Sports have always been synonymous to fighting problems of the youth. The idea is that you are so busy playing sports that you are spending less time in vice activities and you generally lead a healthier life.

Golazo is a business that has decided to make its mission to fight obesity and gangsterism through sports. It does things differently by understanding the intrinsic motivation that drives the youth: the need to compete and be better than peers.

Through Golazo’s online platform, you can form a team and have your team performance through a league recorded. The only way to increase statistics is to play more games against other teams.

To date, Golazo has around 200 teams and more than 400 individual players registered on the system, with more registrations coming in daily. In the future, Golazo plans to integrate a player health tracking system to gamify weight loss and incentivise fitness competition.
