Football VIC Official Partner
PILA is the long-standing exclusive football goal post partner to Football Victoria
PILA is proud to be the chosen long-term and exclusive Official Goal Post Partner to Football Victoria.
Since the beginning of our goal post partnership in 2018, we have supported football across the state of Victoria at all levels of play, from grassroots through to the National Premier Leagues. We also contribute significantly to the equipment needs of Victorian Football facilities including major stadiums, elite venues, council fields, clubs and schools. And Football Victoria’s affiliated clubs and schools network have access to PILA’s exclusive promotional goal post offers and priority partner benefits.
As Football Victoria is the state governing body for soccer in Victoria, goal post safety and compliance is paramount and with equipment one of the largest areas of risk, it’s important for purchasing decision-makers understand what safety and compliance features to look for when purchasing football goal posts. PILA’s football 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 Victoria 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 FIFA, FA 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 and imported goal posts for sale in Australia, buyers are often drawn to the cheaper price tag however, cheaply constructed products are not built to last. Connecting joins and bolts will rust and deterioriate, and the powdercoat will peel. Porable wheels will seize, nets will rot and fall apart, and your reasonably new goal posts will soon need to be replaced. Yet the most concerning risk of imported goal posts iss that they are not built to mandatory Australian Standards as they are not constructed here so the overseas factory is not required to
often base their purchasing decision on the ‘cheap’ price tag without considering the liability risk they take by putting goals that are not built to mandatory Australian Standards on the pitch.
In addition, imported goal posts often only last 1 season before ending up in the bin, with clubs hard-earned money wasted and no avenue for recourse as the product has a very short warranty and the overseas supplier is unwilling to assist. Why would they when they don’t have a vested interest in Australian clubs? We hear this story on a weekly basis from clubs that are in the unfortunate position of having to replace near-new imported goals after such a short time.
When you purchase from PILA, you receive a 7-year warranty, a certificate of compliance and you are investing in high-quality equipment that meets FIFA, FA and Australian Standards. You can see our tried and tested products on local fields nationally and you can rely on the fact we are, by Australian law, required to manufacture safe, compliant products that are fit for purpose. And because we know you play hard week-in week-out, PILA goal posts are designed to stand up to punishment outside in the Australian elements, year-in year-out.
