Premiership Rugby and StubHub confirm partnership


Premiership Rugby has announced a partnership with StubHub which provides rugby fans with a new place to buy and sell tickets for the Aviva Premiership Rugby Final 2014.

The new agreement will see StubHub become the Official Ticket Marketplace of the Aviva Premiership Rugby Final 2014. Also StubHub will be running their 'Lucky Turnstile' promotion in the west car park where all fans will have the chance to win a range of prizes.

"This is a great initiative for rugby supporters as we start the countdown to this year's Aviva Premiership Rugby Final on 31 May," said Premiership Rugby's Commercial Director, Dominic Hayes.

"Tickets can be purchased at face value direct from Premiership Rugby via StubHub. In addition, if a ticket holder cannot attend the event then StubHub provides them with a safe platform to resell their ticket at a price they set."

Premiership Rugby is in good company. StubHub has a number of successful partnerships in place including global entertainment business AEG including The O2, alongside leading sports rights holders across Premier League football, plus Premiership Rugby Clubs Leicester Tigers, Northampton Saints and Gloucester Rugby.

Nick Harford, Director of Partnerships, International for StubHub added: "We are delighted to be partnering the Aviva Premiership Rugby Final 2014 for the first time. Consistent with many of our sports and music partnerships, StubHub will serve as a transparent channel for Aviva Premiership Rugby Final 2014 tickets, alongside providing supporters with a safe and secure ticket resale platform. We also look forward to providing supporters with the chance to win VIP Experiences to the Final, alongside prizes on the day via StubHub's Lucky Turnstile."

StubHub is the world's largest ticket resale marketplace and part of the eBay Inc family of companies alongside PayPal. StubHub launched in the US in 2000, was acquired by eBay in 2007 and opened its first international office in the UK in March 2012.

Every purchase made through the site is backed by StubHub's comprehensive FanProtect Guarantee. As a true ticket marketplace, StubHub does not own, price or purchase any tickets listed on the site.
