Seattle’s CenturyLink Field goes cashless

SEATTLE — You won’t have to worry about digging around for change the next time you’re at CenturyLink Field.

Starting Tuesday, all concession stands, retail, vendors/hawkers and on-site parking will only accept credit, debit and prepaid cards.

The Seattle Dragons XFL home opener on Saturday will put the change to the test.

Those who don’t have a debit or credit card can use one of 10 cash-to-card kiosks around the stadium and event center where they can put in cash and get a prepaid card. You can load $1 to $500 on the cards and there is no transaction fee.

The prepaid cards can be used inside or outside the stadium, so those who have money left over on the cards after an event can use it anywhere major cards are accepted. The cards cannot be reloaded.

The switch was made to make sales go quicker, so people can spend more time in their seats and less time standing in lines.

CenturyLink Field Event Center and WAMU Theater are now also cashless. The box office will still accept cash.

The kiosks are located at:

  • Field Plaza (Sections 138 & 131)
  • Main Concourse (Sections 103 & 119)
  • Club Level (Sections 213 & 231)
  • Upper Level (Sections 304, 330 & 340)
  • CenturyLink Field Event Center/WAMU Theater

Stadium officials said before the switch, 75 percent of purchases there were made without cash.
