Rotating Football Goal

The Problem: Combination Football/Soccer Fields

  • Ricochet: Which crossbar did the soccer ball hit? Is it in, or is it out?
    • In Play: The top of the football goal crossbar is only 24 inches above the soccer goal crossbar leaving a space of just 16 inches. The area directly above the soccer crossbar is “in play” in soccer. The entire ball must be over the entire line, including the goal line to be out. A football goal post directly above the soccer goal is actually in the field of play in soccer.
    • Corner Kicks and Crosses: A corner kick or crossed ball hitting the football goal post creates the situation where a soccer referee has to blow the whistle to call a play “dead” for a ball that would still be in play under normal circumstances.
    • High Shots, Parrying & Tipping Over the Bar: A soccer referee often has to make quick and difficult decisions that can happen in a split second, and can determine the outcome of a game:
      • Was the 90 mph shot blast off the soccer crossbar or the football crossbar, or both before coming back into the field of play?
      • The soccer goalkeeper stretched to parry or tip a high ball over the soccer crossbar and the ball came rebounding back into the field where a forward pounces on the rebound and puts the ball in the back of the net — Is it a goal? Did the ball hit the soccer crossbar, the football crossbar, or both?
  • Shorter Soccer Field
    • Pulling the soccer goal in 2 yards at each end of the field reduces the size of the field by 12 feet. The bigger the field, the more room a soccer team has to create space and move the ball.
  • Additional Line Stripe in the middle of the football end zone. This is another undesirable result when pulling the soccer goals in. The additional line makes the field look too busy, and football coaches don’t like it!
