Sheffield United joining cashless revolution

Sheffield United’s Bramall Lane will be working towards becoming a fully cashless stadium during the 2019/20 season.

The club will be operating new till systems and payment devices, allowing it to deliver the best possible fan experience at the world’s oldest professional stadium.

Starting from Sunday’s clash against Crystal Palace, no cash will be accepted at the majority of food and refreshment kiosks within the stadium, although there will be one cash/card till per kiosk.

The results will see increased speed of service and shorter queue times, coupled with more payment options and improved hygiene, with staff not handling cash.

All major contactless debit and credit cards will be accepted, with chip and pin applying for purchases over £30.

Mobile payments, including Apple Pay and Google Pay will also be able to be used, with this method supporting high-value contactless payments.
