Payment Expert spoke to representatives of both Tappit, the global payment and data ecosystem for sports, events, stadiums and venues, and the Jacksonville Jaguars, as the firms continued to benefit from their recently formed partnership.

The collaboration, which marks Tappit’s second with an NFL team, has helped safely bring Jaguars fans back into TIAA Bank Field for the 2020 football season with the implementation of seamless contactless mobile payment technology throughout the stadium.

The cashless solution also reduces the risk of fraud and theft, as all payment information is kept securely within the Jaguars’ app and fans do not have the added worry of carrying additional cards or cash which can be easily stolen.

Jason Thomas, CEO of Tappit and Chad Johnson, senior vice president of sales and service and chief content officer at the Jaguars, both sat down with Payment Expert and underlined that the collaboration is growing, with data playing a pivotal role in its maximisation.
