My husband and I went personally to Zurich to meet with FIFA, and showed them a video of the actual goal being pushed over with my hand {500lb goalpost} and asked them to change their rules for the United States since we have very few designated soccer fields where goalposts can be permanently anchored down. They told us their annual meeting was coming up and they would present this to the other board members. This was in 1994 September. After their annual meeting the next March, they were all in agreement to add to their rule of the goalposts for safety and liability awareness.

FIFA bylaws for goal post standards.

Refer to subtopics of the goal area, goals, and safety of The Field of Play.
