T-Mobile Arena, Las Vegas’ newest sports and entertainment venue, named StubHub, the world’s largest ticket marketplace, and AXS, a leading ticketing and digital media platform, as its official secondary ticketing partners.
The strategic agreement, negotiated by AEG Global Partnerships, also designates both StubHub and AXS as T-Mobile Arena as Official Founding Partners of T-Mobile Arena. As part of the deal, both sites will be open and integrated, providing consumers with the ability to seamlessly list and purchase tickets with greater ease and security, across both platforms, for each and every transaction.
“We are excited to once again partner with StubHub and merge the industry’s most innovative, convenient and secure digital ticket format, Flash Seats from AXS, with the leading marketplace for tickets, StubHub,” said Bryan Perez, president and CEO of AXS. “Through this partnership, T-Mobile Arena is leading the way in fan convenience, flexibility and security.”
With this new partnership, customers will have the ability to link to their StubHub and AXS accounts, seamlessly access their available tickets, post them for resale, purchase authenticated tickets and scan into events at T-Mobile Arena, from the StubHub or AXS Flash Seats Mobile apps for iOS or Android.
Perkins Miller, general manager, North America, at StubHub, said, “Las Vegas is a premier destination for live events, and by joining forces with AEG, AXS and T-Mobile Arena, StubHub is delivering on our vision to connect people around the world with the thrill of live events. As an official resale partner, StubHub will offer event-goers a simple, reliable experience, integrated directly with T-Mobile Arena, to find great seats to the best performances in the city.”
Las Vegas is a city known worldwide for its live entertainment and T-Mobile Arena is Las Vegas’ newest home to the biggest names in sports and entertainment. The multi-purpose arena, a joint venture with AEG and MGM Resorts International, opened in April 2016 and in its first year hosted more than 75 live events.
Nick Baker, senior vice president, AEG Global Partnerships, said, “We are thankful and appreciative to continue to grow our long-standing global relationship with StubHub. This is a true collaboration of technological innovation and large market reach between AXS and StubHub that will streamline the ticketing process for fans, providing an end-to-end enhanced consumer experience.”
In addition to the ticketing integration, StubHub and AXS will receive a portfolio of sponsorship and marketing assets in the venue, including a presenting sponsorship entitlement for StubHub to the T-Mobile Arena Box Office, plus social and digital collaborations.
