COVID-19 and Returning to Sports

14.08.2020

Fortress has been working alongside over 150 teams worldwide to help ease fans back into stadiums and arenas when the time is right.

Here are five solutions we offer:

  • Contactless & NFC Ticketing: Latest generation technology allows fans to scan their own tickets with staff watching from a safe distance.
  • Color Coded Lanes: Measured boxes on floor and traffic light systems hold fans in a safe space.
  • Designated Gates: Spread the load by pre-assigning a ticket to a specific lane and entry scanner.
  • Health Questionnaires & Temperature Pre-Checks: Staff and accredited personnel are sent a questionnaire before attending the event, and have a temperature scan at a pre-check station.
  • Going Cashless: Easy to deploy cashless solutions remove points of close interaction between staff and the visitor.

Among the crowd-flow management protocols Fortress is recommending to its clients is a color-coded traffic light system of boxes or lanes in various floor areas to hold fans in a safe space and then release them through security and ticket scanning one group at a time. The system would include Resolution Zones, where visitors with ticketing issues could be directed, and Clean Zones, where visitors who consider themselves vulnerable because of their age or health can access the venue.

In an era of social distancing, fans will encounter a different experience once they are allowed back into stadiums and arenas. “Fans want that experience to be top-notch, period. That’s why teams are thinking about this,” said Britton Stackhouse Miller, senior vice president at Fortress U.S., a developer of engagement and integration systems with clients in European soccer, baseball, the NBA, NFL and NHL.
