To congratulate the Republic of Ireland national team on future Euro 2012 appearance the biggest world betting exchange Betfair made the first and the largest football based QR code.
Betfair placed this code within 500 m distance of Aviva Stadium to help Betfair's customers place bets via Betfair Mobile App. Using this application bettor can wager on return qualifying play off fixed on Tuesday.
Eight employees spent 5 hours and a lot of efforts to position footballs in a form of QR-code.
To test the enormous code Betfair asked two experienced paratroopers to scan it. They lifted on a height of 3000 m and at a free falling of 210 km an hour they scanned the QR-code and placed a bet via Betfair Mobile. Parachutists from Ireland and Estonia successfully shot the code and landed.
Betfair's representative Barry Orre says that it's an amazing thing how two parachute jumpers managed to scan it at such a speed of a free fall. An Irish parachutist landed first and he won 500 euros for a free bet on today match.
