StubHub y el Club América se unen para que sea más fácil conseguir boletos para los juegos del equipo azulcrema en casa

Como Partner Oficial del Club América, en la plataforma web StubHub.com.mx los Abonados Azulcremas podrán rentar sus abonos cuando no puedan ir al estadio, permitiendo que otros usuarios los puedan utilizar.

 

México, 19 de julio de 2017 StubHub y el Club América firman hoy una alianza que convierte a esta plataforma especializada en boletos, propiedad del grupo eBay, en Partner Oficial del equipo de futbol mexicano para la renta de abonos en exclusiva. El objetivo de este acuerdo es facilitar a todos los fans, tanto dentro como fuera de México, el acceso a la experiencia de ver jugar en vivo al Club en casa. Además, StubHub también se convierte en Global Ticket Partner para la venta de boletos en los juegos del equipo fuera del país.

 

StubHub.com.mx pone su plataforma al servicio de todos los Abonados Azulcrema del Club América para que puedan rentar su abono cuando, por cualquier motivo, no pueden asistir al partido. Así, un usuario que no tiene el abono de temporada y quiere presenciar el partido puede rentar el abono para un juego individual y disfrutar en vivo de uno de los estadios más emblemáticos del mundo. Desde ahora, los seguidores del Club América tienen una oportunidad más para apoyar a su equipo.

 

Como Partner Oficial del Club América, StubHub se convierte en el aliado tecnológico perfecto para flexibilizar la renta de abonos:

 

Este acuerdo refuerza el posicionamiento del modelo de negocio que propone StubHub, el cual ha revolucionado el consumo de eventos en México y en el mundo. El Club América se preocupa por brindarle servicios de calidad e innovadores a sus aficionados y esta alianza permitirá que se beneficien muchos abonados y seguidores del club a nivel mundial”, explica Rafael Ortiz, Director de Desarrollo de Negocio y Partnerships. “Este acuerdo supone un inmenso paso adelante para el Club América. Cuando una entidad de su nivel hace una apuesta tan clara por la innovación simplemente marca la pauta y cambia las reglas del juego para todos”, comenta Ortiz.

 

A través de esta alianza con StubHub oficializamos la renta de abonos del Club América y este sistema va a tener un beneficio directo tanto para nuestros abonados, que pueden optimizar su abono, como para el conjunto de seguidores del equipo. Nos llena de satisfacción poder ofrecer a nuestros aficionados este servicio revolucionario y que va a estar activo desde la primera jornada del Torneo Apertura 2017. Además, las posibilidades tecnológicas y de impacto internacional que ofrece StubHub ayudarán al Club América a expandir todavía más su popularidad en todo el mundo”, sentencia Mauricio Culebro, Presidente Operativo del Club América.

 

Gracias a la presencia internacional de StubHub, aficionados de todo el mundo podrán beneficiarse de este acuerdo. En la actualidad, StubHub tiene operaciones en 48 países a través de los cuales ofrece acceso al mayor catálogo de eventos en todo el mundo, pero con servicio local, métodos de pago comunes en el país y servicio de atención al cliente adaptados a cada mercado. La doble vertiente de este acuerdo, local e internacional, evidencia la importancia de la apuesta de ambas entidades por facilitar y garantizar el acceso del mayor número de aficionados la experiencia de ver jugar en directo al Club América en casa.

 

De hecho, esta nueva alianza también convierte a StubHub en Global Ticket Partner para la venta de boletos en los partidos que el Club América juegue fuera del país. En el año 2016 el equipo disputó hasta 10 encuentros más allá de las fronteras de México.

 

Cabe destacar que StubHub pone al servicio de todos sus usuarios el servicio de garantía llamado Fan Protect por el que todas las transacciones de la plataforma quedan convenientemente garantizadas. En la extraña circunstancia de que surjan inconvenientes, StubHub asegurará entradas de sustitución de igual o mejor condición o procederá al reembolso del dinero pagado por el usuario.

“Through this alliance with StubHub, we officially make the Club América season tickets available to be listed in StubHub.com and this system will have a direct benefit for our subscribers, who can optimize their season tickets, as well as for the team’s followers. We are pleased to offer our fans this revolutionary service and will be active from the opening day of the Apertura 2017 Tournament. In addition, the technological and international impact that StubHub offers will help Club America to further expand its popularity all over the world, “said Mauricio Culebro, Operating President of Club America.

In 2016 the team played 10 games outside Mexico.

STUBHUB PARTNER WITH NORTHAMPTON SAINTS TO TAKE TICKETING INTO A NEW ERA

Northampton Saints has announced a new partnership with StubHub, which will see the club introduce a new ticketing platform for the 2017/18 season.

Unlike the previous Elite Sponsorship agreement between the club and company, this new partnership sees StubHub become the Saints’ official ticketing partner, and be the outlet for all tickets, whether for the season or individual matches.

Saints and StubHub will be utilising an integration with the Event Ticketing software from SAP – one of the world’s largest software companies – to offer supporters some brand new and unique features, including ticket transferability and the ability to log into online accounts through Facebook.

In response to considerable amounts of feedback and comments during the past year, Season Ticket Holders will once again be able to re-sell their seats or terrace spots for games they cannot attend through StubHub, setting their own price and managing their own account. This facility will also be offered for all supporters for the first time, too, meaning that if – for whatever reason – a supporter cannot attend a match they will be able to re-sell the ticket.

Match tickets for individual game purchasers will be available as downloadable pdfs, on smartphones to scan at the turnstiles, or as traditional paper versions, with purchasers of re-sold tickets also able to receive their ticket via email for the first time, too.

As part of the partnership StubHub branding will appear on all backroom playing staff computers on match days.

“We’re very excited to be partnering up with StubHub once again,” said Saints commercial director Brian Facer. “Comments from our supporters had been that our ticketing website needed to provide a smooth process for booking match tickets and Season Tickets, so we conducted an extensive review of every type of software available on the market.

“The SAP Event Ticketing software used by StubHub is second to none and will give us the flexibility to be fully responsive to all our supporters, whether they have been at Franklin’s Gardens for years as a Season Ticket Holder or are coming to us for the first time.

“StubHub will also give us the ability to reach a larger audience, something which is crucial as we look to expand as a club in the future, turning more people into Saints supporters and underpinning the investment into the playing effort.”

Nick Harford, StubHub UK’s head of business development and partnerships, international, is delighted to be working once again with the Saints.

“We are delighted to partner with Northampton Saints once again, and this time on a broader level where we will provide a new overall ticketing platform, utilising StubHub’s integration with SAP’s Event Ticketing software,” he said. “We look forward to developing our long-term partnership.” 

The club will be transitioning to the new ticketing platform over the coming months, with more information about managing online accounts being sent out to Season Ticket Holders ahead of the 2017/18 season.
