Bar Tap opens at Wembley

Fans attending joining us under the arch this yearcan expect to see an enhanced Wembley Stadium connected by EE, following a major programme of investment and refurbishment work over the winter period.

Wembley Stadium’s foodservice partner, Delaware North, have implemented a major change in the introduction of a new, frictionless bar, which will enable supporters to purchase drinks quicker and more conveniently.

Situated on level one, Bar Tap uses the latest technology so that customers no longer need to wait in line at a dedicated pay point. Users simply tap their card or mobile wallet on entry, pick up what they need and walk out, without the need to wait.

The technology used tracks customer movements, calculates what they have purchased and debits the customer’s card on exit. Wembley is the first national stadium in Europe to introduce the frictionless retail service.

Paul Scannell, Head of Hospitality at Wembley Stadium said, "We are thrilled to introduce our first food and drink service with cutting-edge frictionless technology. Wembley Stadium is constantly seeking innovative solutions to enhance the stadium experience, and the launch of Bar Tap represents a significant step forward in our mission to elevate the fan experience."

Lewis Blake, Head of Concessions at Delaware North said, “The concessions team at Wembley Stadium have delivered something truly revolutionary with Bar Tap. The frictionless technology used means that fans can shop, pay, and get back to the action in a matter of seconds.
