Dodgers extend long-running partnership with Levy

Major League Baseball franchise the Los Angeles Dodgers has signed a long-term extension to its partnership with hospitality company Levy.

The two parties first teamed up in 2000 and Levy will continue to deliver a range of services at Dodger Stadium as part of the extended agreement.

Levy’s team of culinary, technology, analytics and design experts will continue to work with the Dodgers to provide a first-class fan experience at Dodger Stadium.

Having initially partnered with Dodger Stadium in 2000, Levy’s partnership expanded in 2005 to cover full stadium food and beverages, including general concessions.

Dodgers president and chief executive Stan Kasten said: “Working with Levy over the past 17 years, we’ve built on our legacy and firmly established Dodger Stadium as one of the finest fan experience venues in all of professional sports. Levy’s unique experience elevating the country’s iconic venues and events makes them an ideal partner as we look to the future and raise the bar together in providing our fans with the finest experience and choices at Dodger Stadium.”

Over the past six years, the Dodgers have renovated or added new food and beverage concepts to every seating level, with signature locations having been created on the Top Deck and Reserve Level. Additions include the Bullpen Bars, King’s Hawaiian Grill and Tommy Lasorda’s Trattoria. Premium areas such as the dugout club and baseline seats have also been renovated.

Andy Lansing, president and chief executive of Levy, added: “Through the years we’ve worked hand in hand with the Dodgers to create a hospitality experience that reflects the passion of Dodger fans, the signature flavours of Southern California and the beauty and atmosphere of Dodger Stadium.

“The extended partnership will bring more design, technology, and analytics resources to the table, along with our already robust culinary team, to give our guests an incredible experience at one of the world’s premier ballparks.”
