In January, Tottenham announced that the US-based tech company Fast had become its “official one-click payment partner”, offering a one-button payment for purchases in the Spurs store and in the stadium.
Last week, Fast went bankrupt. That was really fast. “Sometimes pioneers don’t make it to the top of the mountain,” CEO and co-founder Dom Holland said in a statement.
“We ran out of money,” an employee told Protocol website, leading some to question whether Daniel Levy’s famous negotiation skills drove the company into action.
However, it is understood that Tottenham have not received any payments from the now-extinct company.

Blackpool chief executive Ben Mansford did the decent thing after Tangerine goalkeeper Dan Grimshaw sustained a head injury at Preston on Tuesday night, leaving his place in the managers’ box and heading to Royal Preston Hospital to check on the player.
However, hospital staff refused to let him in, as protocols prevented visitors from seeing Grimshaw.
Mansford was forced to return to Lytham, and his team’s miserable night compounded with a 1-0 defeat. Grimshaw, 24, is now out of hospital, with no timeline set for his return.

Florentino Perez is seen by many observers as one of the most arrogant and demanding club presidents in world football.
And the Real Madrid star, who was the main architect of the failed Europa League proposals, did little to dispel the allegations when he left Stamford Bridge last week after his side’s 3-1 win over Chelsea in the Champions League.
On a sweltering evening, the 75-year-old was seen walking toward the waiting conveyance with his entourage when he stopped and demanded that one of his employees put his coat on for him.
sports calendar He understands that one of the early runners-up in the race to become the next president of the US Olympic and Paralympic Committee is Gene Sykes, a former Goldman Sachs executive.
Sykes played a key role in Los Angeles’ successful bid to host the 2028 Games and also has a close relationship with LA28 President Casey Wasserman. If Sykes succeeds, it would be a major coup for Wasserman, who already has a very strong influence on the USOPC board of directors.
Wasserman also runs one of the world’s most successful sports marketing agencies, and he’ll have to be smart to avoid accusations of conflict of interest.
There is growing concern among Leeds Rhinos fans that Jimmy Peacock will not be inducted into the club’s Hall of Fame.
The club, which had a disastrous start to its Premier League campaign, attracts four former players each year to dinner at Headingley. In 2021 they were Kevin Seinfeld, Jim Bro, Don Robinson and Alan Smith. She started in 2017, two years after Peacock left the unicorn as one of the most decorated stars in their history.
He won 12 major titles, including six major finals. Only Seinfeld (seven) and Danny McGuire (eight) have won more Grand Finals for France, and Peacock has also won three with the Bradford Bulls.
Where is the shop window?
Interesting to see Wayne Rooney’s surprise assignment on Sky Sports’ Sunday Night Football program last week.
Derby County manager Wayne Rooney (above) could have put himself in the window for a job in the Premier League with an entertaining and glamorous look on Monday Night Football
Sources revealed that the derby manager, who dissected a number of problems with his colleague Scocer Jimmy Carragher, instigated his appearance on the show, leaving some to wonder if he was putting himself in the store window to get a job in one of the English Premier League clubs.
Rooney, whose side now appears headed into League One, would have done his chances little damage in what was an attractive slot.
Everton angry at the national clash
The view inside Everton at the moment is that the club cannot take a break either on or off the pitch.
Officials were furious that they were forced to play against Manchester United on the same day as the Grand National.
Police are asking league match planners to ensure that if any of Merseyside’s teams are at home on a national weekend, they will have a ‘low-level match’, which takes place on Sunday. “We were united on Saturday,” one insider sighed.
This meant that the Toffees’ fighting relegation team had to provide enough security personnel to continue the match.
Meanwhile, some at Goodison have questioned whether their stance on providing tickets to match officials’ families conflicts with them.
Most aspects of the overhead fly allow relatives of the stewards and assistants to access the lounge, but that is impossible thanks to space constraints at Everton’s tiny home, and instead general admission tickets are provided.
To add fuel to the fires of intrigue, ahead of the final confrontation with Newcastle, in which Everton won 1-0 but midfielder Alan was sent off, match officials were told they had to leave the ground and head to the car park because they had not chosen. Even related lanes.
Sources said the group wasn’t entertaining at all, and wondered if it had a subconscious influence on decision-making.
UEFA officials and their South American counterparts in South America were stunned when tickets for the “final” between European champions Italy and Copa America Argentina at Wembley on June 1 sold out.
Expect to see more collaboration between the duo, who recently opened a joint office in London, with the winners of youth tournaments on each continent set to begin their next showdown. Insiders believe the match could attract 50,000 fans at a venue like Uruguay’s historic Centenario Stadium.
Allegations of technical licensing use in Netflix’s slick Drive to Survive campaign have led officials from producers Box to Box to request a meeting with F1 teams at the Australian Grand Prix.
But the wording of the memo sent to each team left some confused. It read: “Box to Box are eager to discuss the narrative potential of Season 5.” One official said: “The potential of the narrative – incredible.”
