy to transport. They all comply with BSi safety standard BS8462:2005. The Samba 12 x 6 Match goal is the FA recognised goal for mini soccer league use.
Steel and aluminium goals offer an alternative to the Samba Goals. They can be either socketed for permanent fixing or freestanding, allowing them to be used on any surface and moved around where necessary.
The freestanding goals will need to be anchored in compliance with the manufacturer’s recommendations in order to comply with safety standards.
We also have a full range of 9-a-side 9 v 9 goals in stock.
