StubHub Becoming Main Destination For Fans Asking Giants For World Series Tix
Published October 26, 2012
GIANT RETURNS: StubHub Head of U.S. Communications Joellen Ferrer said due to the excitement around the Giants' 8-3 win in Game 1 of the World Series, the website "saw price points increasing by 10 to 20 percent" prior to Thursday night's Game 2. In S.F., Andrew Ross reported ticket prices on StubHub actually declined for Thursday's Game 2 "after the previous evening's blowout, probably reflecting Detroit Tigers fans' hesitation to shell out big bucks." With the Giants holding a 2-0 series lead heading into the three games at Comerica Park, Ross wrote, "Watch ticket prices to dip even further for games in the Motor City" (SFGATE.com, 10/25).
THE SUITE LIFE: The Tigers indicated that they have "leased all of Comerica Park's 73 luxury suites" for the World Series games at the ballpark. The team said that they were leased to "mostly corporate" clients. In Detroit, Bill Shea reported a suite during the World Series went for $29,920 "for a minimum of 10 fans to $46,300 for a maximum of 22 people." The prices "don't include food and beverage costs, but some do include credit toward a 2013 regular-season suite" (CRAINSDETROIT, 10/25).
