What material are English Premier League football nets made from?

I'm doing some research and am keen to know and better still, who makes nets.

  • Generally, polyethylene. Will answer properly if I get time later.

    This is not an answer, but I think it's an interesting comment. The Laws of the game, located here: fifa.com/mm/Document/FootballDevelopment/Refereeing/02/36/01/11/…, do not actually require a net. They just say that nets may be used as long as they are properly supported and do not interfere with the goalkeeper.

Net goal should be made of hemp, jute, nylon or polypropylene.

Here some commercial links: 1 - 2 and some more info (take a lok at goals section)


The material mostly used is high quality square mesh cotton material which ensures that it resists wear and tear. Hope this helps!

    For professional matches? In any case, please provide a link or quote from a reputable third party which supports your assertion.
