MLB and StubHub have partnered together since 2007 to give fans more access to tickets.

Major League Baseball announced today that it has renewed its contract with StubHub, the online ticket marketplace owned by eBay. The two firms originally started business together in 2007, and their recent contract expired a few months ago.

Founded in 2000 by two Stanford University business students, StubHub is the world’s largest ticket marketplace. Fans can purchase and sell tickets for sporting events, concerts, circus shows, and theater productions. In 2007, the business was purchased by the internet marketplace company eBay. StubHub has formal relationships with every MLB team (except the Blue Jays), as well as Major League Soccer, the Canadian Football League, eight NFL teams, and twenty NCAA institutions.

MLB Advanced Media CEO Bob Bowman said ”this renewal reflects its successes in an ever-evolving space.”

In a world where technology thrives, this partnership will ensure that fans can remain involved with their teams. It also gives fans a great deal of flexibility when purchasing season ticket plans, or deciding to attend games at the last-minute. StubHub is quick, efficient, and charges only a modest handling fee for all purchases. Sports fans, especially those of Major League Baseball, are glad to see StubHub and MLB extend their partnership
