Fanslive x Stevenage FC pilot

Fanslive x Stevenage Football Club ⚽️

In June 2021 we contacted a number of clubs in the EFL League 1 and 2 with the aim of launching the first Fanslive pilot.

Alex Tunbridge, former CEO at Stevenage FC, got in touch looking to introduce card and contactless payments at their food and beverage outlets within the stadium providing home/away fans with the convenience of paying by card during COVID.

By August we’d implemented the Fanslive Staff app with PAX A920 contactless devices at all the outlets and provided serving staff with operational training.

For the 6 month period from August 2021 to February 2022, overall revenues increased and fans moved from paying 100% in cash previously to a mix of 89% card and 11% cash.

As part of this integration we launched the free club branded iOS and Android fan app to enhance engagement with club news, fixtures, team sheet, match updates, stadium and travel information and a full list of all food & beverage on sale.

Then post match day we provide the Stevenage FC finance team with a full breakdown and reconciliation of all card/cash transactions with funds settled directly to their bank account the next working day.

If you’re looking to turn your stadium contactless then please get in touch - we’ve got an easy to implement, cost-effective solution for you 🏆
