Our awesome aluminium FORZA football goals are making an appearance at European club football’s season-ending showstopper.
Cristiano Ronaldo, Gigi Buffon, local favourite Gareth Bale and a whole host of the world’s finest footballers are heading to Cardiff for the 2017 UEFA Champions League final as Real Madrid tackle Juventus.
And Net World Sports will also perform at the pinnacle of club football too, with a pair of our premium 16ft x 7ft FORZA Alu60 goalposts selected to be used during the four-day fan festival running throughout the prestigious event.
Our goals have been installed on a floating 3G football pitch that has been specially built in Cardiff Bay to host Friday’s highly-anticipated ‘UEFA Ultimate Champions Match’ before Saturday’s main event between the Spanish and Italian champions.

Real Madrid legend Emilio Butragueno and Dutch master Ruud Gullit will manage two teams made up of some of the all-time greats of European football, including Ryan Giggs, Luis Figo, Marcel Desailly, Ian Rush, Clarence Seedorf, and Roberto Carlos.
One of our sturdy ball stop systems has also been erected on the perimeter of the temporary pitch. Our heavy duty ball stop netting and aluminium posts have a crucial to ensure none of the superstars’ wayward shots on goal end up in the bay. While coaches and managers will also be catered for by a pair of our professional-style football team shelters and dugouts.

In addition to the Ultimate Champions Match, the floating pitch will also stage a deaf football friendly international, walking football, matches involving refugee teams from Cardiff, Swansea and Newport, and youth age tournaments, plus a special match between popular online team Hashtag United and a BT Sport selection including former Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard.
It’s no surprise to us why the FORZA Alu60s have earned a call-up to such a prestigious event. Net World Sports is a FA suitable goalpost supplier and both our Alu60 and Alu110 aluminium football goals have passed strict independent BS EN Safety Standards testing.
The FORZA Alu60 range is available in a range of sizes from 6ft x 4ft right the way up to full-size 24ft x 8ft. Manufactured from lightweight yet durable 60mm diameter reinforced aluminium, the goals incorporate a quick release detachable back bar and folding side frames so they are incredibly easy to move in and out of position, making them perfect training or match goals for senior and junior teams.
