Wingnuts Ditch Long-Time Cashless Payment System at Lawrence-Dumont Stadium

WichitaWingnutsLogoPRESS RELEASE – The Wichita Wingnuts announced Wednesday that Lawrence-Dumont Stadium will be accepting cash at all events for the 2013 season.

The announcement follows the completion of the Wingnuts’ five-year agreement with Total Venue Control (TVC) signed prior to the club’s inaugural season in 2008. In addition to cash, debit and credit cards will still be accepted at all Wingnuts and NBC World Series games. The transition applies to all points of sale at the stadium, including concession stands, skyboxes, in-stadium vendors, and the team gift shop.

“We are very excited that fans will be able to use cash at our stadium this year,” said Wingnuts’ General Manager Josh Robertson. “Total Venue Control has been a great partner of ours since the formation of the team, but with our agreement expiring after last year, we have decided to explore the benefits of providing a cash ballpark. We wish Cameron Wall and his staff the best of luck, and will continue to serve as a reference for their company.”

Existing TVC cards with outstanding balances may be redeemed at Lawrence-Dumont Stadium up until June 1st, 2013.

The 2013 season of Wichita Wingnuts baseball begins Thursday, May 16th against the Kansas City T-Bones at Lawrence-Dumont Stadium. Prior to the game, a ceremony honoring the life of bench coach Brian Rose will take place. For season tickets, group outings, or party packages, call the Wingnuts’ main office at (316) 264-NUTS, or visit the Wingnuts’ official website at http://www.wichitawingnuts.com.

    Never understood why one would want to make it more difficult to get people to spend money. Sometimes you have to think things through and not get caught up in the shiny object.

    Long time? 2008 is far from long time…

      Certainly not in the context of the history of the universe, but, from my perspective, having this system in place for five years — since the launch of the franchise — is a long time. And, I have no doubt there are local fans in town cheering today and saying, “This is has been a long time coming. Thank you, thank you!”

    This is great news. It was incredibly annoying using the Wingnuts’ payment system during my visit to Lawrence-Dumont.
