StubHub has linked up with the NFL Players Association for the second year in a row to support career growth after competition.
The 2019 NFLPA Externship program pairs 63 athletes with 24 organisations, including StubHub, that best fit participants’ interests and career development goals.
Scott Jablonski, StubHub’s general manager of NFL, NBA & NHL said: “We are excited to continue our partnership with the NFLPA for a second year. We were so impressed with our Externs and Fellow from the first year that we jumped at the chance to participate again.
“These players are driven individuals and we’re lucky to have them at StubHub. We always love new perspectives and appreciate the opportunity to learn from some of the best and brightest in the NFL.”
Josiah Price of the Minnesota Vikings, Thomas Hennessy of the New York Jets, Ryan Malleck, a free agent who most recently played for the Pittsburgh Steelers and Kapron Lewis-Moore, one of the newest players to sign with the San Francisco 49ers will participate in a three-week immersive business experience program at StubHub’s headquarters in San Francisco.
Players will also travel to StubHub’s global customer service centre in Salt Lake City and work with StubHub customers at a Lakers vs. Clippers NBA game in Los Angeles.
NFLPA player affairs manager, Connor Ford, said: “The experience provided by StubHub in the first year of our partnership served as a great fit for our externs and fellows in learning more about the ticketing industry.
“We are thrilled that this year’s externs will once again have the opportunity to work with StubHub in gaining valuable, hands-on experience.”
