PayPass Football

MasterCard has teamed with MBNA, the Seattle Seahawks and Baltimore Ravens Football Clubs to integrate its “PayPass” contactless payment technology into the Seahawks and Ravens “Extra Points” credit card programs. Both Qwest Field and M&T Bank Stadium will accept MasterCard PayPass cards at the point-of-sale, beginning with the 2005 football season. Last year, the Philadelphia Eagles launched a similar implementation of “PayPass” acceptance at its stadium. MasterCard is continuing to explore further deployments of “PayPass” at sports arenas throughout 2005, providing sports teams and merchants with the opportunity to offer new payment and reward applications and increase customer loyalty.
