Brimbank City Council

“Council is using PILA goal posts at its sports grounds due to their light weight and their ability to be removed and installed on a seasonal basis. Customer Service from PILA has been great so far. Staff are always available to offer assistance and are generally very helpful.”

The City of Greater Bendigo

“The City of Greater Bendigo use the goal posts supplied and manufactured by PILA for our Sports fields for the following reasons: High levels of customer service and prompt delivery times are provided by PILA as well as excellent after-market assistance when needed; the posts manufactured by PILA are easy to install due to their light weight construction and the materials used; PILA has an excellent warranty program and can provide engineering specifications for each style of goal posts which is essential for ensuring the safety for our users and the general public; all goal posts provided by PILA meet the standards of the relevant sporting association including the AFL Victoria; using PILA for our goal post upgrade program ensures the style and quality of goal posts used for our Sports fields is of the highest standard and uniform across our grounds which assists with our ongoing compliance and maintenance; PILA is an Australian company.”

Paul, City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder

“I would like to pass on my sincere appreciation toward your efforts in arranging delivery of the new goal posts. Taking into account the thousands of km’s of distance between your factory and Kalgoorlie, you arranged delivery in a timely manner and the way your company handled the issues we had with damaged freight, I feel was outstanding. We have received positive feedback from our staff in regard to manual handling of the lightweight posts and we look forward to doing business with you in the future.”

Nick, Gold Coast Suns

“The PILA goal posts are fantastic and have added a new element to the footy ground. The posts are easy to handle and light to manoeuvre.”

Peter, Kenmore Bears AFC

“We purchased PILA’s goal posts for the Kenmore Bears Senior Club. The posts have already been put through some rigorous testing by having some 100kg plus players run into them with no damage whatsoever. I would recommend any club seriously consider purchasing PILA goals for a variety of reasons and am more than happy to discuss my experience using PILA goals with any club looking to make a purchase.”

Chris, Everton Wolves JAFC

“Our dealings with PILA Sports Equipment have been both a pleasurable and enjoyable experience from the quote to the delivery of our goal posts. We had excellent communications and PILA were the only business we dealt with that worked with us from start to finish.”


We manufacture professional, commercial AFL goal posts for all levels of play and our goal posts are used at stadiums, elite venues, council fields, clubs and schools nationally.


Goal post safety and compliance is paramount, and with equipment one of the largest areas of risk, it’s important that purchasing decision makers understand what safety and compliance features to look for when purchasing AFL goal posts. PILA’s AFL goal posts come with a comprehensive document package including an industry leading 7-year warranty, a certificate of compliance, technical drawings, installation and assembly guides.

You can see our tried and tested goal posts on local fields thoughout Australia and you can rely on the fact that we are required by Australian law to manufacture safe, compliant products that are fit for purpose. When you purchase from PILA you are investing in high-quality equipment that meets AFL, VFL and Australian Standards. And because we know you play hard week-in week-out, PILA goal posts are designed to stand up to the harsh Australian environment year-in, year-out.


With many non-compliant goal posts for sale in Australia, purchasers run the risk of buying goal posts that are not built to Australian Standards. When products are manufactured cheaply, quality and safety processes are generally not mandated by stringent Australian quality and safety standards.

Buyers will often question a higher price but not a lower one, yet what level of quality comes with a cheaper product? Market research has shown goal posts made from steel pipe have welding joins and bolts that quickly rust and deterioriate and powdercoat that peels.

Cheaply constructed products are not built to last in the harsh Australian environment and will soon need to be replaced, wasting your investment. This is why inferior goal posts have a very short warranty period. Yet the most concerning aspect with steel goal posts is that if they are not built to Australian Standards, the liability risk you take by purchasing and using non-compliant goal posts is significant.

A manufacturer supplying a Certificate of Compliance must be able to provide independently verified test results for the certificate to be valid. Some steel goal posts currently sold in Australia have not been independently tested and are supplied with unverified compliance certificates. Buyers should seek immediate advice from the ACCC if a supplier is selling goal posts in Australia and they cannot provide independent testing documentation verifying their compliance to Australian Standards.

It’s never been more important to buy Australian than now.
