SAN FRANCISCO and LOS ANGELES, Aug. 7, 2019 /Kiewire/ — The Los Angeles Dodgers today named Postmates, the leader in enabling anyone to have anything on-demand, as their exclusive On-Demand Delivery and Pickup Partner, and announced that they will incorporate Postmates Live into the concession stands at Dodger Stadium. With Postmates Live, fans will be able to place their Dodger Stadium concessions order from their seats and pick it up when ready at designated Postmates Pickup locations, with no added fees.
Postmates Live, in coordination with Levy and its team members, will be available for fans to order concessions from stands in the “Top Deck” section of the park for the duration of the season. It will roll out to the entire stadium for the 2020 season. In addition to the engaging fan activations at concessions, Postmates branding will also be visible at Dodger Stadium throughout the multi-year partnership.
“The LA Dodgers are an iconic part of LA culture and so is Postmates. Having the opportunity to bring our mission to enable anyone to have anything on-demand to Dodger Stadium is extremely exciting for us,” said Bastian Lehmann, co-founder, and CEO at Postmates. “My co-founder Sean grew up in LA so this is a partnership that really hits home for us at Postmates. Go Dodgers!”
“At Dodger Stadium, we’re always looking for ways to enhance the gameday experience,” said Michael Wandell, Dodger Senior Vice President of Global Partnerships. “In partnership with Postmates, we have co-authored the most dynamic and innovative mobile ordering platform in professional sports.”
To order within Dodger Stadium, fans just need to open the Postmates app on their mobile devices and:
- Browse and select desired offerings.
- Place an order, 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 throughout the stadium (initially only at Top Deck before full-stadium roll out in 2020).
Earlier this year, Postmates launched a skip-the-line service, now called Postmates Live, with AEG and has been a staple for their largest festivals such as Coachella, Stagecoach, etc.
