Yankees Trying To Block Ticket Transactions At StubHub Pickup Location Near Park
Published March 19, 2013
SCALPING LIKELY TO OCCUR: The club also alleges in its complaint the StubHub location will encourage additional scalping and higher pedestrian congestion near the stadium. The file reads, "Those scalpers will purchase 'last minute' tickets at the LMS center, and then attempt to resell them in front of Yankee Stadium, leading to an increase in crime, nuisance and a further diversion of N.Y. Police Department resources in the area surrounding Yankee Stadium." StubHub in a statement said it will "vigorously defend itself" from what it called a "baseless lawsuit." The company said, "This lawsuit is a move by the Yankees to reduce competition and consumer choice. StubHub has always abided by and will continue to abide by the current [New York] statute." Depending on what happens with the injunction hearing, the StubHub pickup location is set to open Friday.
