Connect Yorkshire member and Yorkshire payment tech firm, Yorkshire Payments, teams up with John Smith’s Stadium
Payment technology company Yorkshire Payments has secured a multi-year deal with the John Smith’s Stadium in Huddersfield.
The Brighouse-based firm has secured a deal with operator Kirklees Stadium Development Limited (KSDL) to supply the stadium with contactless payment terminals at key areas across the site, including entrance turnstiles, bars, fan zones and hospitality suites.
Michaela Brook, client relations manager at The John Smith’s Stadium, said: “Improving the speed of card transactions during football and rugby matches and events at the stadium in order to provide the most efficient method of payment for fans and customers is the priority with the new contactless terminals.
“Yorkshire Payments have an excellent track record for rapid service and are based locally, and this was a key factor in our decision making.”
News of the partnership follows the firm investing £200k into enhancing its technology earlier this year.
James Howard, founder and managing director at Yorkshire Payments, added: “Securing a contract at the home of Huddersfield Town Football Club, a team which is close tour hearts as a business, is fantastic. We look forward to working more closely with the KSDL team moving forward.”
