Last month MH Goals had the privilege of attending the opening of The Nest, a football facility run by Norwich City Community Sports Foundation (CSF).
As part of our sponsorship we supplied The Nest with two pairs of Pro Stadium wheeled 24×8 football goals, and seven pairs of self-weighted goals at various sizes. These were in addition to four Pro Team Shelters, ball stop posts and netting, and enough corner poles and flags to kit out all seven pitches, ensuring the facility has safe, quality goals and sports equipment.
MH Goals has been a business partner of the CSF since 2016, and so we were delighted to be able to help them with this new enterprise, becoming an Official Supporter of The Nest in the process.
The Nest is designed to be a sporting hub from which the CSF can reach an extra 12,000 people a year. The opening ceremony marked the completion of Phase One which included the construction of seven grass football pitches as well as the renovation of the existing clubhouse, and the installation of residential bunk boxes.
In the first few weeks over 2,000 people enjoyed the pitches and clubhouse at The Nest, including delighted young footballers who attended a special Grant Holt Soccer School.
The CSF is an organisation attached to Norwich City FC, which aims to help people achieve their goals by delivering quality, innovative services through football and sport. The plan for later phases will see an indoor sports hall, gymnasium, floodlit 3G football pitch, and classroom facilities added to the site, and increase footfall to over 300,000 visits every year. It will be the only community-focused sports hub of its kind in the East of England.
“It’s fantastic to be part of a project like this that seeks to make football accessible to all, regardless of age, ability or background,” said MH Goals MD Mark Harrod. “It’s already in great shape, and we are looking forward to being part of the next phase.”
