Some Mobile Payments 'Magic' Comes to OrlandoIt’s almost time for tip-off for Apple Pay in Orlando.

As part of what the NBA franchise calls “Orlando Magic’s continuing commitment to the fan experience and technology,” the team, along with Chase and E15 Group, will be integrating Apple Pay into the Amway Center, home of the Orland Magic basketball organization.

The Magic becomes the first team in the NBA to offer fans access to Apple Pay, which will debut in Amway Center when the Magic host the Utah Jazz tomorrow.

“The Magic are committed to our fans and their experience and are continually looking for ways to innovate in order to make that experience legendary,” says Magic CEO Alex Martins. “We are thrilled to join our partners Chase and Levy Restaurants to be the first NBA team to integrate Apple Pay into its home venue and specifically the Amway Center, the most technologically advanced arena in North America.”

Beginning on December 19, the team announced yesterday, the Apple Pay option will be available at several Levy concession and Magic retail locations throughout Amway Center. Additional locations will be added throughout the season, the formal announcement confirmed.

Apple Pay works with iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Within apps, Apple Pay is also compatible with iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3.
