Just as Visa is making the most of a popular sporting event, so too is MasterCard as the company has announced plans to introduce new payment technology to The Barclays gold tournament.
Concession and merchandise point of sale locations throughout the Black Course at Bethpage State Park will accept contactless payments—including the enhanced Masterpass digital payment service the company launched last month.
Spectators will also be able to order concessions directly to their seat using Qkr! with Masterpass, an app developed by Mastercard that enables consumers to seamlessly order and pay for food via their smartphones.
“As a proud sponsor of The Barclays, we’re delighted to enhance the spectator experience by not only bringing our latest payment technology to the tournament, but also through our modernized and elevated brand identity,” said Raja Rajamannar, chief marketing and communications officer, Mastercard.
He also added: “It’s an exciting week as attendees will be among the first to experience the digital future of Mastercard at a preeminent PGA TOUR event, The Barclays.”
