CaixaBank, a retail banking group based in Spain, announced on Monday it has teamed up with RCD Espanyol de Barcelona to launch the Spanish football team mobile app. The duo reported that the app will include an integrated “wallet” in order to boost commercial services, creating a cashless stadium in LaLiga
“Fans will be able to order and collect everything they need to enjoy a match from their mobiles without having to queue or bring money or cards with them, or ordering products from home, bringing cashless to the RCDE Stadium.”
The app’s features include the following:
- Access to the stadium without bringing physical match ticket
- The ability to securely lend season ticket
- Purchasing food, drink, and merchandise to collect at a specified time without having to queue
While speaking about the app, María Alsina, CaixaBank’s Regional Director, noted that the bank is working closely with all the football clubs that it has sponsorship agreements to support initiatives that improve the fans’ user experience.
“This is the first step to grow and add value proposals in the marketplaces with clubs and to improve the interaction between fans and their clubs.”
The RCD Espanyol de Barcelona app will be released at the end of February 2020.
