World Series Stadium’s Concession Stands to Accept Apple Pay

It doesn’t matter if you’re a Kansas City Royals fan, or a San Francisco Giants fan, when you attend the World Series this year, you’ll be able to pay for your peanuts and Cracker Jacks using Apple Pay.

AppleInsider:

Fans attending Game One of the World Series at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City on Tuesday will be able to buy food and beverages at concession stands with Apple Pay’s iPhone 6-based NFC payments system, reports Forbes. The touchless system is being rolled out in cooperation with MasterCard and will leverage point-of-sale hardware produced by NCR.

Major League Baseball’s Advanced Media arm says Apple Pay-compatible point of sale terminals have also been installed at AT&T Stadium in San Francisco, making the two stadiums the first major sports venues to accept Apple’s mobile wallet solution.

“The ballpark experience lends itself well to simple, secure payments so fans get through concessions and back to the game quickly,” said Ed McLaughlin, MasterCard’s chief emerging payments officer. “We’re thrilled to partner with MLBAM to bring contactless acceptance to the 2014 World Series. Through our longstanding relationship with MLB and MLBAM we are constantly looking for opportunities to create enhanced fan experiences both in-stadium and online, whether that’s through advanced payment capabilities or delivering surprises to fans.”

MLBAM and Tickets.com also plan to offer in-app ticket purchases processed via Apple Pay’s online component in the MLB.com At the Ballpark app this November.
