Chiliz recently announced about its working on a blockchain-based solution allowing soccer fans to get back to the stadiums provided they must have a government issued immunity pass. As per the blog posted on April 13 related to the projected Socios Pass can be the reason to lessen a few damages to the sports industry which are caused by the novel Coronavirus pandemic.
Though many nations in Europe including Italy have already drafted plans for a return to normal condition, the general statement is that football events is going to held behind the closed doors of the coming future. Also, One football match on Feb 19 is accused for generating the outbreak in Italy which is around the city of Bergamo.
All these plans could be a big blow to the football industry that draws a significant part of its revenues from selling stadium tickets, said by Chiliz. There is a solution which is given by a few scientists and politicians is an immunity passport which would be able to verify that whether its holder has been infected with the Coronavirus. Well, the reason behind the spread remains unsettled, hopefully refraining the spread of the disease and allowing them to participate in mass gatherings and live a normal life.
All Chiliz’s partners that include Italian and European teams like FC Barcelona, Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain are already in support of this proposal. This Socios Pass works by connecting with user’s immunity certificate after filling a KYC procedure on its website. Later on, the fans would then present a one –time QR code to go at the stadium gates who would be helpful in confirming the identity of the person.

Is this practical?
Well, immunity passports have always received criticism for numerous reasons that include both practical and ideological. People would come up with false positives of the antibody used for certification. Though these tests are imprecise to be used for any things other than statistical estimates.
Potential social issues and concerns of government also contributed in making this proposal inedible for now. Alexandre Dreyfus, the CEO of Chiliz, told Cointelegraph that Socios Pass is the medium to be already prepared if governments agree to institute immunity passports despite all criticism. In addition to that, Dreyfus said that though the solution is not ideal, but he told that there are no other choices for fans to look at all the football games. It is a tool to acquire better security and safety in massive public venues.
Since it is blockchain-based, it would help in alleviating concerns of data privacy, he mentioned that they doesn’t have access to the data, nor do they want to have. The role is to allow the security agent to let you in and blockchain would ensure that the information mentioned should not be altered.
