Each Storm membership card will be embedded with the new Vix SmartSite technology, which supports contactless reader hardware throughout the AAMI Park.

The cards will integrate payments, grant access to areas of the stadium and hold loyalty rewards.

Melbourne Storm marketing director Mike Billing added: “We’re making it easier for members to buy food, drinks and merchandise and connect with the club through the smartcard and mobile app, with the added bonus of earning loyalty points to access money-can’t-buy experiences, Storm and sponsor products through our Lightning Rewards programme.”
