Fast-tracking football entry with facial biometrics

Entering a soccer stadium or any mass event was an experience that required a good deal of time and patience. Until facial biometrics came along, now it could be fast, convenient, and secure.

In a summer without a World Cup, soccer fans have had to resort to the usual distractions to get through these weeks without competition:

  • The rumors of the transfer market
  • The presentation of new kits
  • The season ticket renewal campaign

But it’s over:  LaLiga is back, and the illusion returns.

We are ready to recover the routine and the liturgy every time our team plays at home. We put on our jerseys, prepare a sandwich for halftime, meet up with our usual friends for a pre-match preview, and make sure we have our ID cards in our wallets… Well, the latter is not always necessary.

Facial recognition, the quick option to enter a stadium

Many Osasuna fans do not need to take this last step. Their season ticket can stay at home, and they will have no problem accessing El Sadar. Why? Because they will do it with their faces and by the fast track.

Since last season, El Sadar has had eight dasGate accesses allowing members who wish to enter the stadium using their facial biometrics instead of passing their season ticket through the usual turnstile. This system allows up to 20 fans per minute to enter the stadium, avoiding queues and crowds. This unprecedented smooth access rate represents a historic change for fans and stadium managers.

A voluntary access system activated in 3 easy steps

Members who wish to use this system only have to complete a registration, which can be done online from any device. All they have to do is scan their ID card, and their club season ticket and take a selfie. From then on, they will be able to access the venue, either with their face or with their physical season ticket, whichever they prefer.

A faster, more comfortable, secure way of access that will always be voluntary. What if one day I can’t go to a game and I want to leave my season ticket to a family member or friend? No problem, you can continue to do so as before—technology at the service of people.

Biometric access an option for all clubs and organizations

The innovative and avant-garde spirit of C.A. Osasuna was endorsed when it received the award for Best Stadium in the World in 2021. A new, wholly remodeled stadium that incorporates the best technology at all levels and access systems.

Being the first team to incorporate facial biometrics in its stadium earned it significant recognition, such as a nomination for an award from The Stadium Business, in which it competed against world-class clubs such as the Brooklyn Nets, Inter Milan, and Burnley.

The Premier League, Calcio, the NBA, the NFL, the Ivy League… Osasuna was the first club to rely on this innovation, but it won’t be the last. dasGate accesses are available for any stadium or venue, both for sporting use and for any event. The benefits for the club and its members are clear: it is the easiest and safest way to access a soccer game.
