A French football club has tested a facial recognition access control system designed to enhance event security, a news report has been able to suggest.

The club tested the biometric technology at the stadium through video content analysis software as part of a “technical test” conducted on “volunteer staff of the start-up with a view to possible future application.”

“There is a real problem of fighting radicalization in France but also in the world,” said Minister of Sports of France, Roxana Maracineanu. “So, we have to watch over the fight against terrorism, and when we have people gathered around a sporting event, it can be very dangerous.”
