By iSportconnect | February 21, 2013

Premiership rugby team Leicester Tigers have signed an agreement with StubHub to become the club’s official ticket exchange.

StubHub, a part of the eBay Inc. family, is the world’s largest secondary ticketing marketplace and the deal will run through to the end of the 2015-16 season.

The deal will also give StubHub pitch-side marketing, a presence on the club website and other marketing channels such as social media and CRM channels.

Nick Harford, Director of Partnerships, International for StubHub said: “We are delighted to be partnering with Leicester Tigers and look forward to working together to offer fans access to some of the most exciting games in Aviva Premiership and Heineken Cup rugby.

“As with all our partnerships we aim to offer fans a best in class service where they can buy and sell tickets safely and securely and help support their club by keeping the stadium full.”

Simon Cohen, CEO of Leicester Tigers, added: “We’re very aware that missing matches is a key issue for our season ticket holders, and this partnership will allow them to recognise great value by offering their seat for sale for matches they are unable to attend.

“StubHub’s superior technological platform, its relentless focus on the fan and its track record for quality customer service made it the obvious choice for us.

“Our fans are at the heart of everything we do as a club and we know that StubHub will take good care of them.”
