Court Temporarily Prohibits StubHub From Opening Pickup Location Near Yankee Stadium
Published March 20, 2013
BATTLE OF THE BRANDS: In N.Y., Ken Belson notes the decision was the "latest move in a battle between the Yankees and StubHub." The Yankees and the Angels were the "only two teams to opt out of a leaguewide deal with StubHub this year." Instead, both teams are "working with StubHub’s rival, Ticketmaster." StubHub claims that the Yankees this year "conspired to have them thrown out of a hotel in Tampa, Fla., near Legends Field, the team’s spring training complex." StubHub said that it "rented space in the hotel so fans could pick up their tickets there." The Yankees did "not dispute that Stubhub was removed from the hotel, but said they were concerned about the privacy of their players" (NYTIMES.com, 3/20).
