Dutch sports authority may track hooligans by fingerprint, GPS
When football fans get violent and charged with “hooliganism,” they wind up getting prohibited from their team stadiums for a time to prevent more mayhem. But the current system of manually checking these blocked citizens in on game day is cumbersome. To counter that, the Netherlands’ governing football association KNVB will roll out a device soon that tracks banned fans using GPS and biometrics. While it could be a technologically convenient for offenders and authorities, it’s a solution with privacy concerns.
