Levi’s Stadium announces partnership for identity and security services

The San Francisco 49ers has announced a multi-year partnership with Idemia to promote and implement identity and security services from IdentoGo at Levi’s Stadium. In addition to offering TSA Precheck enrollment capabilities at 49ers home games, IdentoGo will equip the Californian stadium with biometric-based technology to assist in fan experience and security in the near future.

“We’re always looking for innovative ways to enhance security at Levi’s Stadium and IdentoGo’s technology complements our efforts as we strive to provide expedited entry for pre-approved customers,” said Jim Mercurio, 49ers vice president of stadium operations and Levi’s Stadium general manager, in a stadium statement.

“We look forward to working with IdentoGo to jointly deploy the first-ever Trusted Fan Program. We plan on implementing the program in stages and are excited about the possibilities they bring toward enhancing the fan experience at Levi’s Stadium.”

“At Idemia, we make it our mission to protect people and places with innovative and convenient solutions so that security doesn’t get in the way of enjoying free time. This is what we are already doing for millions of Americans already using the TSA Precheck program to travel safely,” said Didier Lamouche, CEO of Idemia.

“We are very excited to partner with such a progressive sports organization in technology to bring 49ers fans TSA Precheck and outfit Levi’s Stadium with cutting-edge biometric solutions to help them better serve their fans.”

The 49ers will test options to streamline fan entrance into Levi’s Stadium, enhance the fan experience inside the stadium, and look at the implementation of biometrics at point of sale.

“Being located in Silicon Valley mandates that our organization have a close relationship with pioneering technology companies and Idemia certainly delivers on that characterization,” said Brent Schoeb, 49ers vice president of corporate partnerships.

“The launch of their TSA Precheck enrollment for 49ers fans who visit Levi’s Stadium is just the beginning of our work with them to further enhance the guest experience at Levi’s Stadium.”
