Pali invites friends when a game of football is about to happen nearby and shows them where it's happening so they can join in

Uniform, a design studio with a focus on brand identity, wanted to have less people stuck to their screens and more people outside in the fresh air. To do this, they created Pali, a mobile European football goalpost that sends out invitations to friends’ phones asking them to join.

Pali comes with a companion application that maps the location of the device. When the magnets holding the two goalposts together break apart as the game gets set up, the application sends out invitations with the location attached. When the goalposts snap back together, another message goes out to notify all invitees the game has finished.

The app is meant to act as a social hub, getting friends and strangers to come together to play sport in a community setting.
