StubHub and Xolos de Tijuana partner for the first official ticket marketplace in Mexican futbol

This news was previously released in Mexico.

México, Jan. 4, 2017 – Just after the first games of the Clausura 2017 tournament, global ticket marketplace  StubHub (eBay Inc) has announced a new partnership with the Mexico-based futbol club, Xolos de Tijuana, to create the first official ticket marketplace for Xolos tickets. With this agreement, StubHub.com.mx becomes the official site for local and international consumers to resell and buy tickets to Xolos home games. This is the first time that a Mexico-based futbol club has selected an official ticket marketplace.

This partnership is a natural fit for StubHub and Xolos, as both brands emphasize innovative approaches that connect people through inspiring event experiences:

“StubHub is committed to connecting people to inspiring live experiences, and by partnering with Xolos, we are giving more people access to an incredible team,” said Miguel Medina, head of business development for StubHub in Mexico. “Xolos wants to enable the buying and selling of tickets in a secure way that makes it possible for even more people to experience a live match at the Estadio Caliente, and StubHub’s global presence expands Xolos’ influence to consumers in nearly 50 countries around the world.”

Beginning with the Clausura 2017, Xolos season pass holders can list their full passes, or tickets for individual games, on StubHub.com.mx. When season pass holders list an individual game, StubHub.com.mx will generate an electronic ticket for the buyer to get into the specific game, and will cancel the eligibility of the season pass for that specific game. In order to get into the stadium, the buyer needs to print the e-ticket and bring hard copies. Consumers can be confident that they’ll be able to enter the individual game without issue.

Club Tijuana Xoloitzcuintles de Caliente, with the firm conviction to provide a better service to their followers, avoiding limitations in the sale of season and individual tickets to attend games in the Estadio Caliente, took the decision of establishing one of the most important partnerships that aims to expand and increase the number of followers in and out of Mexico,” said Esteban de Anda, Director de Alianzas Comerciales y Comunicación del Club Tijuana. “One of the main goals, and probably the most important one, is to provide a full service based on the availability of platforms to serve both the primary and the secondary ticket markets, where our fans will find a unique, easy and fast service to buy their season or individual tickets. No matter where they are, our followers will always find more options to find tickets for our games. Although there is still a ticket box available in the field, fans can now buy their tickets from their computer, tablet or smartphone using both credit and debit card and the purchase can be made in and out of the country,” continued de Anda.

 

StubHub, an eBay-owned Company, entered into the partnership with Xolos to show its commitment to Mexico and its ability to give consumer there even more choice and access to the events they want to attend. In August 2016, StubHub acquired Ticketbis, a Spain-based ticket marketplace that had been in Mexico since 2012. StubHub and Ticketbis are integrating their platforms in a phased approach, and the agreement with Xolos represents one of the first platform integrations, with tickets available on StubHub.com.mx.

 

StubHub Launches In Mexico

StubHub has launched the first phase of a Spanish-language site in Mexico. The launch of StubHub.mx expands parent company eBay’s presence in Mexico, following the launch of eBay.com in 2014 and the acquisition of Vivanuncios in 2015.

StubHub previously was available in the U.S. and Canada with StubHub.com, in the UK with StubHub.co.uk, and in Germany with StubHub.de. In Mexico, the launch of StubHub.mx will be in time for consumers in Mexico to browse and buy tickets to COPA América Centenario, which for the first time will be held outside Latin America.

“Live events and experiences enrich our lives and give us incredible memories to share, and StubHub plans to connect fans in Mexico with one of this year’s most exciting sporting events, the COPA América Centenario,” said Estanis Martín de Nicolás, Head of International for StubHub. “Over the coming months, we will continue to build more features and add more events for StubHub.mx to bring consumers in Mexico a new, trusted way to connect with the athletes, artists and performers they want to experience.”

The first phase for StubHub.mx will include ticket inventory for the COPA América Centenario tournament only. Subsequent updates will expand the amount of local and international event inventory available on StubHub.mx, and will also add selling capabilities to the platform.

Buyers will have their choice of ticket delivery via UPS, or in-person pick-up at event stadiums in the U.S. Buyers can pay via traditional credit cards like Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover, as well as PayPal, which allows a wide variety of funding sources, including debit cards from Bancomer, Banamex, Banorte, Banco Azteca, HSBC, Inbursa and Santander. All purchases on StubHub.mx are backed by the StubHub Fan Rewards Guarantee.

The upcoming launch of StubHub.mx follows the company’s recently announced new global brand identity, designed to give the StubHub brand a more contemporary look and feel, and expand its appeal with audiences outside its core markets. The new brand identity includes a new logo and tagline, a new color palette and new iconography and imagery.
