Many soccer fans in Paris last month had a bad time at the UEFA Champions League final because fake tickets were sold and people tried to get in without tickets.

The chaos before the UEFA Champions League final game could make it more common for sports events in France to use nonfungible tokens (NFTs) as tickets. The country has said in the past that it plans to use NFT tickets at the Rugby World Cup in 2023 and the Olympics in Paris in 2024.

One reason why the soccer championship on May 28 was so chaotic was because a lot of fake tickets were sold. It was a big embarrassment for the country when police had to use tear gas to get things back to normal and the game between Liverpool FC and Real Madrid had to be postponed. Michel Cadot, who works for the French government and is in charge of the Olympics, gave a report to the office of the French Prime Minister last week. In it, he suggested that all sports events in the future use NTF tickets to prevent trouble.

Cadot was quoted in the report as saying that putting in place the new ticketing system before the rugby event and Olympics would allow them to “prefigure the planned systems and break in the working methods, as well as the reflexes of multi-actor management to deal with problems.”

Using blockchain technology and QR codes, the French system plans to give out digital tickets that can only be used by the person who bought them. Tickets would be sent out by SMS a short time before events and would only work inside a security zone around the venue.

One of the best things about NFT ticketing is that it stops people from making fake tickets and selling them. This makes events safer and makes more money for their sponsors. NFT tickets can also be set up to do other things, like get you into a VIP area or give you a souvenir. Ticket sales are just one way that NFTs can get into the sports world. Since 2020, NFT collectibles have been a part of the marketing plans of many teams and are becoming more and more popular. They can even be set up to include voting and access to physical collectibles as ways to get fans involved.
