Estadio da Luz

Estadio da Luz

‘Estadio da Luz’ (‘Stadium of Light’), which seats up to 65,000 spectators, has been constructed in accordance with the most innovative methods and latest technologies available. 
 
This was necessary to ensure full compliance with the stringent UEFA and FIFA security standards and guidelines. Chosen as the venue for the European Championship final on July 4, 2004, this ‘football cathedral’ is clearly in a class of its own. SKIDATA has been entrusted with providing the necessary access control equipment. The proven handshake system manages more than 200 control points smoothly and efficient, keeping things clear for administrators.

Project Overview 

High number of access points for a stadium
Specially designed VIP access points
World premiere: ticketing via Pay-TV
The Benfica project is also unique as a new service has been introduced which has been developed in cooperation with Kudelski Group: ticketing via Pay-TV.
It allows stadium visitors to book their ticket for the next match by accessing a Pay-TV application and having their RFID ticket authorized for admission. Based on Benfica requirements, the VIP admission points have been fitted with a distinctly exclusive looking exterior that contrasts clearly against the standard checkpoints.
The design of the regular admission points also reflects full commitment to the Benfica corporate identity, with all SKIDATA readers sporting the club’s colors and emblem. Customer satisfaction unlimited.
