Top security at the Dinamo Arena of Tbilisi for the Georgia-Germany match

The Zucchetti access control systems have perfectly controlled the flow of more than 47,000 spectators at the qualifying match for the 2016 European Championship.

Zucchetti, a world leader in security for sporting facilities, has once again kept its promise: just three months after the signing of the contract to secure the Boris Paichadze National Stadium of Tbilisi, the Zucchetti access control system went into operation on Sunday 29 March 2015 for the Euro 2016 qualifying match between Georgia and Germany.

The system worked perfectly, managing a flow of more than 47,000 spectators through the turnstiles currently installed at the Dinamo Arena.

“The Mayor of Tbilisi, Sports minister and Deputy Prime Minister of Georgia visited the stadium the day before the match," said Gilberto Polledri, head of Zucchetti's security systems for stadiums, "and congratulated us on a job well done. We received positive feedback not only on the technological quality of our solutions, but also on the professionalism of our on-site technicians, and those who managed security at the gates in full compliance with the requirements of the UEFA, Georgian Football Federation, and local authorities of Tbilisi."

Marco Marchetti, head of Zucchetti BU Security and Automation, also expressed his satisfaction: "We are very proud of the work performed at the Dinamo Arena of Tbilisi because it is further demonstration of Zucchetti’s excellence in the field of stadium access control and management of large events. In fact, our system can be exported anywhere and has the advantage of being able to integrate easily with ticketing systems aimed at immediately checking the legitimacy of entry tickets. Many people are responsible for the excellent results obtained in Georgia, from colleagues who designed and prepared the systems in Italy to those who worked for weeks, even at night, in Tbilisi to install and test the system, as well as those who coordinated the necessary preparatory operations."
