Bury FC partners with tappit for cashless experience
Bury FC has teamed with tappit, the club’s away shirt sponsor, to implement cashless payments at its Energy Check Stadium at Gigg Lane.
Supporters can use Bury-branded NFC-enabled, prepaid tappit cards at four of the club’s concession stands, the Members Suite, Starkies Restaurant, the Social Club, and the Retail Shop. Bury FC Commercial Director, Matt Caren, says: “We’re hugely excited to bring new technology to the club. Offering our fans the chance to go cashless at The Energy Check Stadium at Gigg Lane is such a positive move for us. tappit is becoming much more than a shirt sponsor, partnering with an organisation that has this expertise gives us the chance to improve the matchday experience for our fans. It also helps us find out more about the behaviours of our supporters and learn how best we can communicate with our fans moving forward.”
tappit CEO, Rob Groombridge, adds: “When we first spoke to Bury about sponsoring the club, we discussed taking the stadium cashless and were delighted to find the club is so keen to embrace new technology. This is the first step in Bury’s journey to becoming the UK’s first cashless stadium, leading the way in payment innovation within football. We look forward to giving Bury fans a great cashless experience for years to come.”
