Many high school and collegiate soccer programs share facilities with football and other activities. In these cases, it is vital that portable soccer goals are compatible with permanently installed football goalposts. Bison makes it an easy fit. As of 2008, all official-size (24-foot by 8-foot) Bison Shootout Soccer portable goals are compatible with gooseneck football goals. Compatibility allows soccer goals to be placed in front of gooseneck football goalposts by repositioning the soccer goal’s rear horizontal stabilizer bar. Now both sports can easily use the same goal line. This is especially critical for fields with permanent field markings.
