Brazil 2014: It's Not Over Yet
In the New Year the History of Goal Nets will begin focusing on our campaign to have FIFA install Brazilian-style L-supports for the games of the Brazil World Cup finals in 2014.
We don't doubt the scale of our task. Of the 12 host stadia, five are being upgraded, five are being rebuilt and two are brand new. We expect all will celebrate their revamped, state of the art status by installing state of the art boxnets and, if unchecked, you won't be able to differentiate a game from the 2014 finals with the finals of 2010 (or 2006, or 2002, or 1998).
But it's not over yet. We take heart that the goals in the Selecao's last home game of 2012 were scored into Brazilian L-supports, at Atletico GO.
We believe that with hard work we can ensure the goals at the 2014 finals are also scored into L-supports.
If you haven't already done so, please sign our Petition.
The History of Goal Nets wishes you and yours the very best for Christmas and the New Year.
