If you’re a sports fan, you’d know that the San Francisco Giants and Kansas City Royals are going into the World Series this year. For those who plan on attending the games at either stadiums, should be happy to know that they will be offering Apple Pay at the concession stands. This means, less people taking up lines counting change and looking for cash to pay for their items. Forbes has reported that the first game taking place in Kansas City at Kauffman Stadium will be rolling out Apple’s new NFC payments system. Apple Pay calls for a hassle-free payment system and everyone is hoping for shorter lines while purchasing food and products.

The AT&T Stadium located in San Francisco has also installed the new system. It has been noted that these two sports stadiums will be the first to incorporate the Cupertino-based company’s new mobile wallet. According to MasterCard’s Ed McLaughlin,

The ballpark experience lends itself well to simple, secure payments so fans get through concessions and back to the game quickly. We're thrilled to partner with MLBAM to bring contactless acceptance to the 2014 World Series. Through our longstanding relationship with MLB and MLBAM we are constantly looking for opportunities to create enhanced fan experiences both in-stadium and online, whether that's through advanced payment capabilities or delivering surprises to fans.
It has also been reported that ticket purchases in-app through Apple Pay’s online component will be coming in November of this year. Have you tried Apple Pay yet? How are you enjoying it? Let us know in the comments below.
