Croatian football club NK Osijek has teamed up with Hungarian security firm BioSec to implement a stadium access control system at its home ground.

The 20,000-capacity Gradski vrt stadium had the BioSec GateKeeper+ system installed in 2017 as part of the company’s StadiumGuard solution package.

BioSec offers complete access control and integration with the ticketing system at Stadion Gradski vrt.

In addition, the stadium’s complete access control infrastructure was renewed, including its security concept for mass admission and escape routes.

BioSec said in a statement: “The Croatian club’s choice for the BioSec system also highlights the importance to face the latest challenges of stadium access control, which became a significant issue worldwide.”

The renewed stadium opened its gates on June 8 with a pre-FIFA World Cup friendly between Croatia and Senegal.

The event was an opening match for the BioSec system, which reportedly performed successfully at the sold-out game.
