Fortress GB, which heads customer management products for stadiums and entertainment venues, has chose Wirecard to issue an all-in-one season ticket and member card with contactless payment functionality, according to a press release.
Season ticket holders and members can use The One Card to gain entry to stadiums and entertainment venues in the U.K. while using the same card for purchases at selected merchants at the point of sale or online.
Fortress GB is a 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 club’s existing integrated ticketing platform.
“Fortress carried an extensive search for an issuing partner that understood the strategic aims of the company, along with the challenges presented by working in the sports stadium environment,” Duncan Martin, development consultant at Fortress, said in the release.
