The Cleveland Cavaliers partnered with food provider Aramark to allow fans to order and pay for their drinks via Apple Business Chat and Apple Pay

Cleveland Cavaliers fans have one less reason to leave their seats while watching games at the Quicken Loans Arena. The basketball team partnered with Aramark, the court's food supplier, to test a program that will allow game attendees in certain areas of the stadium to order beer and water through Apple Business Chat.

To use the service, iPhone users can scan a QR code on the back of one of the arena seats with their camera, which will open up an iMessage conversation with prompts on how to make and pay for the order using Apple Pay. The service will be available for the remainder of the Cavs' 2018-19 home schedule.

“The integration of Apple Business Chat with the ordering process is not only fan-friendly and easily accessible, it’s reflective of fans’ changing expectations and behaviors and we’re looking forward to Cavs and Monsters fans giving it a try,” said the District Manager for Aramark’s Sports & Entertainment division, Kevin Kearney in a press release.
