There’s An App Called 'Rent A Keeper' Which Helps Football Teams Find Goalkeepers
Two entrepreneurs and goalkeepers have invented an app called 'Rent A Keeper' which helps football teams find goalkeepers for competitive matches and kickabouts.
The two lads from Brazil have found a solution to missing a goalkeeper for football games in the form of an innovative app.
'Rent A Keeper' already has more than 3,700 registered goalkeepers from all over Brazil since the app launched last August, and more than 1,600 calls for matches have been made by the app alone.
They also have a Uber style 5 star rating system to score how keepers performed on match day.

Per Brazilian outlet Hypeness: "The system is simple and straightforward: you can sign up through the app as a goalkeeper or as someone who needs a goalkeeper for your game.
"The application crosses supply and demand, together with information such as date, time and place, and offers as many archers as necessary to defend the goal of the contracting matches. According to Toaldo, there are one million matches in rental courts per month in Brazil, of which 70% do not have a fixed goalkeeper."
The app has three value options all related to playing time. For 60 minutes, the amount to be paid for each call is R$30 (£4.80).
For 90 minutes, R$45 (£7.20) and for 120 minutes, R$60 (£9.60) with the goalkeeper pocketing 60% of the value of each call.
