Edit:
Do NOT get  this net I sadly learned that the aditional foot and a half added by the elbows throws off dimensions. I am sure there is still a net that will fit out there somewhere.

The depth is five and a half feet so that would not work.

i lost my account so this is L.messi, but my name says FC boise. So do you have any other ideas on nets
could you make this on a larger scale? like international size?

you would have a major sagging problem it could even snap under the weight i never got a net for this i just use it without and it sags so i dont think it would work good luck
oh. thanks

Lightweight and cheap!!  Can be designed for take-apart/ indoor use.  As far as the net... you have to cut more off the pipes (18" ) to allow for the extra length of the elbows. Piece of cake!
Here a link to a smaller portable pvc goal: www.schoolyardpuck.com/2010/01/pvc-hockey-goal.html It was made for hockey but could probably be used for soccer as well.

This looks good. The great thing about soccer is you don't need anything more than something round and some markers for the goal. Good job (and nice lawn) L
