Electronic ticketing for all events

THE Fiji Football Association will make a complete transition from cash to electronic ticketing (e-ticketing) for all its games and events from the first of next month.

In a statement, Fiji FA said it had chosen Vodafone and Epay to be their e-ticketing solution providers.

Both companies, Vodafone and CJ Patel, earlier signed a five-year sponsorship deal in consortium with Fiji FA worth approximately $5million.

"We would like to bring about greater transparency and accountability in our revenue collection and reporting system," said Fiji FA chief executive Bob Kumar.

"Globally, sports and event organisers are turning to the more secure and convenient electronic modes of payment offered through electronic ticketing.

"We would like to go the same way so that we can prevent leakages, pilferages and counterfeiting of tickets which have always been a concern for us.

"We also wish to bring about greater control on tickets being reused, recycled and exchanged which is a loss of revenue to the association.

"E-ticketing will provide greater control because the cards are not as easily passed from one person to the next.

"Anyone found without a valid ticket could face a fine for cheating the system."

Vodafone will be setting up e-ticketing registration, card issuing and top up booths at match venues to assist with the move to electronic tickets.
