StubHub partners with MLB franchise Angels 

StubHub now has partnerships with 28 of the 30 Major League Baseball teams after linking up with Los Angeles Angels.

The multi-year agreement with the ticketing resale site will extend the league’s connection with Stubhub to 28 franchises.

“Our commitment to our fans is providing them with the best option to purchase verified secondary market tickets to Angels games,” said John Carpino, Angels’ president.  “StubHub provides our fans a best-in-class experience.”

The Angels and the New York Yankees opted out of MLB’s deal to renew StubHub’s role as the official secondary ticket market back in 2012, but the latter re-signed with the resale site in June 2016.

The Los Angeles baseball franchise will fully integrate its ticketing with the StubHub platform, with all Angels season ticket holders and single-game buyers able to resell their tickets through the site securely.

StubHub also provides pricing guidance for sellers and panoramic 360-degree virtual view-from seats for buyers.

“We are thrilled to officially reunite with the Angels and its fans and expand our MLB club partnerships under our agreement with MLBAM,” said StubHub general manager, Perkins Miller.

“With this partnership and integration, Angels fans will not only enjoy the most trusted fan protection in the industry, but also a ticketing experience rooted in ease and innovation that offers a superior mobile ticketing platform.”

All tickets will be digital versions that are available on both iOS and Android devices. Printed tickets can be resold on the platform, but they will be converted into mobile format, and fans will use their smartphone to enter the stadium.

The partnership will see marketing and sponsorship benefits for StubHub, including in-stadium signage, marketing assets and integration with Angels season seat holder accounts on, allowing season seat holders to post their Angels tickets for sale on StubHub with ease.
