This cashless society thing is going to be a little difficult for carol singers and penny for the guy kids. Maybe they'll find getting issued with a POS machine a bit tricky. :blink:

Yeah. You’re saying it’s easier to be disciplined with your spending.

 

I guess we can rule out you being DC then. 

 

Maybe, maybe not.

I have been supporting Sheffield Wednesday since I was a small boy in the late sixties.

In that time, I must have spent Thousands of pounds on Food and Drink inside the ground.

To me, a drink of Tea, Coffee or possibly Bovril and a pie, and an occasional Pint is part of what is often called the "Match day Experience".

 

That spending, inside the Ground, has now, sadly, come to an end.

It would appear that every kiosk in the North Stand has gone "Cashless".

 

The club are now Refusing to Accept Cash payments.(LEGAL TENDER)

 

I will not be "told how to pay" by the club. 

 

I will, of course, continue to purchase food and drink on match days, all of it OUTSIDE THE GROUND......

 

 

Get over yourself. You mean you have never bought anything using a card etc. Its 2019 not 1966.

Of course he has 

Here's an early example of a similar one 

Pontefract would have used .

This one was an "Adult SUFC issue"

I for one will sadly miss standing behind some shovel handed numpty picking through half a ton of change barely able to calculate how two and five pences will add up to two cups of Bovril and a bag of munchies, leaving me with about 8 seconds to down a freezing pint of Amstel, that has been served to by someone that seems to have the ability to slow down time.

 

Yeah sad times.

Let's be clear it was because all the serving staff were fiddling the cash. Turnover from catering will be double as a result
