This year, UEFA will distribute over one million tickets for football matches via a blockchain-based mobile ticketing system, ensuring smoother and safer entry into the stadium for the fans. The idea is that this new blockchain based mobile ticketing system will also help provide secure ticket distribution across multiple countries and help prevent the replication and duplication of tickets, with QR codes only being activated by Bluetooth once fans are in close proximity to the stadium.

This is a great use case for Blockchain as it will also help eliminate black markets and enhance the fans match day experience by removing the need to visit and queue up at ticket collection points. It will be interesting to see how successful it proves to be at such a large event which, with a total of 28.3 million ticket requests, is officially the most in-demand UEFA EUROs competition ever.
