Soccer is easily one of the most widely played youth sports in America right now, and with the economy the way it is, purchasing equipment might be a little more financially challenging than it was before. The equipment needed for a game of soccer is really not all that much: a ball, shoes, shin-guards, and a goal. What is the most expensive? The goal. Below are a few steps for building a cost effective goal that can be used at home for practice or on a field for a game.
Materials needed (most if not all of these can be purchased at your local hardware store): First, you need a post hole digger to dig holes deep enough to place your goal-posts in. Next, you will need two 4×4 vertical bars and one 2×4 cross bar. Other miscellaneous materials that would be helpful include: a staple gun, tape measure, nails, cement mixture, a net, and a string to tie the net onto the bars. For your bars, you can use PVC, aluminum, or steel tubing (I think PVC is the best because it is the easiest to work with).
According to the Fédération Internationale de Football Association, or FIFA, the dimensions of a full-sized match play goal must be 24×8 feet, so take this into consideration when purchasing your materials and constructing your goal.
WARNING: I suggest that you do not use home-made goals if your child plays on full-sized goals as these can break and potentially seriously harm your child. Instead, it is suggested that you buy competitively priced, professionally made soccer goals from a reputable dealer.
Step 1: The first thing you need to do is get your post hole diggers and dig holes for your two vertical posts. Keep in mind that the stability of the entire goal rests on these holes, so be sure that you dig them well enough and deep enough as to ensure structural stability.
Step 2: Once your holes are dug, mix your concrete and pour it into the holes with the vertical bars in place. I suggest quick drying cement here because it is simple and more efficient.
Step 4: Find a friend! Here you will need to attach the cross bar to your goal, and it will be much easier if you have more than one person doing the job. A ladder might also come in handy, unless you’re Yao Ming, then you might be alright.
Step 4: Choose a net that best meets your needs. A net can be either permanent or replaceable. Make sure that you decide this ahead of time and fasten the net to the posts accordingly. Be advised, this job can be time consuming because of the many connections between the bars and the net that need to be made.
Step 5: Once the net is installed, test it out using a good quality soccer ball and a good quality leg! Make sure to also check the structural stability to ensure safety for you friends and family.
Making a goal is really not as hard as you think, as long as you have the time and patience to do it right!
A foosball table is a table-top game that is loosely based on soccer. The game, also known as table football, was invented by Harold Searles Thornton in 1922. Mr. Thornton’s inspiration for the toy was his avid support for British association football matches and he aimed to make a smaller version that could be played at home. Eventually, his uncle took table football to America where its popularity grew steadily.
Generally, foosball consists of eight rows of players, made out of wood or plastic, which are mounted on metal bars. Either two or four players can compete against each other, although some tables are built to accommodate more. The goal of the game is to use the horizontal bars to control your “team” and score more goals than your opponent. Each team controls a goalie, defense, midfield, and attack players.
Table football games are extremely popular fixtures as well. Having one in your home ensures that you and your friends will never have to worry about being bored. And apart from their entertainment value, the tables are also sought after decoration pieces. The different colors, sizes, and types of football tables ensures that you will be able to find one that works with your home’s interior. The older foosball tables are especially popular with enthusiasts and collectors. If you are lucky enough to own one of these items, make sure and take special care of them.
These objects are unfortunately prone to quite a bit of wear and tear and will occasionally require a bit of maintenance. First you will need to take apart the playing field. This includes unscrewing the metal bars which hold the players. To help yourself remember, later, how to reassemble the bars, consider taking a picture of the field beforehand.
You will next have to check all of the game’s moving pieces for damage. The foosball players, whether they are made out of plastic or wood, will most likely require a thorough cleaning and a fresh coat of paint. Other aspects of the game, such as the playing field and ball, will likely require some paint as well.
If one or more of the players is damaged beyond repair, you will have to order new ones. Many hobby shops and specialty websites sell replacement parts and cleaning supplies aimed at foosball tables. These include replacement balls, rubber bumpers, stop rings, and goalie nets. If any part of the game can’t be repaired, you can consider replacing them altogether.
Pay close attention to the legs and bottom of the football table and determine if these areas require any maintenance. If they are loose or wobbly, you may have to tighten or replace them. Depending on the state of the bottom, it may need a bit of sanding or reinforcing.
After all the cleaning is finished and the paint has dried, you can finish the refurbishment project by reassembling the fixture. Using the photograph you took beforehand, put the game’s playing field back together and reattach the players. Then, all that’s left is to start enjoying your toy once again.

World Cup Fever is beginning to reach high pitch, excuse the pun, throughout the world.
