Northumberland FA welcomes new inflatable pitch supplier
Northumberland FA is delighted to announce a new partnership with Bazooka Goal, who supply innovative inflatable pitches developed specially for small sided football.
The pitches can be used for training, games and tournaments, and helps to develop players by increasing the time the ball is in play, plus giving players maximum touches of the ball.
Mike Melvin from Bazooka Goal]says: “3v3UK Airpitch football is intense and all players regardless of skill level are actively involved. It has proved to be the most effective training environment for young players, as the ball is rolling for up to 96% of the time, minimising down time and keeping young players active and involved.”
Northumberland FA Coach Education Officer, Gary Middleton, adds: “Small sided games help players to boost their confidence. We’re delighted to be partnering with AirPitch and taking delivery of our own inflatable pitch which we’ll be using extensively in our coaching and education programmes.”
