Visa Hits Winter Games With Collectible Payment Devices For Athletes, Fans

Special to NYSportsJournalism.com

November 8, 2017: Visa, a top tier partner with the International Olympic Committee, is using its position as the exclusive payment technology provider for the 2018 Olympic and Paralympic Games to launch three wearable payment devices.

Visa said it has created NFC (near field communication)-enabled payment gloves, commemorative stickers and Olympic pins that “allow fans and athletes to complete seamless and secure payments with a simple tap at any contactless-enabled terminal.”

During the Games, all three wearables will be available for purchase at  Visa vending machines in Olympic Superstores. Visa is implementing more than 1,000 NFC-enabled POP terminals across the Olympic Venue in South Korea.

The financial firm’s presence at the Games will also be felt though multi-platform marketing and via a global Team Visa, with U.S. athletes and icons including Jamie Anderson, Meryl Davis, Sarah Hendrickson, Gus Kenworthy, Chole Kim, Hilary Knight, Oksana Masters, Angela Ruggiero, Mikaela Shiffrin, Maggie Voisin, Charlie White and Davis Wise.

“We are looking forward to transforming the payment experience for everyone who attends the upcoming Olympic Winter Games in PyeongChang,” Iain Jamieson, Korea country manager for Visa, said in a statement. “At Visa, we have been working tirelessly to ensure all of the Olympic venues are equipped with the very latest payment capabilities to provide the best experience possible for all of our clients and guests.”

Visa said it worked with Lotte Card, the financial arm of South Korean-based retail giant Lotte Department Store, “to produce and make these new prepaid payment wearables available for purchase in Korea.

Stickers and pins can be purchased from Lotte Card’s customer centers in Korea and the Lotte Card Web site.

The sticker collection includes eight distinct designs including Soohorang — the official PyeongChang 2018 mascot — and the Korean flag. Four unique lapel pins will feature custom PyeongChang 2018 designs

According to Mikaela Shiffrin, “It is important to me, as a Winter Olympian, to work with a brand like Visa that not only supports a diverse group of athletes, but also enables an enhanced fan experience for those at to The Games. Olympic pins are always the most coveted collectibles, these Visa pins really up the ante.”
