What's this all about?

New Season Ticket Cards

"Parc y Scarlets will become an access-control stadium with the advent of brand new technology allowing the region to fully engage with supporters and attendees on matchdays."

What's an access control stadium?

Well it's already access control - you can't get in without a ticket!
I'm intrigued.

If it’s like other stadiums, the new season tickets will have a chip in. Turn styles are then in manned and you scan the card to gain entry, much like contact less payments. Should speed up the entry and also gives the club info on who enters the ground at what gate etc. They can be expanded to pay for goods, drinks etc where you can pre- load the card with monies. Would be really useful if we could pay for drinks etc , would speed up service and reduce money handling by the servers.

That's what I had assumed. I didn't know you could also pay for drinks etc.

Plus if you don’t go, they can follow you up with an email to say, “sorry we missed you” etc.

Good move. More data to the club so they can focus their efforts on satisfying the needy hordes, as well as the less needy.

They’ve also got more info as to who they can send the tailored message to encourage the fringe followers to keep the faith.

Paying for drinks car be programmed into the cards, but would need the tills changed I presume, so probably won’t have the option initially. It may be that they are introducing it solely for access and data collection as mentioned. Who knows payments may come at a later date!

The technology for contactless payment is becoming pretty ubiquitous. It's about time the Parc caught up with the times

Last yr I went to the Sarries match. Mrs dropped me off at the gate while she and my girls went into the big smoke. As I walked up to the bar I remembered I'd left my wallet in the front of the car! 

 Could have been in for a dry evening or begging Redzep for some beer tokens. Thankfully they had contactless at every till. Pretty basic these days.

Will this mean that all regions will give actual attendances? I know ST holders who only go to 2 or 3 games a year but will still be counted for attendance figures. Could be savings in stewarding as I think numbers of stewards needed is based on attendance

A work colleague visited y parc this Summer for the first time for a concert, spoke to him the week afterward and he was completely perplexed that we didnt have the means to pay for drinks on card saying he would have spent £20-30 on drinks between him and his wife, which didn't happen due to them not bringing cash.

it would be great if the cards had an NFC chip and you could top it up and pay for drinks etc on your season ticket.

Some stadiums have a simpler system where its just a barcode scanner (Madejski?).
If the club are serious about having some kind of reloadable prepaid card or a loyalty application on a normal credit card then it's a lot more outlay. We do need terminals at the outlets if nothing else.

I don’t see the point of using ST cards as payment cards, we all have debit or credit cards. Maybe scan them like loyalty cards

Thats my thought.  If you need to pre-load the card tehn come the last game of the season you'll be forcing down beers to ensure no money is left on the card.  Or, you'd just continue using cash to avoid running out or over loading the card.
