Match-Point Soccer Scoring Systems introduces a new soccer product

Match Point, a 35-year-old Wisconsin manufacturer of tennis accessories has introduced the new Small Soccer Scoring System that make soccer score displays quick and easy.

The small soccer-scoring system consisting of two sets of 4" x 8" plastic flip cards, one in red and the other in black. The cards show the score from zero to nine on both sides.

Goal! comes with an aluminum crossbar and "Home" and "Away" labeled identification cards. An aluminum rod -- 24" high and 3/8" in diameter - supports the cards. The rod is easily inserted into the ground. It's designed for U-6 to U-12 games, and keeps parents and players informed at a glance.

Scores are easily updated by the assistant referee, ball boy or girl, or a parent. This unit is designed for larger playing fields, such as those used by adults or JV and varsity high school teams.

The Small Soccer Scoring System can be ordered at Match Point through phone, mail or website. For further details, call 800-670-4964 or check our Website, www.match-point.biz
