On February 17, it was announced that the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) plans to launch the ticket sales for football matches through a blockchain-based mobile application. Football fans will be able to check the benefits of blockchain technology. According to the developers of the application, the process of entering the stadium will be safe and reliable.

QR codes are activated via Bluetooth when the fans are near the stadium. The application will be ready for work by the end of May for users of iOS and Android. Purchased tickets through the blockchain application will be available to customers seven days before the match.

The use of blockchain technology for issuing and selling tickets is an effective way to fight against counterfeiting. In addition, e-tickets will help reduce paper usage. UEFA already has experience using blockchain technology. In 2018, all tickets for the match between Spanish clubs were sold through the blockchain application. This year, EURO 2020 plans to sell 1 million tickets.
