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.
