The players of the Florida UCF Knights football team wore jerseys, which featured huge QR codes instead of numbers. If a fan scanned the code located below the player's last name, his smartphone opened the official subpage of the league and displayed personal statistics. This way, according to the Verge, the club wanted to allow fans to learn about the life and career of university team players.

 

The UFC Knights team used modified jerseys during the "spring game" training. Players of the university teams tried to show their skills and attract professional teams that could sign them in the future.

 

 

 

The club informed about this interesting innovation via a video on Twitter. In it, team coach Gus Mazhanh, wore a T-shirt with his own QR code, showing, how the innovation works. According to the video, it seems that the QR codes could also be displayed on the information screen at the stadium during the match.

 

It is not certain, to what extent this is an eye-catcher and a practical aid for fans, as scanning the code can be difficult in practice. But the UCF Knights team came up with one more unusual idea last season, when the players put on jerseys with a number, but their last name was replaced by their Twitter username.
