Welford Road is now cashless on matchdays with the aim of reducing queue times and faster checkout times during the season.
WHAT DOES CASHLESS MEAN?
The move to a cashless stadium means ALL transactions INSIDE the stadium will be via card or contactless payment.
This refers to all facilities accessed after a customer has gone through a turnstile or stadium doors.
WHERE WILL CONTACTLESS BE AVAILABLE?
Card and contactless payment will be the only method of payment available at all bars and food kiosks, including hospitality lounges.
FOOD & DRINK
In 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 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 refurbished ABC Bar and Crumbie Lounge have cashless facilities only, as well as the Captain’s Bar, Third Half and Grubber Pie Co bars in the Robin Hood Stand.
Food vendors 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 on the plaza will be cashless.
The Tigers ticket office on Aylestone Road in the Robin Hood Stand will accept cash and cashless payments.
Both Tigers stores on the plaza and next to the ticket office will accept cash and cashless payments.
Programme stalls situated outside of the ground will take cash payment, with stalls inside the stadium cashless only.
