Can Amazon end the bottling of the Seahawks beer line at Lumen Field?

Seattle Seahawks fans at Lumen Field will soon be able to purchase beer, wine and snacks without queuing to check out, thanks to technology developed by Amazon.

The Seahawks and Lumen Field announced Thursday plans to open District Market, a new upper lobby store that will feature Amazon’s Just Walk Out technology, ahead of the regular season opener Sept. 12.

Using a network of cameras, sensors and software, the technology will track customers as they shop, keeping tabs on what they pick up, what they put down and what they bring home. their seat. The technology eliminates the need for a checkout counter and will automatically charge customers for snacks and beverages in their hand as they exit the store.

Customers can either insert a credit card into a kiosk at the front of the store or use Amazon One, a palm recognition system, to link their purchases to an existing card. District Market will be the first store in an NFL stadium to offer both Amazon One and Amazon’s Just Walk Out technology.

“We are continually looking for new ways to innovate and modernize our fan experience,” Zach Hensley, Seahawks vice president of operations and general manager of Lumen Field, said in a statement. “We’re proud to bring this technology to our fans so they can spend more time enjoying the game.”

The store will carry beer, wine, soda and soft drinks, as well as game-day snacks from “stadium community neighbors” in the international district of Chinatown, according to a press release. Fans purchasing alcohol will be required to present identification to a store attendant.

Amazon’s Just Walk Out technology is also available at stores in T-Mobile Park and Climate Pledge Arena, as well as many Amazon Go and Amazon Fresh stores in Seattle.

At Lumen Field, District Market will be in the Upper Concourse of Section 323.
