JasonD, DaveN & NFFC NOT Welcome at the World Cup

10 comments

The WSJ reports that this year's World Cup will use RFID implanted tickets to prevent known troublemakers from entering the event.

Most tickets have been imprinted with spectators' names, and have embedded radio-frequency chips that link tickets to names in a database. The Cup's German organizing committee has said staff will randomly crosscheck ticketholders' identities against the names on the tickets. If a spectator is caught with a ticket registered to someone else, she or he won't be allowed in.

The organizing committee is enforcing a stringent ticketholder policy to ward off counterfeiting, and also for what officials say are security concerns. German authorities have compiled a list of "known hooligans," who are barred from entering German stadiums because of past troublemaking, says Stephan Eiermann, a spokesman for the organizing committee.

I wonder if this sort of activity will cause growth in on demand fake ID cards? Or will soccer hooligans start hacking RFID?
