IoT app for sports

A revolutionary approach to help goalkeepers become professional soccer players using smart gloves!

Oliver Kahn, the famous German soccer player and a titan of the sports industry, partnered with us for a smart sports app to help the young generation of goalkeepers!
2019 - 2021



the challenge

GoalPlay aspired to democratize professional coaching and goalkeeping training, making it accessible beyond the elite. 

Our challenge was to develop a digital solution that eases the coaching processes and empowers trainees to take charge of their own improvement journey by identifying the skills they need to improve and offering the right training exercises through the app. 

the solution

To bring GoalPlay's vision to life, first, we defined the product strategy and features, then harnessing the power of the Internet of Things, we built an Android app integrated with smart sports gloves. 
These gloves communicate via Bluetooth and contain an AI-powered sensor that intelligently detects the trainee's movements.

The app enables users to create profiles and pinpoint areas for improvement. Its algorithm then automatically matches the identified skills with corresponding exercises, all tailored to the trainee's chosen proficiency level. 

With a freemium business model, GoalPlay offers subscription-based access to various features, including goalkeeping training objectives, distinct training levels, and an array of exercise formats (videos, training plans, comprehensive exercise libraries).

As trainees embark on their exercise program, GoalPlay supplements their journey with personalized insights and performance metrics, empowering them to enhance their game in real-time.
