Have you ever missed a home run while you waited at a baseball stadium concession stand for food and drinks? Now, the New York Yankees have partnered with Postmates Live to enable fans to order snacks and beverages from their seats and pick them up at designated locations when they are ready—without missing the action on the field. There are no added fees.
Postmates launched the first stadium version of Postmates Live at Dodger Stadium in August, according to a joint press release from the organizations.
In cooperation with Legends, Postmates Live will launch at Yankee Stadium beginning September 17 in a limited seating area—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 make 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 SVP 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;

- Receive a pickup time and text notification when the order is ready;
To celebrate the partnership, Postmates is offering everyone using Postmates Live at Yankee Stadium a $5 credit which can be redeemed by entering the promo code, “YANKEES”.
