Notes

Across the planet , football match tickets are going digital, and in so doing fans lose more than pieces of paper . Smart cards are replacing ticket stubs.

Scanning that code on your mobile will evolve to voice recognition at the turnstiles and probably eye scanning too.

Programmes will be next as more and more clubs produce them at a loss.. Yes, it’s good for the environment, and forests but it’s a sad day for old skool sentimental fans and collectors .

Great article from WSC (When Saturday Comes)..
