Wycombe Wanderers introduce cashless options in stadium
Wycombe Wanderers have partnered with TicketCo to offer cashless payment options in bars at Adams Park.
The introduction of the technology forms part of the club’s vision to become a cashless stadium in the future. Wanderers launched the cashless bar solutions at the weekend when the club went top of League One following its 3-1 victory over Lincoln City.
Wanderers supporters can now pre-order drinks from the club’s Rebellion beer tent in the Chairboys Village via the TicketCo website or app and simply display the QR code at the bar to receive the drink at the express queue for ‘click and collect’ purchases, cutting queue times. Contactless technology was also added to bars inside the ground for the first time, via the partnership.
Mark Palmer, from the club’s management team, said: “We’ve taken on board feedback from supporters about lengthy queues at the bar at peak times on matchday, and are pleased to have worked with TicketCo to develop a ‘click and collect’ solution which enables fans to pre-buy their drinks and pick them up from the bar.
“We soft launched the new procedure at the weekend and hope to roll it out across the stadium in the weeks to come, while we’re also working on improving the wi-fi connections at all point of sales to enable contactless payments at every food or merchandise outlet.
“We’ve had a lot of success already with the new TicketCo platform when it comes to fans buying tickets quickly and simply online or via the app. Hopefully this new development is another positive step for our supporters’ matchday experience.”
David Kenny, TicketCo UK Country Manager, said: “The pre-ordering option is an easy to use modern solution that helps reduce waiting times. It is fantastic working with such a forward-thinking football club that cares about its fans. Supporters are now starting to see the additional benefits of the TicketCo technology as we develop Wycombe’s cashless strategy in partnership with the club.”
TicketCo also provides Wanderers with a full mobile first ticketing service. The TicketCo system can send QR codes to supporters’ phones which are then scanned at turnstiles to gain entry on match-day.
TicketCo’s technology is designed to make event payments quick and easy for both organisers and consumers, thanks to its pioneering technology. The platform’s technology is compatible with Android and iOS devices and enables organisers to promote offers on food, drink and merchandise in advance of events.
TicketCo has offices in Norway, the UK, Poland and Sweden. It has partnerships with several football clubs, including Kilmarnock, Legia Warsaw, Macclesfield Town, Solihull Moors and Eastleigh.
