Darlington Football Club - Customer Case Study Darlington FC was formed in 1883 and has over 125 years of football experience, playing in the Evostick Northern Premier League.

As well as match day tickets, The Darlington ‘Quakers’ retail outlets sell a range of gifts, souvenirs and replica shirts. Handepay has provided the latest mobile chip and PIN machine, allowing them the flexibility to take card payments both in their home ground’s onsite shop, and their mobile outlet for when the club plays away.

Dave Mills, club director, says “Having the mobile chip and PIN machine has really benefited us and our fans. With less and less people carrying cash in their pockets, we can now offer a more convenient way for them to pay.

The feedback from fans has been great and we’re already seeing increased sales in our outlets, which we can invest back into the club."

Dave urges anyone thinking of taking card payments to speak to Handepay, “The way they do business is very professional – they are always helpful and quick to give you a response."
