A Danish soccer club has installed facial-recognition technology to spot fans who have been banned from matches, The Wall Street Journal reports. Brondby IF uses security cameras and facial-recognition software developed by Panasonic to identify fans who have been placed on a blacklist after they have been thrown out of games. The club had to receive permission from the Danish data protection authority in order to use the technology. The stadium must be transparent about its data-processing activities. Brondby Communications Manager Christian Schultz added the club deletes the data it collects after each event. (Registration may be required to access this story.)
