SECTO AUTOMOTIVE RALLY FINLAND
“CoreGo has been taking care of the access control and payment systems for the Finnish round of World Rally Championship (WRC) for many years now. Their services are helping us to run more efficient and sustainable events.”
Markus Häkkinen, CFO, AKK Sports Finland
Rally Finland is one of the largest annual events in the Nordics, with almost three hundred thousand spectator visits in various areas during the event.
The following services were provided for the Secto Automotive Rally Finland 2021:
- RFID passes
- All devices for service side payments and access control at each sector
- Setup and support
RFID passes and QR-codes were widely used in the spectator ticketing solutions in order to authenticate all spectator tickets. RFID passes were also used to manage access to the VIP areas, where they also allowed AKK Sport’s corporate clients to buy drinks for their guests on account.
The Secto Automotive Rally Finland app was launched in 2021, which was built using our app development platform. In addition to helping spectators plan their trip, with up-to-date information about the stages and spectator areas, it was used to send important updates during the event.
“We are committed to supporting a sustainable future for our events and working with CoreGo on the digital ticketing solutions is an important part of this process. A digital rally pass will be introduced in 2022, largely replacing the plastic passes and lanyards, and special stage tickets will be made available online, which will decrease our carbon footprint even more.” Markus Häkkinen
We have also worked with AKK Sports on the following events:
- Arctic Rally Finland 2021
- Finnish National Rally Championship series
- Finnish National Rallycross Championship series
“Several factors came together to make this the right time for us to go “cashless”. I also saw CoreGo’s new CM5 terminal as the right tool to allow us to make this change. We were more than happy with how things turned out.”
Pirjo Palonen, Restaurant Manager & Venue Designer
Qstock is one of the biggest music festivals in Finland. First organised in 2003, this annual 2-day music festival welcomes 40,000 visitors to Oulu each July.
This was the first year that CoreGo provided the payment solution for Qstock. Using our mobile CM5 payment solution, Qstock was also able to go “cashless’ for the first time. The solution was also built on our independent wireless network, ensuring a secure and fast service.
We are already looking forward to Qstock 2022, which will take place from 29.-30.7. More information about this festival can be found from the Qstock festival website.
“When the Olympic ice hockey team received the gold medals in Beijing, CoreGo’s payment terminals were ready for action already the very next day. The flexible CM5 payment terminals ensured that the hockey fans didn’t stay hungry or thirsty at the Olympic Stadium celebration.”
Jani Immonen, Event Manager, Compass Group
The Olympic Stadium arranged a public event to celebrate the gold and bronze medals of the Finnish Olympic ice hockey teams. The event welcomed 20 000 fans from all around Finland.
CoreGo was recently chosen as the payment system provider for Compass Group’s Olympic Stadium operations. We were happy to be able to assist with the setup for the celebration party, providing our CM5 payment terminals at short notice for all sales points and training staff on their use.
We have also cooperated with the Compass Group at the Olympic Stadium for the following events:
- FIFA World Cup qualification match between Finland-France, November 2021
- Helsinki Ski Weeks, February 2022
