Paying for concessions gets easier at BankAtlantic Center

BankAtlantic Center is finally equipped with the ability to accept credit cards at all concession stands. Starting at Tuesday night’s Van Halen concert at the Sunrise arena and continuing with the Panthers-Montreal Canadiens game on Wednesday, the credit card systems will be ready to go.

I reported in September that the arena operator and Panthers owner Sunrise Sports & Entertainment was planning the upgrade to credit card systems, as a convenience for fans and to speed up service at concession stands. The Heat has offered fans the opportunity to use credit cards at AmericanAirlines Arena for at least the past five years. Dolphin Stadium also allows fans to use credit cards for concessions at Dolphins and Marlins games.

How do you pay for food and beverages at sporting events when you have the choice of using cash or credit cards? Are you glad BankAtlantic Center is finally allowing the use of credit cards?
