English Premier League champions Manchester City Football Club are now offering fans at their Etihad Stadium a chance to pay for items using Fingopay.
The contract caterer at Manchester City’s ground, F3, has introduced the VeinID payment system to Joe’s Bar in the East Stand.
Fingopay customers can link their vein signatures with their payment cards to pay using just their finger, which is viewed by the industry as an ultra-secure way to pay and an example of a biometric technology expected to increase in popularity in the months ahead.
The Etihad Stadium project is powered by Fingopay’s partnerships with F3, Verteda, and Bizie.
