Stubhub and MLB

Stubhub and Major Leage Baseball will join forces.  Stubhub is going to be baseball’s official online ticket reseller starting next season.  Franchises will continue to use such companies as Ticketmaster to sell tickets online.  However only Stubhub will be allowed to operate an online ticket resale window on any MLB-operated website.

League officials don’t believe that the Stubhub deal would violate terms of baseball’s existing arrangement with Ticketmaster.  Earlier this month, Ticketmaster sued the Cleveland Cavaliers for allegedly disregarding an agreement that gave the company exclusive rights to all ticketing for the NBA team.  The Cavaliers have turned to Flash Seats for their reseller needs.
