The Toronto Blue Jays and StubHub today announced an agreement that designates StubHub as the official fan-to-fan marketplace of the club. Under the one-year agreement, StubHub will offer Blue Jays fans a fully integrated ticketing solution that will enable all Blue Jays Season Ticket Members, Game Pack holders and single-game ticket buyers to re-sell, purchase and electronically transmit tickets conveniently, safely and securely on the StubHub platform.
“We want to provide a safe and convenient platform for Blue Jays fans to experience watching their favourite team live in-stadium. This partnership does just that,” said Justin Hay, Vice President, Ticket Sales & Operations, Toronto Blue Jays. “StubHub’s secure and user-friendly digital platform will allow our fans to buy or sell tickets on the secondary ticket market using full integration into our ticketing system.”
“This is a huge step forward expanding our MLB club partnerships by teaming up with Canada’s Team, the Toronto Blue Jays,” said StubHub General Manager, Canada, Jeff Poirier. “With this partnership and integration, Blue Jays fans will enjoy our trusted marketplace backed by our industry leading Fan Protect™ Guarantee as well as a ticket experience rooted in ease and innovation that offers a superior mobile ticketing platform.”
In addition to the ticketing integration, StubHub’s industry-leading technology also provides tools for customers, including pricing guidance for sellers, best value recommendation and panoramic 360-degree virtual view-from-seats for buyers. All Blue Jays tickets will be available on mobile, for both iOS and Android devices, or as print-at-home tickets. Customers can post hard stock tickets for sale; upon being sold, those tickets will be converted to mobile format, and fans will use their smartphones for entry into the stadium.
Through its partnership with the Toronto Blue Jays, StubHub will receive marketing and sponsorship benefits, including stadium signage, hospitality assets and integration with Blue Jays Season Ticket Member accounts on mlb.com/bluejays, allowing Season Ticket Members to post their Blue Jays tickets for sale on StubHub with ease.
