Premier League champions Manchester City has named Tappit as the club's official events cashless payment partner in the UK and Asia Pacific.
As part of the partnership, both the organisations will work together with the aim to enhance cashless experience for City fans. Tappit’s technology will be implemented at various different Manchester City fan events across the UK and Asia, such as fan parks showing live screenings of the games and jogging clubs. Tappit will also organise global live screenings and mass participation events.
Damian Willoughby, senior vice president of partnerships at City Football Group, said: “Manchester City is excited to be entering this partnership with Tappit, whose cashless technology has proven popular at many live events. The partnership comes at a time where football and technology are more closely linked than ever before – working with Tappit will certainly help us utilise this.
"We want our fans to enjoy interacting with the Club when attending one of our many live events around the world and we hope this partnership will give our fans some great new experiences.”
Jason Thomas, CEO at Tappit said: “We are delighted to be working with Manchester City and its fanbase across the world. We are committed to helping clubs deepen relationships with their supporters and Manchester City shares our vision to deliver an incredible fan experience.
"On top of this, the fact that they are a truly global organisation matches both our ambition and geographic reach, making them the perfect sporting partner.”
