Ticketmaster is gearing up to integrate Apple Pay into its website and app later this year, the technology giant’s chief executive revealed.

Tim Cook announced during Apple’s Q2 earnings call, according to 9to5Mac that Ticketmaster will soon allow customers to purchase tickets to events using Apple’s mobile payments platform.

Apple Pay is also reportedly still looking to expand throughout sporting venues, with American football league the NFL planning a rollout in time for the 2019 season.

Cook also revealed Apple Pay will rollout across public transport systems in New York City in July.
