Postmates is coming to Yankee Stadium concession stands, as the home of the New York Yankees joins Dodger Stadium as MLB venues offering on-demand ordering and pickup as a way for fans to skip the queues.
There are an abundance of on-demand food-ordering and delivery services, and it seems like every concessions giant–Aramark, Delaware North–has experimented with on-demand seat service. And the Yankees, in conjunction with concessionaire Legends, is implementing the new Postmates Live service at Yankee Stadium. Postmates is the #1 delivery service in Los Angeles (hence the Dodgers connection), according to the firm. With Postmates Live, fans will be able to place their ballpark 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 ballpark 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 today, allowing fans to order their favorite food and drinks from their seats and pick up 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.
“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 at select Stadium locations immediately and have already begun making preparations to provide additional pickup locations throughout the Stadium in 2020.”
“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.”
To order within Yankee Stadium, fans just need to open the Postmates app on their mobile devices and:
- Browse and select desired offerings

- Once orders are placed, fans will receive a pickup time and text notification when the order is ready
