Development Consultant at Fortress GB
Fortress GB, whose card base is currently 7.5 million, joined forces with Global Processing Services (GPS) to launch the first integrated contactless stadium season ticket card to the UK sports market. Season ticket holders and members can use ‘The One Card’ to gain entry to the stadium whilst using the same card for purchases at selected merchants at the point of sale or online.
Fortress GB is partner to over 130 of the world’s most prestigious and diverse sports teams and organizations, providing technology that has powered the adoption of digital ticketing and the use of RFID/NFC technology in the sports and entertainment industries, supporting game day operations and wider fan engagement activities.
Fans can purchase the Season Ticket online or within the app, via the clubs’ existing integrated ticketing platform. The contactless season card will cut down waiting times and reduce queues for fans during all important matches throughout the season. Fans can choose to pay with the membership card and in future purely digital with a new smartphone app for quick and convenient, contactless payment.
