MasterCard helps Apple Pay step up to the plate for MLB All-Star Game

Ahead of the start of Major League Baseball's All-Star Week, MasterCard is helping to bring Apple Pay to Cincinnati, Ohio's Great American Ball Park. Apple Pay users will be able to buy food and merchandise, as usual, while MasterCard customers using Apple Pay will have the chance to win something as part of the company's Priceless Surprise program.

From MasterCard:

MasterCard cardholders who use Apple Pay at contactless merchandise and concession acceptance locations at the T-Mobile All-Star FanFest taking place July 10th through July 14th or in-stadium at Great American Ball Park from July 12th through July 14th could get a little something extra – from All-Star branded premiums, autographed memorabilia to prepaid cards and more.

MasterCard has been fairly aggressive in helping to roll out contactless payments, and Apple Pay in particular, at sporting events, earlier this year helping to bring it to the PGA Tour.
