Newcastle United delivers out of the box partnership with leading locker and e-commerce delivery provider, InPost
Newcastle United is excited to announce a unique commercial partnership with InPost Group, Europe's leading out-of-home delivery provider.
The multi-year partnership sees InPost becoming the club's Official Parcel Collection and Delivery Service Partner.
As part of the agreement, InPost will install bespoke Newcastle United parcel lockers outside of the iconic St. James' Park - the first of its kind at a Premier League stadium.
The 'Geordie lockers', which will be designed in the famous black and white of Newcastle United, will add to the 6,000 lockers InPost already has in the United Kingdom, offering Newcastle United fans the opportunity to benefit from fast, secure and convenient delivery and returns options outside their beloved St. James' Park.
The lockers will be positioned outside the Gallowgate End and on Barrack Road, offering customers a city centre location, with InPost also having a number of collection points around Newcastle and wider Tyneside area.
InPost will also have a digital presence across the club's growing digital channels and within St. James' Park, highlighting the company's out-of-home delivery service which has more than 60,000 collection points throughout Europe.
Speaking on the new partnership, Newcastle United's Chief Commercial Officer, Peter Silverstone, said: "This first of its kind Premier League partnership clearly shows a shared commitment from InPost and Newcastle United to be innovative and creative, whilst putting our fans at the heart of activity.
"Our loyal supporters, and the residents of Newcastle, will benefit from convenient, cheaper, and more environmentally friendly deliveries right on the doorstep of their beloved St. James' Park.
"Like Newcastle United, InPost is on a rapid and remarkable UK and international growth trajectory, with a 60 per cent increase in locker locations internationally during 2023, with the number of parcels delivered using InPost's service seeing a 30 per cent increase in their global markets.
