T-Mobile Arena (US), home to the National Hockey League’s (NHL’s) Vegas Golden Knights and the premier destination for top sports and entertainment events on the Las Vegas Strip, has partnered with Shift4, the leader in integrated payment processing, to deliver the latest commerce technologies to the venue.

The ‘Shift4’ stated that Shift4 will power payments at T-Mobile Arena for all food and beverage purchases, using the company’s VenueNext point-of-sale solution to streamline the entire fan event experience.

T-Mobile Arena, the 20,000-seat venue located on the Las Vegas Strip (US) between Park MGM (mega resort hotel and casino) and New York-New York (hotel and casino), opened on April 6th, 2016. The arena hosts more than 100 events annually including major headline entertainment, awards shows, Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), boxing, basketball and other sporting events, family shows, and special events.

The T-Mobile Arena also is the home of the Vegas Golden Knights, a National Hockey League (NHL) expansion team and the City’s first professional sports team, as well as UFC’s exclusive Las Vegas arena destination. The venue, named the No. 1 venue on Billboard Magazine’s 2018 Arena Power List as well as the ‘Best New Major Concert Venue’ by the Pollstar Magazine in 2016, features 50 luxury suites, more than two dozen private loge boxes, complete broadcast facilities, and other specially designed exclusive hospitality offerings and fan amenities destined to create a guest experience second to none.

Shift4 is an American payment processing company based in Allentown, Pennsylvania. The company, founded in 1999 by the then 16-year-old Jared Isaacman, processes payments for over 200,000 businesses in the retail, hospitality, leisure, and restaurant industries.

Shift4 is boldly redefining commerce by simplifying complex payments ecosystems across the world. As the leader in commerce-enabling technology, Shift4 powers billions of transactions annually for hundreds of thousands of businesses in virtually every industry.

The ‘Shift4’ further stated that in addition to point-of-sale, VenueNext (leading provider of next-generation point-of-sale solutions) will integrate its mobile commerce platform with AXS, T-Mobile Arena’s official ticketing partner, for use within VenueNext’s mobile wallet and fan loyalty offerings. Fans can utilize the app at all food and beverage locations throughout the arena to order and pay for products.

Said Dan Quinn, T-Mobile Arena’s General Manager, “As the industry leader in entertainment and sports event programing, our top priority is to deliver memorable guest experiences. The partnership with Shift4 and VenueNext will allow us to maintain the most up-to-date technologies while enhancing our mobile and digital capabilities.”

This partnership will serve as a one-stop-shop solution for T-Mobile Arena, reducing overall technology costs and complexity by reducing the use of high-cost hardware.

Stated Anthony Perez, Head of Enterprise Sales at Shift4, “The T-Mobile Arena is an entertainment beacon in Las Vegas and we’re beyond excited to roll out Shift4 and VenueNext’s mobile commerce ecosystem throughout the arena. Our frictionless payment solution will significantly improve the purchasing experience for fans.”
