Over the coming weeks, the merchant terminals in Ticket Office and the Club Shop will also be upgraded, offering contactless payment solutions which will speed up transactions and reduce the length of queues on match days.
Chief Executive David Bottomley said: “We are delighted to welcome Sporting Pay to the Club and upgrade our merchant terminals to accept modern day card payments throughout the Club, whilst also improving our merchant services rate. This is a great stride forward and long overdue to bring ourselves into the 21st century and we are proud to be doing this with the best provider in the business.”

Both the Club and ourselves are keen to build this unique partnership which not only benefits the club but the many associated businesses that support and surround the Club in Rochdale as we are now able to offer them the most competitive merchant services rates in the industry supported by the latest payment processing technology.”
