SAN FRANCISCO and NEW YORK, Sept. 17, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The New York Yankees today announced that Postmates, the leader in enabling anyone to get nearly anything on-demand, will serve as their exclusive On-Demand Delivery and Pickup Partner and will integrate Postmates' recently-launched Postmates Live offering into concession stands at Yankee Stadium. By using Postmates Live, fans will be able to place their stadium concessions order from their seats and pick it up when ready at designated Postmates Pickup locations, with no added fees or time spent in line.
Postmates launched the first stadium version of Postmates Live at Dodger Stadium in August. Earlier this year, Postmates announced a partnership with AEG that has made the company's skip-the-line service, now called Postmates Live, a staple at AEG's largest festivals such as Coachella and Stagecoach, among others.
In cooperation with Legends, Postmates Live will launch at Yankee Stadium beginning September 17, allowing fans to order their favorite food and drinks from their seats and pickup their items at designated Postmates Pickup points in Sections 113 and 116 for the remainder of the season. The roll-out of the service to additional Yankee Stadium stands will be completed for the 2020 season.
"We couldn't be more excited to expand the Postmates Live offering to New York," said Bastian Lehmann, co-founder and CEO, Postmates. "The historic moments created at Yankee Stadium makes it one of the most well-known venues in the country and we look forward to providing Yankees fans with an easier and faster way to get their favorite food and drinks on-demand!"
"Yankee Stadium strives to provide an unparalleled game day experience for every fan," said Marty Greenspun, Yankees Senior Vice President of Strategic Ventures. "Our partnership with Postmates will allow Yankee Stadium Guests the convenience of selecting, ordering and paying for their food in advance of arriving at concession stands, maximizing the amount of time Guests can spend at their seats enjoying the action on the field. We are excited to provide this option in select Stadium locations immediately and have already begun making preparations to provide additional pickup locations throughout the Stadium in 2020."
To order within Yankee Stadium, fans just need to open the Postmates app on their mobile devices and:
- Browse and select desired offerings
- Place an order and pay in the app
- Once orders are placed, fans will receive a pickup time and text notification when the order is ready
- Orders will be available at designated Postmates Pickup points located at Sections 113 and 116 for the remainder of the 2019 season before an expansive stadium roll out in 2020.
