We now have three types of Samba Goals for sale at The Soccer Store.
In brief this is the difference between the three.

The Training Goal. (Fun Goals)

This range is unique to The Soccer Store and is made for us by Samba. These are our entry level goals but still retain the quality that you would expect from the British Made Samba Goals.
The goals are only available without the locking system and do not come with any stickers on the front posts. The design of the goal is exactly the same as the standard Samba goal. They come with a full, no quibble 12 month guarantee. We would recommend this range for garden or training use

The Original Samba Goals

These are the original Samba Goals which set the standards for portable goal posts and have now been around for over 10 years. These UPVC goals are strong and quick and easy to erect. They all comply with the relevant British Standards and come with our no quibble guarantee. They are available with or without the Samba locking system. The goals comply to all of the relevant British Standards.
The locking system is an option available on Samba Goal Posts. It is a simple and effective securing mechanism use to lock all of the pieces of the goal together.
The round plastic plunger on one piece pushes down and then as the two pieces are pushed together pops out through the hole on the opposing joining piece to ensure that the connecting posts simply will not budge even after the fiercest shots.
Again we would recommend this range for garden or training use.

The Samba Match Goals

These were introduced to comply to all of the latest FA requirements for goals to be used in match play. The main difference of these goals is that they run back further at the bottom, thus creating a larger footprint making them a sturdier goal. All of these goals come with the Samba locking system. We would recommend these goals for match play although they are bought by a lot of customers for garden use.
