May 8th, 2007- Leading European American Football team Rhein Fire is using Zebra Card Printers to produce thousands of annual club passes for fans. The new printers, supplied by Cards & More, a plastic card manufacturer and long-standing Zebra Card Printer reseller, provided the Dusseldorf club with the state-of-the-art ticketing system.
Rhein Fire is one of five teams in the European offshoot of the National Football League (NFL) in the US. As the number of fans increased each year the club recognised the need to update its existing solution for producing annual passes and season tickets. Rhein Fire now uses a Zebra Card Printer 330i(tm) to produce all of its season ticket passes as plastic cards.
"Most of our season ticket holders ordered their tickets as plastic cards," said Rhein Fire's Ticket Manager Daniel Gergorz. "A proper printed image is very important for us because we do not only print the description of block, row, and seat on the card, but also a bar code for the electronic admission control."
"The introduction of the new card system has been very successful, especially in terms of admission control. Our first game day was completely trouble free. We and our fans are enthusiastic about the plastic cards printed with the Zebra printer because they not only look good but are also very practical and manageable."
