StubHub’s NCAA Partnerships Portfolio Expands to 38 Schools with new partnerships with Virginia, Indiana, Hawaii, Illinois, Baylor and Miami.
StubHub has renewed its partnership as the official secondary ticket market provider with four NCAA properties; Oregon State University, Texas Christian University, Wichita State and East Carolina University, all of which now provide integrated ticket barcoding through its partnership with Spectra Ticketing & Fan Engagement (formerly Paciolan). In addition to its renewals, StubHub adds six new NCAA properties with the University of Virginia, Indiana University, University of Hawaii, University of Illinois, Baylor University and University of Miami.
Along with multi-media, licensing and brand partners, IMG and Learfield Sports, as well as leading ticketing provider and partner Spectra Ticketing & Fan Engagement, StubHub continues to demonstrate its commitment to the collegiate market. Working closely with schools to provide the most compelling online solution for fans to buy and sell tickets from each other, the company has evolved into a major sponsor and partner in the collegiate space.
Since Spectra Ticketing & Fan Engagement and StubHub joined forces in 2010, StubHub has grown their collegiate partnership roster by tenfold.
“For over five years, StubHub and Spectra Ticketing & Fan Engagement have collaborated with collegiate athletic programs nationwide to offer a best-in-class ticketing solution, and we are thrilled to expand that offering to six additional universities, ” said Geoff Lester, StubHub’s head of partnerships and business development. “We take great pride in being able to now consider these leading universities our partners, and we are equally proud to extend our relationships with the Oregon State University, Texas Christian University, Wichita State and East Carolina University.”
The StubHub/Spectra Ticketing & Fan Engagement partnership enables barcode integration for ticket holders to seamlessly resell their tickets on StubHub. The industry-leading technology provides tickets that are digitally delivered to the buyer. In addition, fans have access to print-at-home tickets, streamlined listings to sell unused tickets and mobile fulfillment via Apple Passbook.
“We are excited to see the continued growth of our partnership with StubHub, which provides an easy to use, fan friendly and integrated secondary ticketing solution for college athletics,” said Dave Butler, president and CEO Spectra Ticketing & Fan Engagement. “The seamless integration provides fans with an easy way to access and purchase tickets for their favorite NCAA team.”
