Football could possibly turn to smart tunnels

Our world continues to evolve every day and so does football, from smart fitness gadgets to smart jerseys and even smart stadiums.

Teams are constantly searching for ways to gain advantage over their pairs.
Football has been on hold for some months now and even though there are plans to restart soon.

It is a plan that will take some getting used to.
While the players will be able to go on with their day to day business soon, they will be without one of the most important stakeholders in the game, football fans.

Football Stadiums will never be empty

Well, Jose Mourinho thinks stadiums will never be empty even if games are played behind closed doors.

He may have a point though, a stadium open to camera and TV crew is open to millions of fans around the world.

If we play the remaining nine matches this season it will be good for every one of us,

“It will be good for football, for the Premier League. If we play football behind closed doors I’d like to think that football is never behind closed doors. 

With cameras, it means that millions and millions are watching. So if one day we walk into this empty stadium, it will not be empty, not at all.” He told SkySports


Due to the restrictions on public gathering and social distancing rules put in place by the government and different Health organizations around the world, football fans won’t be able to attend games and cheer their favorite teams under normal circumstances, but what if there is a way to properly screen the fans and allow them into the stadiums? A smart tunnel, which may be the solution to allowing fans into the stadiums again.

CleanTech sanitation pod could be the next big thing in football


Far away in Asia there is a three-in-one disinfection machine been exhibited at Hong Kong’s exhibition center that is capable of checking temperature, sanitizing and killing virus if detected.

To sweeten the proposal the whole process take only about 12 seconds which is by far lower than the amount of time needed to check into the stadium normally.
The only challenge will be attempting to implement it on a large scale but that’s not to say it is impossible.
