2024 Olympic Games in Paris might use NFT ticketing
Tickets to the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris might be sold as NFTs.
The incident that took place before UEFA Champions League final game last month made the French government consider more advanced security protocols. The game between Real Madrid and Liverpool was delayed due to mass ticket counterfeiting. The police had to use tear gas to restore order, and the event turned out to be an embarrassment for the country.
In consequence, The French Government Olympics envoy Michel Cadot prepared a 30-page report for the Prime Minister’s Office. The report contains recommendations on the deployment of blockchain ticketing that could resolve fraud and fake ticket issues.
Cadot said that personalised ticketing will be used during Paris 2024. The innovation would allow ticket holders to receive informative messages on transport, security, and venue entry via digital channels. The organization would send out NFTs a few days before the event, using SMS messaging. The QR codes for the entrance would be deactivated once visitors have accessed the venue.
“This coordination, applied to other Major International Sporting Events of major importance upstream of the cut of the Rugby World Cup and the 2024 Olympic Games, would make it possible to prefigure the planned systems and to break in the working methods, as well as the reflexes of multi-actor management to face difficulties,” said Michel Cadot.
France intends to use non-fungible token tickets during the 2023 Rugby World Cup as well.
