Newcastle United Delivers InPost Partnership
Newcastle United has announced a partnership with InPost Group, Europe’s leading out of home delivery provider. The multi-year partnership sees InPost become 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 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.
InPost will 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.
“Like Newcastle United, InPost is on a rapid and remarkable UK and international growth trajectory, with a 60% increase in locker locations internationally during 2023, with the number of parcels delivered using InPost’s service seeing a 30% increase in their global markets.
“Similarly, during the 2022/23 Season, Newcastle United’s live audience reach grew over 48% in Europe and 44% in the UK, with our number of followers increasing at a rapid pace.
“We are excited to partner with InPost, providing an incredible platform to support their UK and European growth plans. We are delighted to welcome InPost to our family of partners.”
Rafał Brzoska, InPost Group founder and CEO, said: “This exciting partnership underlines our commitment to expand InPost’s presence in the UK and Europe and to provide our best-in class delivery solutions to a wider audience.
“Newcastle United’s growth over the last 18 months has been remarkable and we are excited to join forces with a club, and business, which matches our ambitious growth plans. Exceptional performance is something we both aspire to and this will be a key theme as we bring this partnership to life.”
