You heard that right.... The Tampa Bay Rays have announced... that they will Not take cash at Tropicana Field this year...
On Friday, the team announced that Tropicana Field will become the first cash-free sports venue in North America.
The move intends to cut the average transaction time in half at concession stands, team stores, the box office and anywhere else where money traditionally changed hands.
"We have made significant investments each year to improve the ballpark experience for fans, including an overhaul of our approach to food and beverage since the beginning of our partnership with [hospitality partner] Levy," Rays vice president of strategy and development William Walsh said in a release. "This change will increase speed of service and reduce lines throughout the ballpark."
Among the methods that will now be accepted are credit cards, mobile pay and Rays gift cards.
