Fulham FC has just become the latest in a long line of football clubs to have RFID enabled turnstiles installed at their ground.
The new turnstiles are equipped with a smart card scanner, which reads the chip embedded in an RFID card. Each card has the added advantage of being contactless, so it doesn’t even need to be removed from your wallet or purse to be scanned.
The smart card tickets that are issued to fans have an aerial and a chip, which contains data on football matches the carholder has paid for. Fans can easily update the cards over the phone or in person at the stadium ticket office.
The introduction of the cards has not only cut queues at the turnstiles on match days, but has also increased safety around the stadium. What used to take 10-20 seconds per season-ticket holder on the turnstile is now cut down to 4 seconds.
Fulham have followed in the footsteps of other league clubs including Coventry City, Manchester City, Reading and Wigan, all of whom have RFID enabled turnstiles at their grounds.
Carpark Barriers Turnstiles install and maintain RFID enabled turnstiles, suitable for use within recreation facilities such as football grounds, health clubs, and athletics stadiums.
Turnstiles are particularly popular at sports grounds due to their ability to cope with a high throughput of visitors. Built to ISO regulations, our turnstiles are available in any RAL colour as a special order at low prices.
