The new World Boxing Super Series has signed StubHub as its official ticketing partner and marketplace for the 2017 competition.
Under the agreement, StubHub will list tickets for the tournament at face value, as well as providing a platform for fans to buy and sell their own tickets.
Tickets for a minimum of six European matches will be sold through StubHub, starting with the fight between WBO World Champion Oleksander Uysk and Marco Huck at the Max-Schmeling-Halle in Berlin, Germany, on September 9.
The ticketing firm will also benefit from a broad range of branding, digital, social and activation rights throughout the World Boxing Super Series, which kicks off in September.
“This agreement provides all boxing fans with a clear destination for purchasing tickets to the European fights of The Greatest Prize in Boxing.” said Roger Lodewick, Comosa’s chief commercial officer.
“We look forward to working together with StubHub and leveraging their scale and expertise as one of the industry leaders in ticketing, and particularly in the sport of boxing. Together we will ensure that we will continuously provide fans the opportunity to see the best fight the best in The Greatest arenas around the world.”
Ander Michelena, international general manager of StubHub, said: “We’re thrilled to be partnering with the new World Boxing Super Series to further promote and support boxing across Europe.”
Other match-ups during the competition include Callum Smith against Erik Skoglund at the Echo Arena Liverpool on September 16, and WBA World Champion George Groves against Jamie Cox at the SSE Wembley Arena on October 14. Two finals will close out the series in May 2018.
