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.

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.

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.

Ottawa Senators Extend Partnership with StubHub to Include Ticket Barcode Integration

senators

StubHub joins Capital Tickets as the sole authenticated partners of the Senators that can guarantee fans access into games.

The Ottawa Senators (@Senators) announced today plans to employ new technology to authenticate tickets resold through their long-time partner, StubHub, the world’s largest ticket marketplace. In collaboration with Spectra Ticketing & Fan Engagement (formerly Paciolan), the Senators become the first Canadian sports franchise to employ a ticket barcode integration system with StubHub.

This ticketing integration will enable Senators ticket holders to seamlessly resell their tickets on StubHub, while offering buyers added security as new barcodes are reissued to the buyer once the ticket is purchased. This industry-leading technology provides tickets that are digitally delivered to the buyer and provides options for print-at-home and mobile phone fulfillment. StubHub becomes the sole authenticated partner of the Senators that can guarantee fans access into games.

“With the digital ticket marketplace always evolving, this partnership is extremely important to our business and more importantly our fans,” said Peter O’Leary, Ottawa Senators chief marketing officer and vice-president of ticketing. “StubHub’s integration feature gives us the ability to authenticate tickets in real-time helping us in a variety of ways, including alleviating fraudulent reselling. We can now add StubHub alongside Capital Tickets as the only authorized ticket vendors for Ottawa Senators games.”

“In addition to authentication, this agreement, along with our Ticket Trade and charitable donation programs, allows our fans the opportunity to sell tickets from their season-seat packages on the open market for the games they are not able to attend. We feel this will address a longstanding challenge for fans who wish to experience the benefits of season-seat membership, but are not able to attend all 41 home games.”

The partnership between the Senators and StubHub began during the 2012-13 National Hockey League season and represented StubHub’s first official marketing sponsorship with a Canadian sports team. This agreement continues to include the designation of StubHub as the Senators’ official fan-to-fan ticket marketplace and StubHub branding visible at all Senators home games at Canadian Tire Centre as well as across the club’s web and social marketing channels. StubHub will also run in-game promotions that can include ticket upgrades, and “can’t-buy” experiences such as watching pre-game warm-ups from the penalty box.

“At StubHub, we strive to offer fans a superior event-going experience, allowing them to buy and sell tickets easily on the world’s largest ticket marketplace,” said Geoff Lester, StubHub’s head of partnerships and business development. “As such, we are excited to expand our relationship with the Senators and Spectra to include our ticketing integration.”

“We are thrilled to continue to enhance our partnership with the Ottawa Senators and provide their fans with access to the largest marketplace to buy and sell tickets,” said Dave Butler, President and CEO of Spectra Ticketing & Fan Engagement. “Our partnership integration with StubHub provides access to great seats to Senators games at Canadian Tire Centre through an easy-to-use, fan-friendly platform.”

What is Ticket Authentication?

When tickets are authenticated, it means that the Ottawa Senators have verified that the tickets are valid for the hockey game, concert or event. Outside of the Senators’-owned Capital Tickets and StubHub, no other ticket reseller can make this claim. Some ticketing websites may “guarantee” the tickets, but that does not mean the actual ticket has been validated. It does mean the buyer is intended to receive a refund if the ticket is not valid. Capital Tickets and the Ottawa Senators along with our partner Stub Hub are the only ticket sellers able to guarantee you access to an event, removing any risk of purchasing online.
