Football Queensland (FQ) is delighted to announce Australia’s largest goal post manufacturer PILA has re-signed for a further term as FQ’s official goal posts provider and preferred supplier of football goal posts to FQ zones and clubs.
With goal post safety paramount to FQ and PILA, all PILA football goal posts are Certified Australian Made and built to Australian standards, including the mandatory Australian Standard AS 4866.1-2007 for Moveable (portable) Goal Posts.
“We are delighted to continue our partnership with PILA and recommend and endorse the quality and safety of PILA goal posts to all Queensland clubs,” FQ CEO Richard Griffiths said.
PILA Managing Director Reece Wooldridge said he was excited about the partnership with FQ and the benefits it will bring Queensland clubs.
“The agreement includes numerous benefits and savings to clubs, including discounted goal post pricing and exclusive product offers,” Wooldridge said.
Wooldridge said there was concern around the sub-standard quality and non-compliance of some imported goal posts.
“Many clubs are not aware of the implications of buying goal posts that are not compliant with Australian standards,” Wooldridge said.
“Buying Australian-made goal posts that have been tested and are compliant with Australian standards protects the safety of players and the liability of the clubs.
“The risks of purchasing imported and untested products is too high, and the Australian-made products actually offer better value for money with the high quality of the fittings and parts, superior structural components and long warranties.”
PILA provides express replacement parts, correct safety and servicing advice and an industry leading seven-year Manufacturer’s Warranty on all goal posts.
