CHESTER, Pa. (October 7, 2021) – The Philadelphia Union today announced that it has entered into a relationship with Fiserv, Inc., a leading global provider of payments and financial services technology, to enable Philadelphia Union fans to enjoy cashless and contactless commerce experiences when visiting Subaru Park.
Now the official financial technology in-stadium service provider of the Philadelphia Union, Fiserv has implemented market-leading point-of-sale hardware and software throughout the stadium to create a full cashless payment environment. The Union deployed more than 130 Clover® devices to enable quick and contactless purchases at concession stands and within premium seating areas in Subaru Park. The technology transforms the concession experience by facilitating faster transaction times, shortening queues, and allowing fans to spend more time watching the match at Subaru Park.
“Fiserv has been an expert partner in helping us deliver an excellent gameday experience for our fans at Subaru Park,” said Charlie Slonaker, Chief Revenue Officer at the Philadelphia Union. “We look forward to introducing our community to all Fiserv has to offer, including modern payment experiences that shorten concession lines and keep Union fans in their seats enjoying the game.”
Clover from Fiserv is a complete point-of-sale and business-management platform enabling businesses to maximize their operating efficiencies and grow, while providing customers flexible ways to pay. Clover is integrated with Bypass point-of-sale software, allowing Subaru Park staff to optimize front- and back-of-house service operations, while also providing real-time data and analytics for sales and operational performance.
“As consumers demand faster and easier ways to pay, stadium operators have a tremendous opportunity to enhance fan interactions while streamlining in-stadium operations,” said Geoff Johnson, GM of Bypass at Fiserv. “We are proud to work alongside the Philadelphia Union to deliver seamless modern payment experiences while also helping venues like Subaru Park operate more efficiently.”
In addition to providing a contact-free gameday experience, the partnership includes a monthly Adidas soccer boot giveaway on Philadelphia Union social media channels.
