Aluminium Football Goals

Aluminium Football Goals

Aluminium Goals made in the UK by Itsa Goal Posts Limited -

Aluminium goals are made in various designs to suit different surfaces. All freestanding aluminium goals require safe counter balance weights or alternative ground anchors to safely stabilise goals. Folding movable goals, Roller self weighted football goals,  fixed aluminium goals and portable goals are available from and the design differences are explained in more detail below to help you decide which goalpost is the most suitable.

Folding Aluminium Football Goals

The aluminium football goals and football wheel goalpost transporters are registered designs. Football goal registered design numbers : 5000197  5000198  5000199. The Itsa Goal Post lockable folding football goals are also a patented product

Before the introduction of the Itsa Goal post branded movable folding  goals with transporters, when folding goals were moved from the storage facility onto the football pitch the goals could be damaged if not moved with great care. Moving goals may have included trudging over uneven muddy grass roots football pitches. When moving folding goals the goal side frames may swing inwards and the corners have additional stresses, possibly damaging  the goals should the sides lever apart.

Itsa Goal Posts branded folding goal posts, include quick fitting goalpost transporters that slot in the upright. The goalpost transporter reduces stress on the goal frame, preventing sides splaying apart during the movement of goals.  This is much easier for club volunteers moving goalposts and increases the goalposts longevity.

Goalposts should always be used in accordance with the fitting instructions supplied. The full range of Itsa Goal Post branded goals goalpost assembly instructions can be viewed here

Freestanding  Aluminium Football Goals  - Movable Designs 

Other brands of football goals (not Itsa Goal Posts Ltd) are manufactured with mitred corners, the corners fix together with internal steel brackets. These goals may expand apart during the summer resulting in the the crossbar expanding more than posts creating expansion problems. This expansion may create unstable goalpost corners and if the corner bolts are not re tightened regularly the goals may be damaged when the goals are moved. 

Expansion problems  do not effect Itsa Goal Posts branded goals - with  fully welded goalpost corners. The goalposts sides are welded and quickly slot into crossbar and back bar and lock in position.  The photograph shows this goal design below with goalpost sides, crossbar and backbar laid on the ground.

Movable Aluminium Football Goals – Roller goals with weights – for artificial surfaces


We also supply movable aluminium football goals that include wheeled back bars. This goal is designed for use on artificial surfaces and as such require counter weight to balance the goals from toppling over; a requirement of the goalposts safety standards. The goals are available with this heavy counter balance weight integral to the goal back frame. The  goals are made with strengthening supports and is a factor why the roller goals are slightly more expensive. The Itsa Goal Post branded roller football goal has a  wheeled backbar at the rear of the goal  and the wheels are at the back in a safer position than at the sides of goals as seen on other makes of aluminium goalposts.

Movable Aluminium Football Goals – Roller goals without weights – for grass pitches

We also supply Roller aluminium goals without heavy integral counter balancing weight which are similar to a standard freestanding goal. When the goal is in position it requires anchoring with the multi-surface anchors provided as standard with goals.  The freestanding goals do not have the roller back bar but you can fit the optional wheel transporters if required to wheel goals out in position. The advantage of the separate goal transporters is that a set can be used an any number of different goals.
