EVANSVILLE, IN (March 26, 2013) – Goalrilla America’s leading brand of basketball systems and sports training equipment , today announced the launch of its new GAMEMAKER, an innovative line of air pressurized, durable and transportable soccer goals.

Utilizing its proprietary BaroForce technology, Goalrilla GAMEMAKER gives users the ability to pump up a sturdy goal allowing them to take t heir game or practice anywhere. Reaching its full size within just 90 seconds, the GAMEMAKER frame holds up to shots like a steel goal, yet it is light for transport ability and flexible enough to give safely to prevent injuries in the event of goal post related collisions.

"We are pleased to announce the launch of our GAMEMAKER line of air pressurized soccer goals," said David Vogrin, director of marketing, Goalrilla." We have been able to deliver a unique soccer goal that has the appearance and playability of a traditional goal with the added benefits of safety and ease of transport. It is the only soccer goal of its kind currently available in North America and we believe it will reduce goal post related injuries while giving players and coaches the ability to take their game anywhere."

Goalrilla GAMEMAKER is built using an interior, flexible layer of PVC.
