In order to get a ticket you were engaged to give the following information
to the FIFA:
- complete name and surename
- date of birth
- number of passport or "Reisepass" (travel passport)
- telephone number
- fan of what club (!)
- number of bank- or creditcard
The FIFA as well as the DFB (German Soccer Association) have access to all this data!
The information stored at the RFID-chip is the following:
- a serial number
- the passport-number of the ticket owner
Peter Buettgen, speaker of "The Federal Commissioner for Data Protection
and Freedom of Information" said that "...no other personal information
will be stored on the chip..."
The transmission of the data is secured. That is what they say.
Now a lot of people started buying special "covers" for the tickets
that avoid the transmission. Nobody knows whether you have access
to the stadium in that case or not. There are even "gripper" available to
destroy the chip permanently.
