New York Jets appoint IDEMIA as 'biometrics partner'
11 October 2017 18:10 GMT

The New York Jets have announced today a new multi-year partnership with IdentoGO by IDEMIA (formerly OT–Morpho), an identity-related service provider to provide biometric access to their stadium.

IDEMIA is a provider of TSA Pre✓, which offers biometric access to air travel and sports.

The agreement marks IdentoGO’s first NFL partnership and first exclusive sponsorship in professional sports. The deal makes IdentoGO the Official Identity Security and "Biometrics Partner" of the New York Jets.

“We are proud to be the first sports team to partner with an industry leader like IdentoGO,” said New York Jets President Neil Glat. “IdentoGO’s commitment to innovation and providing the best possible customer experience tightly aligns with our own philosophy. We look forward to working with them to explore new ways to provide our fans with access to new and improved technology to improve the gameday experience.”

The new deal will also provide Jets fans with the opportunity to register for expedited security screening for travelers (TSA Pre✓) at MetLife Stadium on game days. The activation, which will take place at all Jets home games during the 2017 season, will be located between lots E and F, outside the MetLife gate.

“It is our mission and responsibility to make our security solutions, like the TSA Pre✓® program, available to as many people as possible,” said Didier Lamouche, CEO of IDEMIA, the company that provides IdentoGO services. “Our partnership with the Jets allows us to reach as many as 75,000 fans at each home game and enroll a high percentage of those people into the proven safe and secure program. We are thrilled to be working with such a world-class organization.”

In late September, the OT-Morpho group rebranded itself as IDEMIA to "better reflect its position as a global leader in identity solutions".
