BIRMINGHAM, England, October 4, 2010 - sQuid, the eMoney payments provider, together with smartcard ticketing
company MoFlow, has launched an online ticketing scheme for Midlands events
company Vodbull UK.
Vodbull Ranger Cards are contactless smartcards that are sold preloaded
with electronic tickets to some of the largest student events in Birmingham.
Venues include Luminar Leisure's Superclub Oceana, Gatecrasher Birmingham and
Walkabout bars. Once a card is registered, students are able to purchase
tickets for future events online. To gain entry to an event students simply
present their smartcard to a contactless reader, which will indicate to door
staff the number of tickets purchased.
sQuid has been creating cashless payment solutions in educational
campuses for some time, however this is the first ticketing scheme that they
have introduced. Dominic Pope, from sQuidcard, said "This is a great
opportunity for sQuid to expand our cashless payments solution, and we are
very excited to be working with MoFlow and Vodbull UK on this innovative new
There are plans to expand this scheme in the future to allow students to
budget their whole night out, including paying for taxis, food and drink
using their sQuid enabled Vodbull Ranger Card.

clients to make use of the sQuid eTicketing solution and we look forward to
working with them in the future".
Andrew Grierson, Events & Operations Manager at Vodbull, said, "We are
very pleased to be working with sQuid and MoFlow on such an innovative and
promising scheme. We are certain this will be very popular with the students
because of the reduced queuing times and ease of use. It will really help
students budget for a night out"
