Golzinho

Golzinho is a portable pop-up goal for Brazilian street football.

While regular goals anchor into soft grass with pegs, Golzhino has two tanks on either side of the base. Users fill these tanks with either sand or water to provide weight, ensuring that the goal is stable on hard surfaces. The crossbar, two posts and base come apart with quickly released levers, while the tanks empty to allow for easy transport when the game is over. Golzinho continues the long tradition of Brazilian street football, while enabling a more authentic and flexible experience.
