Abel Sports’ Australian made goal posts in the spotlight

Abel Sports’ Australian made goal posts in the spotlight
June 16, 2021

Leading sports post, goal and flag poles supplier Abel Sports is continuing working through the difficulties of ongoing lockdowns becoming the norm at its Melbourne headquarters.

Fortunately, Abel Sports has been able to keep operating in order to support its clients in the construction and sporting industries.

Abel Sports General Manager John Cann has also been participating in a media promotion for the Australian Made Campaign giving interviews on various radio stations throughout Australia.

Cann has highlighted the advantage of using Australian made sporting equipment on sporting grounds not only for local councils, but also for major stadiums that have last minute requests that can only be fulfilled by locally manufactured products.

With recent Victorian Government lockdown measures seeing AFL and NRL games relocated away from Melbourne, Abel Sports goal posts have been in place to accommodate fixtures in their new locations.

Abel Sports NRL goal posts are installed at the Queensland Country Bank Townsville Stadium where the State of Origin game was moved to, Optus Stadium Perth where the AFL Dreamtime game was played and also the SCG where the annual Queens Birthday AFL game between Collingwood and Melbourne will be played.

Abel Sports are proud of their Australian made goal posts that are ‘made by Australians for Australians”, with the same quality manufactured product appearing not only in major stadiums, but also in suburban sports grounds and school grounds throughout Australia.
