MacRumors reports that fans attending Game One of the MLB World Series at the Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City will be able to use Apple Pay on their iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus to purchase food and beverages from the concession stands. The facility will also be available at AT&T Park in San Francisco. This early-adoption of Apple’s payment system occurs as a result of a partnership between MLB Advanced Media and MasterCard.
“We thank MasterCard for its great involvement in bringing another simple and secure mobile technology to baseball fans," said Noah Garden, EVP, Revenue, MLBAM. "Introducing this service underscores the importance of our on-going commitment to mobile innovations at Major League Baseball ballparks. Being able to build reliable, convenient and authentic technologies on their personal devices is no longer a nice-to-have option for fans. It's central to their experiences."
MacRumors notes that Major League Baseball is an Apple Pay app partner, with Apple Pay being built into the At the Ballpark app. Also, fans will be able to use Apple Pay to buy single-game tickets for the 2015 MLB season when they go on sale in November.
