TAMPA BAY – The Tampa Bay Lightning are teaming up with Chase to offer fans the opportunity to use Apple Pay, the easy, secure and private way to pay, at concessions and retail locations at AMALIE Arena for all games and events.

Beginning on November 28, fans attending Lightning home games and events at AMALIE Arena will have the option to use Apple Pay at all point of sale locations for concessions and retail stores to make quick and easy purchases. In addition, fans that use their Chase card with Apple Pay will have the opportunity to receive special offers throughout the season. Chase Brand Ambassadors will be at AMALIE Arena at all points of sale to help fans with this new initiative.

“The Lightning have made a commitment to our great fans to make their game-experience as easy and fun as possible,” Lightning CEO Steve Griggs said. “We’d like to thank our partners at Chase for helping us create a convenient and safe experience for our fans when purchasing food and merchandise at AMALIE Arena when attending Lightning games and other events.”

The Lightning are continuing their efforts to make AMALIE Arena a world-class facility by being a leader in innovation and technology. Apple Pay provides a private, secure and simple way to pay. At AMALIE Arena, Apple Pay will work with iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and Apple Watch.

Security and privacy are at the core of Apple Pay. When you add a credit card, debit card or payroll card with Apple Pay, the actual card numbers are not stored on the device or on Apple servers. Instead, a unique Device Account Number is assigned, encrypted and securely stored in the Secure Element on a user’s device. Each transaction is authorized with a one-time unique dynamic security code.
