About the Studio
GOALS is a small start-up with big dreams!
Humble in the way we work; embracing that skilled and passionate people are the heart and core of our studio. Not humble in our objective; creating the best football game in the world.
Recognizing there wasn’t a fast paced, competitive, multiplayer focused football game on the market we decided to change that. Let’s bring football into esports for real! Bridging the gap between the real world and the digital, we’re building something that is more than a game.
Our community is the most important voice, and we want to give every colleague and gamer a feeling of ownership.
