Partnership expands Shift4’s Las Vegas presence powering mobile commerce and frictionless payment processing.
LAS VEGAS (January 5, 2022) – T-Mobile Arena, home to the NHL’s Vegas Golden Knights and the premier destination for top sports and entertainment events on the Las Vegas Strip, has partnered with Shift4 (NYSE: FOUR), the leader in integrated payment processing, to deliver the latest commerce technologies to the venue. Shift4 will power payments at T-Mobile Arena for all food & beverage purchases, using the company’s VenueNext point-of-sale solution to streamline the entire fan event experience.
In addition to point-of-sale, VenueNext will integrate its mobile commerce platform with AXS, T-Mobile Arena’s official ticketing partner, for use within VenueNext’s mobile wallet and fan loyalty offerings. Fans can utilize the app at all food & beverage locations throughout the arena to order and pay for products.
“As the industry leader in entertainment and sports event programming, our top priority is to deliver memorable guest experiences,” said Dan Quinn, T-Mobile Arena’s General Manager. “The partnership with Shift4 and VenueNext will allow us to maintain the most up-to-date technologies while enhancing our mobile and digital capabilities.”
This partnership will serve as a one-stop-shop solution for T-Mobile Arena, reducing overall technology costs and complexity by reducing the use of high-cost hardware.

Our frictionless payment solution will significantly improve the purchasing experience for fans.”
