Welford Road goes cashless | Advice for fans

Ahead of the first home game of the 2019/20 season at Welford Road, the club recently announced that fans will be able to benefit from cashless facilities around the ground on matchdays.

Designed to help reduce queuing times alongside increased security and faster checkout times, the club and catering partner Levy UK has put together advice for fans attending matches during the season.


The move to a cashless stadium see’s all payments INSIDE the stadium take on card or contactless payment. 

The term ‘INSIDE’ the stadium refers to all facilities that can be accessed once a customer has entered via a turnstile around the ground. The exception to this being The Final Whistle Bar in the Holland & Barrett Stand.


Card and contactless payment will be the only method of payment available at all bars and food kiosks, including hospitality lounges.  

This includes the Final Whistle Bar in the lower concourse of the Holland & Barrett Stand and The Pack, The Backline and The Champions Bar in the upper concourse.

Food vendors situated inside the stadium will also only take card payments. 

The Droglites Bar and newly named Scrum Dogs, Blindside Kitchen and Grubber Pie Co. areas in the Mattioli Woods Stand as well as the club’s Tryline Bar will only take cashless payments. 

In The Breedon Stand, the newly refurbished ABC Bar and Crumbie Lounge offer cashless facilities as well as the Captain’s Bar, Third Half and Grubber Pie Co bars in the Robin Hood Stand.

Food vendors stationed outside of the stadium, including on the plaza outside the Holland & Barrett Stand, will be able to accept both cashless and cash payments. The marquee situated on the plaza will be cashless. 

The Tigers ticket office situated on Aylestone Road in the Robin Hood Stand will be able to accept cash and cashless payments. 

Both Tigers stores on the plaza and next to the Tigers ticket office will be able to accept cash and cashless payments. 

Programme seller stalls situated outside of the ground will be fitted for both cash and cashless payments, with stalls inside the stadium only taking cashless. 


Supporters will be able to make purchases one of two ways

Debit or Credit Card | Simply use your debit or credit card at any of the above pay points. Payments up to £30 can also be made using contactless. 

Smart devices | Use Apple Pay for iPhone and Apple Watch and Google Pay for Android devices at pay points around the stadium. 

A reminder that SwipeStation units are no longer in operation around the ground.
