As you may have heard, our parent company, eBay, just announced a groundbreaking partnership with entertainment company AEG, designed to enhance the fan experience. As an eBay company, StubHub is leading the way with AEG integrations and we couldn’t be more excited!
First, we will become the exclusive secondary ticketing partner for AEG’s ticketing solution, AXS.com, featuring our barcode cancel/re-issue solution for seamless transfer of tickets between buyers and sellers. We’re also becoming the Official Fan to Fan Ticket Marketplace for more than 30 AEG facilities worldwide.
We’ve also got great news for fans in Los Angeles. We’ve secured our first MLS partnership as the Official Fan to Fan Ticket Marketplace of the LA Galaxy starting in the 2013 MLS season, and we’ll become the Official Fan to Fan Ticket Marketplace of the 2012 Stanley Cup Champion LA Kings starting with the 2013-14 NHL season. Plus, early next year we’ll become one of 12 Founding Partners for LA Live/Staples Center, giving StubHub Rewards members an opportunity to experience the Staples Center in a whole new way – with seat upgrades, behind-the-scenes tours, Hyde access and Lexus Club access.
What does all of this mean for our fans? More choices when it comes to attending events at AEG venues and with our newest team partners. This will all start rolling out early next year, but it’s just the beginning. Stay tuned because we expect over time the eBay and AEG partnership will provide more opportunities for StubHub to make the event experience even better for fans.
