Sportbund Rheinland recommends Inscribe digital solution for contact tracking

The upcoming spring not only gives hope for many sunny days, but also for rays of hope in the relaxation of sports. Since 08 March 2021, up to 10 sports enthusiasts from the Rhineland have been allowed to meet for outdoor sports if the incidence number is below 50. The government’s plan for the coming weeks: falling infection figures and further relaxation in contact and indoor sports. The sports federation’s plan: Hygiene concepts, digital tracking and preparation for the long-awaited day when the hall gates are finally allowed to open again.

Save time & think of the environment with digital participant registration

In order to be able to enjoy sports to the full extent again soon, clubs have to present sophisticated hygiene concepts. This also includes the collection of personal data of those present at training and competition days, be they athletes, spectators or coaches. This ensures that in the event of an infection, the possible contacts can be identified and notified. A time-consuming act if one relies here on the manual registration of persons with pen and paper. The Rhineland Sports Federation would like to save the approximately 3,100 member clubs with over 600,000 members this effort and the environment the paper and therefore enables the clubs to use the digital attendance list Inscribe in their own federation colours free of charge. Thus, on training and match days, those present can quickly and contactlessly enter their name on the attendance list with the help of a smartphone and QR code, thus supporting contact tracking immensely.

Each club can generate individual QR codes with Inscribe, which are then displayed at the entrance to sporting events. It doesn’t matter whether it’s open-air events or indoor sports. By using the camera function of all common smartphones, the posted QR code can be scanned. This opens the registration form in the internet browser, where people are supposed to leave their contact details. No app needs to be installed on the mobile phone, with just a few clicks you are already registered on the list. Personal data is collected in accordance with the German Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO) and stored on decentralised servers.

"We hope that the digital attendance list can serve as a digital guide for the municipalities of the Rhineland towards reopening. With the use of Inscribe, associations can focus on what is really important instead of having to deal with time-consuming and tedious administrative work."

– Martin Weinitschke, Managing Director

The stored personal information data is guaranteed to be protected from the prying eyes of third parties and can only be accessed by the data protection officer using a personal key. In case of infection, there are no more mountains of paper to conquer and no more deciphering hieroglyphic handwriting. The list with the data of the potential contact persons can be created quickly and sent directly to the health department by e-mail. After four weeks without any risk of infection, the collected data is automatically deleted, thus saving the associations the administrative effort of manually sifting through and destroying contact forms.

We are happy that it is going on again! With the help of inscribe.

Sport association Rheinland

About the Sportbund Rheinland:

As the No. 1 sports provider in northern Rhineland-Palatinate, the Rhineland Sports Federation with 58 professional associations offers more opportunities for physical activity than any other. Therefore, they are all too aware of their responsibility and the social mission of organised sport. Especially in times of the Corona crisis, the physical and also mental health of many sports enthusiasts suffers from the lack of opportunities for community sports. To counteract this, the sports federation has not only supported the clubs with home trainings through online courses, but is also working hard to reopen the sports facilities. Together with the Sportbund Rheinhessen and Sportbund Pfalz, the three sports federations form the merged Landessportbund Rheinland-Pfalz, which offers almost 1,400,000 members the opportunity to express their sporting passion.
