Square has announced that its handheld payment terminal will be piloted at MLB's Nationals Park, allowing Washington Nationals fans to use contactless payment methods like Apple Pay and Google Pay to purchase popcorn, peanuts, beer, and other ballpark favorites directly from their seats.


Square has also partnered with food delivery service Caviar to offer a skip-the-line, order-ahead experience in the ballpark. Fans who open the Caviar app from their seats will be able to order their concessions in advance, including beer and wine, and receive an alert when their food is ready to be picked up.

The new ordering options are ready to go for Opening Day, with the Nationals kicking off a three-game series against the New York Mets at 1:05 p.m. local time.

Nice. I hope this convenience comes to all MLB parks, especially my favorite team the DBacks.

Given the outrageous markup on food and drink at Nationals Park (making Disney World prices seem reasonable), it's a good thing you'll be able to open a credit line right from your phone to use that Apple Pay with.

Just what I need .... so I don’t leave my seat while they choke again in the playoff.

One city, one team (Capitals).

What's the point of ordering from your seat and then still having to go pick it up? Don't they have roaming vendors anymore? Why not deliver it right to your seat? Payment is a small pain point, going to the concession stand is the main pain point.

Square didn’t partner with Caviar, they own Caviar.

Nothing says "baseball" like pork shank!

What ever happened to hot dogs?
I have a hard time believing that the pork shank is $12 at a baseball stadium. I think they left a zero off. The last time I had a hot dog and a Coke at an MLB park, I think it was $15.
