Major League Baseball’s Washington Nationals are creating a newly renovated club and high-end fan experience at Nationals Park.

The upgrades are being made after the Nationals partnered with FIS for the new Champions Club and enhanced payment solutions to enhance the fan experience at the ballpark in Washington DC.

A first-of-its-kind analytics platform designed by FIS will be utilised to bring more personalised experiences to fans.

Worldpay from FIS will allow Nationals fans to seamlessly pay for tickets, food, beverages, merchandise and sports betting at the ballpark. 

Bruce Lowthers, president, FIS, said:

The Nationals are raising the bar for technology innovation at the ballpark. Through our collaboration, fans can continue to make purchases effortlessly and spend more time watching the game. We’re thrilled to be a part of the Nationals’ game time experience and their vision to put their fans first.

The FIS Champions Club will commemorate the District of Columbia’s rich and ever-growing baseball history and display the team’s awards and accolades, including the 2019 Commissioner’s Trophy from the Nationals’ World Series win. 

Fans will enjoy upgraded décor and an elevated food and beverage experience, including gourmet burgers, dessert stations, signature cocktails, all-inclusive fountain beverages and more. The FIS Champions Club will welcome fans on Opening Day 2022.

Alan Gottlieb, COO of Lerner Sports Group said:

We are thrilled to partner with FIS to bring our fans an unparalleled experience in D.C. sports. The Club renovation will be a stunning tribute to baseball’s history in D.C. and give our fans a best-in-class experience. In addition, FIS’s technology will be an important part of our frictionless payments strategy and will help us provide a more personalized, streamlined ballpark experience to everyone.
