IDEMIA to equip Levi’s Stadium with biometrics-based technology, deploy trusted fan program
The San Francisco 49ers and IDEMIA, formerly OT–Morpho and the exclusive provider of TSA Precheck, revealed a new multi-year partnership to promote and implement identity and security services from IDEMIA’S IdentoGO solution at Levi’s Stadium.
In addition to offering TSA Precheck enrollment opportunities at 49ers home games, IDEMIA will equip the 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 IDEMIA’S IdentoGO 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. “We look forward to working with IDEMIA to jointly deploy the first-ever Trusted Fan Program which we plan on implementing in stages.”
Through pilot programs using IdentoGO technology, the NFL team will test options to streamline fan entrance, enhance the fan experience inside the stadium, and look at implementing biometrics at point of sale.
“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,” said Didier Lamouche, CEO of IDEMIA.
Earlier this month, IdentoGO by IDEMIA was named the Official Identity Security and Biometrics Partner of the New York Jets.
