  • What happens when a team doesn't work with StubHub anymore?

    It used to be that all MLB teams had relationships with StubHub whereby you could buy that team's tickets from that site. But a few teams, such as the Yankees, cut off that relationship. Does that mean that it is impossible to buy Yankee tickets from StubHub at all? If not, what does it mean?
    It is by caffeine alone I set my mind in motion. It is by the beans of Java that thoughts acquire speed, the hands acquire shakes, the shakes become a warning. It is by caffeine alone I set my mind in motion.

    I think, I could look it up but I'm lazy, that the Yankees will continue to work with stubhub.


    I think they changed their agreement though, so that there is a minimum that Yankee tickets must sell for.

      All the Googling I just did, says that the Yankees no longer have a relationship of any kind with StubHub. Neither do the Cubs or the Angels.

      StubHub customer service just emailed me and they said that it will still be possible to buy Yankee tickets from them. And it'll still be covered by the fan guarantee. You'll have to wait for FedEx to deliver them (no electronic download) but the tickets will still be available.

        Damn. That prevents us from waiting until day of game to get good deals on tickets($200 for legend seats...).

        So how does this protect the fans Mr. Levine? Or do you only mean protect your rich fans from having to sell their legend seats at bargain basement prices in order to get any money out of those tickets....

          Don't forget Lonn Trost. They are so out of touch with the fans.

            Maybe that's what they mean by "wealth management"...

              Actually I can understand where the team's coming from on this. They're upset that their season tickets are being sold for pennies on the dollar. I would be too.

                Holders can't expect to sell their tickets when the tickets are expensive to begin with. Especially when it comes to the legend seats. I have seen legend seats sellers asking for $1500 for their tickets in a section where it is only $800 from the Yankees. I don't mind sellers making a bit of a profit, but $700 per ticket? That's a bit much.... This wasn't even a Red Sox game or any other must see game. Legend seats are expensive to begin with. If they were cheaper during the sale duration besides waiting until day of game to get something out of their tickets, then they probably would see a bit better. Generally, when you go to sell tickets, you don't expect to make a profit. You hope to just break even and have to expect a loss unless it is something that is in demand. A game against the Astro's won't be able to get fans to overpay for the tickets.....
