'I carry you inside me': Argentina football club offers its fans an implantable chip
Fans in football-mad Argentina often chant: 'I carry you inside me!' when talking about their favorite club. It might soon be more than just a slogan
Buenos Aires: Fans in football-mad Argentina often chant: "I carry you inside me!" when talking about their favorite club. It might soon be more than just a slogan.
The Tigre club in Argentina's first division plans to offer die-hard supporters a chance to implant a microchip in their skin. It would give them stadium access by pressing their bodies against scanners to open turnstiles.
Tigre official Ezequiel Rosino said Wednesday that there's nothing invasive about the chip because it doesn't have a tracking device and it carries only basic information about the fan.
He kicked off the initiative by implanting a chip under a club tattoo.
The initiative is still in an experimental phase, waiting for approval from the Argentine Football Association as well as health and security officials.
Dyche's success with Burnley, who are playing in the Premier League for a sixth consecutive season, had led to speculation of a move.
The suspected tumor was detected during routine tests, according to the hospital, where Pele has been undergoing treatment since 31 August.
Derided by opposition fans for trampling over German football traditions, RB Leipzig find themselves in the unusual position of not being cast as the bad guys as the Champions League's group of death kicks off on Wednesday.
