THE club are today delighted to announce the launch of QPR Pay - a new, fully integrated real time payment, stadium access and loyalty solution that will be available to Season Ticket Holders and Members from the 2019/20 season. QPR Pay is a multi-use payment and venue access card, which can also be used in any Mastercard accepting retailer globally.
The QPR Pay product has been created in collaboration with our CRM agency Sports Alliance and fintech payments partner QRails. The club is proud to announce that we are the first professional football club in the UK to launch an integrated payment solution, which does not require supporters to prefund the card.
2019/20 Season Ticket Holders and Members will receive a new QPR Pay card displaying the Mastercard logo, which will provide them with the following benefits:
- The option to link to their bank account and use as a contactless card for use at any facility that accepts Mastercard payments.
- Tokenisation to work with e-wallets such as Apple Pay and Google Pay, for supporters who would prefer to use the digital option.
- 2% QPR Cash rewards on all their purchases up to £1,000 which can be redeemed in store or online on Hoops merchandise. For more details on QPR Cash please click HERE.
- The ability to use their QPR Pay card to gain access to Loftus Road on a match day by either scanning the physical card or scanning via their mobile device. (Please note, all existing season cards will become invalid for the next season and will be replaced by the QPR Pay cards, which are set to be dispatched next summer ahead of the 2019/20 season).
QPR Commercial Director, Euan Inglis, told www.qpr.co.uk: "We have been working on the QPR pay product for nearly a year now. The product is a first of its kind in football, with the fully integrated real-time payment option particularly exciting as this will allow our Season Ticket holders and Members to benefit with the award of additional QPR Cash from their third-party spending. We see QPR Pay as the start of a planned digital roll out over the coming seasons. QPR Pay will very much act as an interface to new bolt-on technology that is currently in the pipeline."
All Season Ticket Holders and Members will receive a QPR Pay card, which can be activated at qpr.co.uk when signed in to their QPR Club Account. Supporters have the option to only use their card for stadium access, as there is no obligation on their part to utilise the payment aspect of the card and to benefit from the QPR Cash rewards.
In addition, the club will be working with its portfolio of partners to create specific promotions which will provide QPR Cash accruing opportunities for supporters that activate the QPR Pay card or app. The club is also working with stakeholders on several initiatives which could potentially provide additional discounts and best in market rates on certain products.
For more information on QPR Pay please view our FAQ’s HERE or watch our video above. Supporters eligible for the scheme will be emailed further details in the coming months.
Please also note that the 2019/20 season ticket loyalty window will open at 2:00 pm tomorrow (18th December) with all supporters able to secure their seat at Loftus Road.
