ZIMBRU Stadium and Futsal Arena in Chiinău, Moldova – Entrance and Event Ticketing


Prior to installing TSC printers, cashiers from the Moldovan Football Federation faced many difficulties in servicing attendees at the Zimbru Stadium due to an outdated ticketing solution. During peak periods, this resulted in long lines at the ticket offices and entrances. Another significant problem was the absence of authorized service centers in the territory of Moldova. So at the request of the Federation, the MELITAX Grup Srl, which was founded 2006, developed a reliable printing solution using the powerful TSC ME240 thermal transfer printer. Stage two of the project was to install the same ticketing solution at the sports complex "Futsal Arena FMF", one of the most modern sports facilities in Moldova.


TSC’s compact ME240 with its clear LCD, fast label throughput and print speeds of up to 152 mm/s ensures a reliable and rapid printing process and ticketing. The powerful thermal transfer model saves time and prevents long queues at the ticket offices and entrances. All relevant information such as date, time of admission, row and seat number, logo and ticket number are printed accurately with a 203 dpi print resolution on colored pre-printed tickets. The integrated Real Time Clock guarantees maximum transparency because a date stamp is printed on the ticket. Additionally, 1D barcodes play an especially important role – they are read by stationary scanners allowing reliable and safe access control at the entrances. Once the tickets are printed they are precisely cut by the cutting unit.
