The San Francisco 49ers and IDEMIA announced a new multi-year partnership to promote and implement identity and security services from IDEMIA’S IdentoGO solution, the country’s preeminent identity-related service provider and exclusive provider of TSA PreCheck®, 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. We look forward to working with IDEMIA to jointly deploy the first-ever Trusted Fan Program which we plan on implementing in stages. We are excited about the possibilities they bring toward enhancing the fan experience at Levi’s® Stadium.
Jim Mercurio, 49ers Vice President of stadium operations and Levi’s® Stadium general manager.
At IDEMIA, we make it our mission to protect people and places with innovative and convenient solutions so that security doesn’t get in the way of enjoying free time. This is what we are doing for millions of Americans already using the TSA PreCheck® program to travel safely. 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.
Didier Lamouche, CEO of IDEMIA, the company that provides IdentoGO services.
Through innovative pilot programs focused on leveraging IdentoGO’s wide-ranging technology, the 49ers will test options to streamline fan entrance into Levi’s® Stadium, enhance the fan experience inside the stadium, and look at the implementation of biometrics at point of sale.
Being located in Silicon Valley mandated that our organization have a close relationship with pioneering technology companies and IDEMIA certainly delivers on that characterization. The launch of their TSA PreCheck® enrollment for 49ers fans who visit Levi’s® Stadium is just the beginning of our work with them as we work to further enhance the guest experience at Levi’s® Stadium.
Brent Schoeb, 49ers Vice President of corporate partnerships.
