Upgraded pitches at Valentine Sports Park feature PILA goal posts

Upgraded pitches at Valentine Sports Park feature PILA goal posts
March 30, 2015

As preferred supplier of football goal posts to Football NSW, PILA sport has been the sole supplier of goal posts and coaches boxes for the recently redeveloped Valentine Sports Park in Western Sydney.

The $22 million project has created a new ‘home of football’ for Football NSW, including two FIFA approved artificial turf fields, two standard natural fields and an international standard stadium surfaced showpiece field, along with administrative buildings, specialised facilities and upgraded accommodation.

In line with Football NSW's requirements, PILA supplied their Stadium Goal post and Coaches Boxes for the synthetic surfaced Fields 2 and 3 as well as Field 1, the primary natural field. For Fields 4 and 5, the other natural fields, PILA supplied semi-permanent football goal posts.

PILA pioneered and is the only manufacturer and supplier of stadium football goal posts in Australia, providing elite competition goal post package suitable for televised games.

The unique base frame of their Stadium Goals offer several benefits, particularly for synthetic surfaces with:

The unique base frame of their Stadium Goals offer several benefits, particularly for synthetic surfaces with: 

• Nets attaching to the base frame – with no need for pegs to hold the nets down
• A base frame that hinges up and locks into upright position for easy field maintenance

Additionally the package includes the finest nets available plus black free-hanging net supports.

Coaches Boxes
The sleek design of PILA's Coaches Boxes was the perfect fit for the style of the upgraded modern surrounds at Valentine Sports Park. They are designed with fully enclosed back wall, sides and roof to offer maximum weather protection and are a secure, bolted-down semi-permanent structure.

PILA's staff have been very hands-on with this project, with PILA Group Managing Director, Reece Wooldridge overseeing the installation of all products and several team members involved in various stages of the project.

PILA worked closely with HG Sports Turf, with whom they also partnered with during the recent playing surface upgrades at Hunter Stadium, to ensure that the products were properly installed for the different surfaces. 

Commenting on the Valentine Sports Park project and PILA’s commitment to sport, Reece Wooldridge stated “PILA is passionate about sport and recognises the inherent value of supporting and developing grassroots football, which is why we manufacture a full range of goal posts from Futsal and Junior Football to Stadium Goals, providing goal posts to fit in with any budget.”
