May 23 – Premier League Champions Manchester City have extended their partnership with Wega, the club’s Oﬃcial Acoustic Contactless Secured Card Payment Partner.
Wega via its payment card drives a loyalty and rewards programme for Man City fans. The City Wega card provides biometric login capabilities that then allows the card to emit a secure tone (the acoustic technology part) that allows a user to log in to the app to make payments. The process makes the card almost 100% secure.
Patrick Moynier, president of Wega said: “As a Fintech company offering an innovative digital financial platform, it is a clear fit to partner with a club that aims to stay at the forefront of innovation in service of their fans. Our technology and services will enhance the entire fan experience, and continuously add value with new features and opportunities to get closer to the heart of the club.”
Man City is generally a leader in the football digital space and frequently unafraid to embrace new technologies that improve fan experiences and engagement with the club. Damian Willoughby, Senior Vice President of Partnerships at City Football Group, said: “We are delighted to announce the renewal of our partnership with Wega, who are leading the way in developing innovative payment solutions for our fans. This is a unique partnership and we are excited to continue collaborating in the future.”
