Remember the days when cash was king? Not anymore at LMCU Ballpark for the West Michigan Whitecaps 2022 season.

You still need to bring your debit or credit card to LMCU Ballpark but you can leave your greenbacks at home.

In today's world because of COVID-19 and all these variants, businesses have to change their models in order to keep people safe inside their establishments. Cutting down long lines is a big part of that.

Let's not forget the number of germs that are found on cash money, and will new variants that pop up right and left, it is also important for the home of the West Michigan Whitecaps to keep their employees safe.

VP and General Manager Jim Jarecki told FOX 17,

We want our transactions to be faster, more convenient, and more secure. We began the transition to touchless payments throughout much of last season. We observed most fans used the cashless option. Even locations in the ballpark taking cash were being used by fans with a credit card.

Moving to the cashless system at LMCU Ballpark makes perfect sense. Reducing time fans spend in line, means more time watching the game and spending that time in the stands with loved ones and friends.

When attending LMCU Ballpark during the 2022 season, have your debit or credit card ready when you drive in because parking will be cashless. Keep that card ready for concessions, their retail store, hospitality decks, and 4Topps seating areas.
