We at BioSec Group know that soccer is a great game, but security is definitely not. This is why we have developed and implemented the next generation security to the stadiums, where fans from 1 to 100 can enjoy the games without concerns.

A home team supporter is entering the stadium by using the “vein scanner” and the club’s fan card

We are developing innovative security solutions based on palm vein recognition, which is one of the most advanced and least intrusive biometric technologies, thus a perfect starting point for a high security solution. Basically, we measure the vein structure within the hand, which is absolutely unique for everyone, then using this data for personal authentication. In case of stadiums, spectators just simply put their hands above a “vein scanner” at one of the gates and if the person has a valid ticket and is not on the blacklist, then it takes only a blink of an eye to get inside.No more stolen or lost tickets, misused fan cards, lengthy queues or unauthorised accesses, which can be all achieved by the wave of the hand. With biometric authentication, we ensure 100% personalised tickets, thus troublemakers are kept outside the stadium with the highest certainty. We create a zero tolerance concept for violence, whether it is hooliganism or pyrotechnics, thus ensuring family-friendly stadiums, without additional costs. Despite being a next generation solution, the BioSec system can be easily used by anyone, regardless of age or abilities, thus spectators can equally enjoy the highest security level.

At the award-winning Groupama Arena more than 100 000 fans are registered in the BioSec system

The BioSec system achieved its goal by creating a family-friendly environment

With almost half a decade of experience in the world of soccer, specialized in mass authentication, we know that every stadium is unique, just like their needs. This is why we are ensuring customized solutions for our clients and working on to ensure the highest security level, without compromising the user experience to create family friendly stadiums. Whether it should be provided with RFID, barcode, NFC or be integrated with an existing access control solution, the BioSec system can provide both in a simple way.
