If you’re one of the lucky baseball fans who have tickets to this year’s MLB All-Star game in Cincinnati, Ohio on July 14th, you’ll be glad to know you can pay for your concessions and souvenirs via Apple Pay.
MasterCard, via 9to5Mac:
“We’re thrilled to partner with MLBAM to bring contactless acceptance to the 2015 MLB All-Star Week festivities. 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.”
MasterCard is running a promotion offering All-Star game attendees that use Apple Pay to win one if its Priceless Surprises. The company ran a similar promotion last year during the World Series, offering seat upgrades, VIP experiences meeting legendary players, and more for those that opt to pay with Apple Pay.
MasterCard holders who use Apple Pay to pay for concessions and merchandise at the T-Mobile All-Star FanFest taking place July 10th through July 14th or in-stadium at Great American Ball Park from July 12th through July 14th could win All-Star branded premiums, autographed memorabilia, prepaid cards, and more.
Apple Pay continues to add more U.S. financial institutions and merchants each month, and will rollout its first international expansion later this month, as it prepares to offer the payments service in the UK.
