Fans can now minimize the time they spend trying to gain access into the stadium by more than half.This is after Football Kenya Federation recently introduced a cashless ticketing system.
Football Kenya Federation (FKF) says the introduction of KCB Pepea cards is an effort aimed at curbing ticket counterfeiting and improving accountability.
FKF CEO Robert Muthomi has urged fans to load their KCB Pepea cards at the collection points to allow for easy and quick access to the stadium during the upcoming friendly matches.
“For this reason I urge all fans to collect their cards for free and load them at any KCB branch, KCB Mtaani agents and at the Kencom Bus Stop to avoid last minute rush,” said Muthomi
The Pepea card, a first in Kenyan football is set to revolutionize football ticketing for the better and comes with simple guidelines on activation and loading.
All a user needs to do is to bend and peel the black area on the starter pack to reveal his/her pin number, then present the card to a KCB Mtaani agent with the amount of money he/she wishes to load and the card is ready for use.
Alternatively a user can load the card via Mpesa and upon activating the same, go to the Mpesa pay bill option, enter 522522 and the 16 digits indicated on the card on the business and account number sections respectively and tap the card at the stadium entrance for access.
Earlier, the CEO had appealed to fans to arrive early at the stadium so as to avoid being kept at the gate due to logistical and security procedures.
