Major League Baseball and MasterCard announced earlier this week that baseball fans attending the World Series between Kansas City and San Francisco would be able to pay for their concession stand goodies at both team’s stadiums via Apple Pay. MasterCard debuted a pair of World Series themed ads featuring Apple Pay during game 1 of the fall classic last night.
The television spot above features former New York Yankees star Mariano Rivera and longtime Los Angeles Dodgers manager Tommy Lasorda, while the second one – seen below – features Kansas City Royals legend George Brett. Both spots promote “surprises” rewards such as meeting baseball legends and getting tickets to the World Series.
MasterCard says it has surprised over 70,000 cardholders with numerous rewards, and now by using Apple Pay users have more ways to win.
Apple launched its Apple Pay mobile payments service on Monday alongside the debut of iOS 8.1.
