The SSE Arena in Wembley, London is going fully contactless this weekend as it welcomes 1,000 fans for the World Heavyweight Championship clash between Anthony Joshua and Kubrat Pulev.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, mobile-only digital ticketing is being used exclusively via The SSE Arena Wembley app, which is powered by Realife Tech.

In addition to using the mobile app to get into the arena, the app will be the only way of ordering food and drinks during the event on Saturday 12 December. Those ordering food and drinks will be asked to remain in their seats until they receive a notification to say their order is ready to pick up, further reducing crowd movement and congestion in the arena.

“We are thrilled to be bringing fans back for the Heavyweight title match between Anthony Joshua and Kubrat Pulev,” said John Drury, VP and General Manager for The SSE Arena, Wembley. “The comfortability and security of our fans is our highest priority, and utilising Realife Tech will allow visitors to experience live events in a safe, convenient, and enjoyable way.”
