Replacement of Unsafe Goalposts

Are your goalposts unsafe?

Did you know that the Football Foundation Small Grants Scheme offers grant of up to 50% to replace your unsafe goalposts.

To apply for the replacement of unsafe goalposts through this scheme, your current goalposts will need to be in an unsafe condition. The size of the replacement goalposts does not have to be like-for-like e.g. you can replace 7v7 goals with 9v9 goals if they are unsafe, or do not comply with the relevant British Standards. 


Reference should be made to the advice on Goalpost Safety contained within:

 The FA Guide to Pitch and Goalpost Dimensions  (pages 8 and 9)


Grants are only available for the replacement of unsafe goalposts and not for the initial purchase of goalposts.

The Football Foundation has set grant limits which identify the maximum grant available dependant on the size of the goalposts.


2.44m x 7.32m (11v11) - a maximum 50% grant up to a maximum grant value of £750 per set of goalposts
2.13m x 6.40m (11v11) - a maximum 50% grant up to a maximum grant value of £750 per set of goalposts
2.13m x 4.88m (9v9) - a maximum 50% grant up to a maximum grant value of £500 per set of goalposts
1.83m x 3.66m (7v7 / 5v5) - a maximum 50% grant up to a maximum grant value of £500 per set of goalposts

If you are unable to reclaim VAT, this should be included in your total project cost.

You will need to identify the goalposts you wish to purchase from the approved list of suppliers and submit the online application form detailing the chosen supplier, product name, cost (including delivery, installation and VAT if applicable) and product code.

The goalposts will need to be purchased from the approved list of suppliers below:
