On-demand delivery service Postmates has followed up its recent partnership with the Los Angeles Dodgers by teaming up with fellow Major League Baseball franchise the New York Yankees.
Postmates becomes the exclusive on-demand delivery and pickup partner of the Yankees and will integrate its recently-launched Postmates Live offering into concession stands at Yankee Stadium.
As part of the agreement, fans will be able to place their order from their seats and pick it up when it is ready at designated Postmates Pickup locations. Orders will not come with an added fee and the technology will help eliminate queueing at Yankee Stadium.
Postmates Live will launch at Yankee Stadium today (Tuesday), with designated pickup points to be set up in Sections 113 and 116. The roll-out to additional stands will be completed in time for the 2020 MLB season.
Postmates will offer everyone who uses Postmates Live at Yankee Stadium a $5 credit which can be redeemed by entering the promo code ‘YANKEES’.
“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!”
Marty Greenspun, the Yankees’ senior vice-president of strategic ventures, added: “Yankee Stadium strives to provide an unparalleled game-day experience for every fan.
“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, maximising 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.”
Postmates partnered with the Dodgers last month in a multi-year deal that will bring in-seat concession ordering at Dodger Stadium. Postmates will serve as the Dodgers’ on-demand delivery and pickup partner.
Earlier in the year, Postmates partnered with sports and entertainment giant AEG to make Postmates Live a staple at festivals such as Coachella and Stagecoach.
