Dad’s DIY backyard soccer field becomes viral sensation

Now that’s one way to keep yourself occupied during lockdown!

A genius Dad has turned his backyard into a mini soccer field for his son *cough cough* during the coronavirus pandemic.

With basically everything including club sports cancelled due to COVID-19 restrictions, kids (and adults) have understandably been going a little crazy being stuck at home.


In a bid to keep his son active and occupied, Mick Duffy decided to transform his backyard into a homemade soccer field… and we have to admit, it’s pretty impressive!

The man, from Scotland, took to social media to share photos of his project, and understandably, it has since gone viral.

He used white paint to draw the lines on the grass and even had a set of goals and corner flags to finish it all off.

The image of the DIY soccer field has already received more than 24,000 likes and hundreds of comments since being shared online yesterday.

“Good one Mick how much for a season ticket?” one person commented.

“How clever is that! Cracking effort Mick,” wrote another.

Others also shared photos of their homemade soccer fields.
