StubHub will become Yankees’ official ticket re-seller
The Yankees have agreed to a “landmark deal” with StubHub that will make it the team’s official ticket re-seller, the team announced on Monday.
The deal will begin on July 15 and unseat Ticketmaster as the team’s re-seller.
Before the start of the season, the Yankees released a new ticket policy that banned print-at-home tickets, meaning fans could not purchase tickets from sites like StubHub hours before games. They would instead have to have tickets mailed to them, or given to them in person.
Fans still won’t be able to print tickets at home, though they will be able to bring their phone to the ballpark and present tickets that way.
Team president Randy Levine said that the deal will include a price floor for tickets on StubHub—they will be 50% less than the one-year season-ticket price.
