SKIDATA Wins Product Innovation Award: NFC Ticketing via Apple Watch and iPhone at Allianz Arena at the 2019 Stadium Business Summit…

SKIDATA once again proves its stronghold as an industry-leading pioneer in the world of people access and control as the company took home the Product Innovation award at the 10th annual TheStadiumBusiness Summit for their NFC e-ticket solution.

SKIDATA and Apple offer a contactless, barcode-less wave of the iPhone for fast, frictionless entry- with no touch of a button. Tap+Go allows users to simply wave their phone near the reader, eliminating the search for tickets and need for an aligned barcode scan.

At Allianz Arena in Munich, Germany, the famed home of Bayern Munich Football Club (FCB), the NFC ticketing solution is already underway at the stadium, alongside SKIDATA turnstile gates.

In addition to Allianz Arena, in last spring the Banc of California Stadium in Los Angeles, CA, opened its doors for the newly stated Los Angeles Football Club (LAFC). Throughout their inaugural season, LAFC showcased a new SKIDATA access management solution, including pedestrian and parking access in addition to their SKIDATA and Apple-certified NFC mobile contactless solution.

Florian Schneeberger, vice president at SKIDATA states, “mobile contactless ticketing will revolutionize the events experience by ensuring a smooth entrance for guests in an industry where security and convenience are top priority.”
