Tampa Bay Rays First Pro Team To Have Cashless Stadiums

Tropicana Field , the home of Major League Baseball's Tampa Bay Rays, has become the first pro sports stadium in North America to go cashless. The Rays said on Saturday (February 9th) that cash will no longer be accepted at concession stands, team stores, the ticket office and any other points of sale, with patrons able to use other payment options, including credit cards, gift cards and  mobile  payment apps. If someone only has cash on them, they'll have to exchange it for gift cards. The goal of going cashless is to increase service speed and reduce lines, with the Rays saying that testing showed cashless payments took up to half the time of cash transactions. The Rays may be first in going cashless, but they won't be the last. The NFL, for one, announced earlier this month that they want to have a cashless Super Bowl by 2025. ( Fox Business )
