To run a multi-sport event, it is necessary to have a design of accounting information system for ticket sales that can run efficiently and can reduce opportunities of fraudulent acts. A case study during the 18th Asian Games 2018 shows that there were problems of inadequate ticket sales facilities for prospective spectators due to vendor diversion to the frictional problems such as venues located in various regions and protection of spectator rights in accordance with the purchased tickets. Some cases found in the multi-sport event were false seats and fictitious spectators allowed entrance to some arenas they did not have the right to enter, although they have gone through verification measures using line-of-sight barcoding technology. Some cases were also found during the 18th Asian Games 2018, in which there was a problem of inadequate ticket sales facilities for prospective spectators due to a change of vendor. There were also frictional problems on venues which are spread in various regions and regarding protection of spectators’ rights per their purchased tickets. Moreover, it is fundamental that we take concern in the current pandemic situation, all event organizers are obliged to consider implementing health protocols issued by the World Health Organization (WHO) for safety to break the chain of COVID-19 infection. This study is conducted to identify the core of those problems and offer a solution by implementing radio-frequency identification (RFID) and blockchain technology to optimize the services applied in the multi-sport event, especially during and post-pandemic. Ticketing effectiveness for spectators are also challenged by budgetary and eco-friendliness issues.
