KIKOFF Lakemba Scores PILA Futsal Goal Posts
With around 120,000 social participants in futsal competitions across Australia, it’s clear that this abridged version of the beautiful game is only growing in popularity. Despite the misnomer “Indoor Soccer”, futsal actually developed outdoors and is still played in many outdoor settings.
At KIKOFF’s newest outdoor facility in Lakemba they have just installed the highest quality synthetic turf with floodlighting to provide users with a safe, level playing surface that can be used in any weather at any time. The pitches also have a cushioned infill that protects players should they fall and reduces the risk of ligament and torsion injuries. They have even gone the extra mile using light green coloured rubber to reduce the surface temperature on hot days!
This state-of-the-art centre is equipped with four pitches available for casual hire already, with leagues and coaching kicking off in 2015.
With a reputation for manufacturing the safest futsal goal posts and a proven track record working with synthetic pitches, PILA was approached to supply the four sets of semi-permanent futsal goal posts required. They might be a fraction of the size of a football goal post, but futsal goals must still meet stringent safety standards set by FIFA and FFA for Small Sided Games (SSG). PILA’s aluminium futsal goal posts exceed all the standards and are designed and manufactured to last for an extended period of time outdoors in Australian conditions.
